The Blue Starlite Miami Urban Drive-In, a boutique drive-in movie theater that announced it was headed to Wynwood in July, has at last set an opening date -- and it's just in time for cooler fall weather.

In a statement released yesterday, the Blue Starlite announced it'll officially open Wednesday, October 9. Film buffs can get an early taste at preview nights running September 18 through 23.

Since we last checked in with owner Josh Frank, who moved both his life and his successful drive-in theater business to Miami from Austin, Texas, this summer, the Blue Starlite has decided on a location at 70 NW 29th St. in Wynwood, right next to O Cinema.

The Blue Starlite's new home can accommodate up to 20 cars, making movies at the drive-in a real boutique experience. For patrons arriving by bike, by bus, or on foot, there'll be ten reserved tables with seating areas and drive-thru speakers to hear the film.

Though the space is intimate, moviegoers can expect the full drive-in experience: vintage car speakers, concession snacks, and a lineup of pop culture classic and cult films on the big screen.

You can bike there with a bunch of friends, do a bad-ass potluck (because they allow you to bring food/drinks) and see a movie for 10 bucks? I don't know what planet you guys live on, but that is an AWESOME DEAL. One drink for me anywhere in Wynwood is about 15.00 and there is no movie involved.

Needs classic gore and horror films, and I think I should be aloud to use a homemade cardboard vehicle or store bought kids car.

I think its great! You can always take your 25 dollars and stay home if you don't care to spend it on a great night out. Netflix is cheep and you can stay at home alone too!
