Epic Theatres brings back drive-in movies in Deltona

The refreshment stand is still open and classic movies are playing at Epic Theatres of Volusia County.

The theater started showing drive-in movies on March 19 as a way to give families a night out while still maintaining social distancing guidelines

"Enjoy a night 'out' from the safety of your vehicle," the theater's website reads. They also have a location in Clermont showing drive-in movies.
