    Tesla aficionados,

    How long has it been since you've been to a drive in movie? We tried it out tonight and concluded that it was better than going to a theater. Cheaper too. Better seat, personal AC control, bring your own food and drinks. Biggest challenge was keeping the headlights off. Sorry, no charging stations.

    So, join our EV meet up and pot luck picnic on the evening of June 7th at the drive-in. You'll have several movies to choose from including:



    • 22 Jump Street
    • Edge Of Tomorrow (Tom Cruise)
    • Godzilla
    • X Man
    • An animation flick
    • Million Dollar Arm

    Bonuses include craft fair, live music, and for those that have kids, there as nice play area. While you can eat at the snack center, our host Eulices Cuevas said we could do our own pot luck. He'll bring out a table for us.

    This is the premium treatment. We'll have marked off car spaces. Enjoy in your car, or bring lawn chairs to watch the movie and the stars!


    • Location: West Wind Drive in. 9616 Oates Drive, Sacramento, off 50 and Bradshaw.
    • Time: Arrive at 6:00 to 6:30PM (before the crowded lines form up).
    • Bring: Something to share for potluck (send me your intention if you can)
    • RSVP: If you can, but don't let it stop you if you have a last minute availability

    It's been over 15 years since going to a drive-in with my HS sweetheart. Miss the vibe! Thanks for posting.

    Tesla Drivers (with or without kids!)

    Saturday meet up with other drivers at the Drive In Movie theater. For those with kids, bring the family.


    Not only meet other EVers but check out the craft fair and live music. There are two kid play areas with settings, slides, etc. All this for less than the price of a normal theater ticket. I'm told that they will check the frunk of Model S' for stowaways.


    When movie time rolls around, you'll have several double features to choose from including:



    • Edge Of Tomorrow (Tom Cruise) followed by Godzilla.
    • [FONT=Tahoma, Calibri, Verdana, Geneva, sans-serif]Maleficent f
    • ollowed by Million Dollar Arm.
    • The Fault in Our Stars followed by Blended
    • X-Men: Days of Future Past followed by The Amazing Spider-Man 2
    • Neighbors followed by A Million Ways to Die in the West[FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][/FONT]

    Join us in the potluck or order a pizza to be delivered from the snack bar to you car, after that big bag of pop corn. Then, enjoy the movie in your car with the optional kids (or let them fall asleep in the back), or bring lawn chairs to watch it under the stars with portable FM radio!


    Sorry, no EV charging yet, but let's show them the opportunity of supporting EV customers.
