TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Even though you're not allowed to go to a movie theatre now, Backwoods Crossing has you covered on the theatre experience.

They rented a movie projector to set up on the lawn for a drive-in experience.

On Saturday, they will be showing a classic: Indiana Jones, Raiders of the Lost Ark.

The restaurant will also have a special menu as well as popcorn and soda.

Backwoods Crossing owner Tyler Rice says he's looking forward to giving people something to do now that the stay-at-home order will be lifted.

"We're really excited," Rice said. "It's going to be fun for the community, and we really appreciate the support thrown at us from so many people and it's just been a real blessing."

The first showing sold out within the first two hours of the announcement.

They aren't sure if they'll do more, but do plan to open their dining services on May 11.
