This event is SOLD OUT!
Please stay tuned — we’re working on more events in the near future!
Join us Saturday, May 23rd as we join forces with Fullerton’s The Muckenthaler Cultural Center (“The Muck”) to bring you a social-distance-friendly evening of cinema under the stars: Drive-In Movie Night at The Muck! Pack up your car with your favorite goodies and come on out for Rob Reiner’s 1987 classic The Princess Bride!
Tickets for this special event go on sale this Tuesday, May 19th at 12pm! Tickets will be $20 per car, regardless of number of people in your car, and will be available exclusively online — visit this event page for link!
Based on the William Goldman novel of the same name, The Princess Bride is a fairy tale adventure about “fencing, fighting, torture, revenge, giants, monsters, chases, escapes, true love, miracles” that became an unlikely cult classic beloved by fans of all ages. Led by Goldman’s own witty and ultra-quotable screenplay adaptation, a remarkable cast, and a consistently thrilling narrative, The Princess Bride received the ultimate honor of being selected for preservation by The National Film Preservation Board in 2016.
The Muckenthaler Cultural Center is located at 1201 W. Malvern Ave, Fullerton, CA 92833. Gates open at 6:30pm, and Film begins at 8:15pm, on Saturday, May 23rd! Tickets go on sale this Tuesday!
We are excited to partner with The Muck on this Social-Distance-Friendly event! To ensure the safety of our guests and volunteers:
- The film’s soundtrack will be accessible exclusively through your car’s FM Radio — no need to open your window during your event!
- Tickets will be sold exclusively online, until event is sold out. Ticket holders will be asked to display their tickets either on their smart devices/phones, or printed, upon entry — they will be scanned by our staff through your window.
- Guests are invited to pack their cars with food and snacks!
- Restrooms will be available for our guests. We ask that guests wear a mask when leaving their cars to walk to and from the restroom. A Frida Cinema volunteer will be sanitizing the restrooms between uses.
- Limited-capacity venue! Tickets will be available Tuesday at 12pm, until they’re sold out!
- Trucks / tall cars will be asked to park along the side parking areas, as parking in the middle area will obstruct viewership.
- As the event was approved based on our assurances that it would be 100% social-distance-safe, we do ask that those in the truck bed keep their masks on.
- Please keep in mind that the soundtrack is coming in through FM radio (this is a “silent” event otherwise). As such, either have a low-volume FM radio in your truck bed with you, or you can slide open the little window to your truck bed and play through your car stereo at a reasonable volume.
ABOUT THE MUCK
Commissioned at an original cost of $35,000, the Muckenthaler home was built by Walter and Adella Muckenthaler in 1924 atop a hill in Fullerton. The 18-room, 8.5-acres mansion was donated to the city in 1965 by Harold Muckenthaler, who wished to see his childhood home used as a cultural center for the public.
In 1999, the Muckenthaler received designation by the National Register of Historic Places. In its 54th year, the Muck produces more than 60 performances, gallery exhibits, festivals and special events; and more than 3,500 hours of arts education classes at the Muck and in 25 outreach sites serving more than 41,000 people every year.

Our awards and accolades include the 2009 Fullerton Chamber of Commerce Quality of Life award for best non-profit organization in the city, the 2010 Arts Program of the Year award from Arts Orange County, and past reader’s poll awards from OC Parentingfor Best Historic Site.
