Looking for a budget-friendly night out for the whole family? Believe it or not, such things still exist! Head down to the West Wind Drive-In and Public Market (9616 Oates Drive, Sacramento) on April 27, 2017, for a free night of movies. In addition to five fun films (Split, Kong: Skull Island, Moana, Sing and XXX: The Return of Xander Cage), The West Wind will also play host to music and kid-friendly events and games. The gates for free movie night open at 6 p.m., but you’re going to want to get there early to secure yourself a good spot. Movies start at 8 p.m. The good news is that this won’t be a one-off event: according to the drive-in’s Facebook page, this will be the first of three free movie nights this year. Stay tuned to Facebook.com/westwindsacramento6drivein or Westwinddi.com for future free movie events and showtimes.
