While Dearborn’s Ford Wyoming will always be the OG metro Detroit drive-in, downtown’s Monroe Street Drive-In near Campus Martius is pretty legit. It’s covered in art by local artists, including Detroit’s own Sheefy McFly, who will host a movie night on Thursday.
McFly, or Edward Elecktro as he goes by when he’s spinning music, will be doing a live DJ set and art giveaway before a showing of Back to the Future. (His name is a nod to BTTF’s time-hopping hero, Marty McFly.)
McFly was tapped by Bedrock Detroit to design the art at Monroe Street Drive-In last summer.
Doors at 6 p.m., movie at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 13 at Monroe St. Drive-In Powered by Emagine; 32 Monroe St., Detroit; emagine-entertainment.com; Tickets are $20.
