While traditional movie theaters around the world largely remain closed, the drive-in movie theater industry has been thriving, as they allow audiences to remain socially distanced from the comfort of their own cars, with this weekend seeing the release of 1981's The Evil Dead in select drive-ins to celebrate a new restoration. The Pride's Corner Drive-In in Westbrook, Maine will be the first location for the event, with Grindhouse Releasing teasing that more theaters are on the way. The outlet also confirmed to Bloody Disgusting that, while most theaters will be getting the 2K restoration, they have the option to screen the 4K restoration if they have the necessary equipment, which also features a new score from original composer Joseph LoDuca.
The distributor shared the news on Twitter, which original star Bruce Campbell passed along to his fans, noting, "Stay scared AND safe!"
Last summer saw a similar rerelease of the film, which was the debut of the new score.
