ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ) - UPDATE: Due to a chance of bad weather, Friday night’s showing of “Jurassic Park” has been rescheduled to August 28.

“Shrek” will be shown as planned on Saturday, August 22.

EARLIER: The old Happy’s Flea Market location on Williamson Road in Roanoke has almost been transformed into a drive-thru storage center.

Construction is ongoing, but there’s a section of property behind the storage center that’s not being used.

In two weekends, it will be transformed into a drive-in movie theater, with space for up to 200 cars.

The first movie will be Jurassic Park Friday, August 21, and Shrek will be played August 22.

This is a partnership between James Cherney Development and the Williamson Road Area Business Association. Proceeds will benefit the WRABA and The Grandin Theatre Foundation.

Tickets can be purchased here.
