A new drive-in movie theatre experience in NYC will open with screenings of The Phantom of the Opera filmed at Royal Albert Hall, starring Ramin Karimloo in the title role and Sierra Boggess as Christine. Prior to each showing, Phantom alums Ali Ewoldt and Derrick Davis will perform a live concert, accompanied by an 11-piece orchestra.
Previews for the special event begin September 26 at Radial Park in Astoria, Queens, ahead of a double-feature opening night October 1 with the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical and Purple Rain. The line-up will continue with multiple shows each week. For a complete schedule and tickets, click here.
Guests can enjoy the show from their own vehicles or via reserved picnic tables for people who prefer to arrive on foot or bike. Following the requirements of government and health officials, strict health and safety protocols will be implemented, including temperature checks, color-coded wristbands for social distancing, and supervisors to enforce the measures.
Radial Park is a partnership between Friends of Halletts Point and Stark Production Group.
