MARION – A new drive-in theater is set to open Oct. 30 in Marion.
Construction has been completed for “The Oasis,” located in the parking lot of the Marion Mall.
The Oasis will first host the “Saluki Tailgate Event” prior to the Southern Illinois University and Southeast Missouri State University football game. Then, a double feature will be shown on Halloween night with “Casper” followed by “The Rocky Horror Picture Show.”
The drive-in features amphitheater style parking surrounding a massive 36×50 foot LED screen standing 60-feet above the freshly paved parking lot with a capacity of approximately 500 vehicles.
