U.S. Cellular Bringing Free Drive-In Movie Experience To Des Moines

Des Moines, Iowa (Aug. 17, 2020)

U.S. Cellular is hosting a FREE Drive-In Movie in Des Moines on Aug. 28 and 29 in the North Lot of the Iowa State Fairgrounds. This “Movie Under the Stars” experience includes a family-friendly movie for 250 vehicles free of charge each night. Details are available at driveindsm.uscellular.com, and anyone 18 years or older can register for a parking pass now. Only one person in each vehicle needs to register for a pass, and they are available on a first-come, first-served basis. In addition to free entry, U.S. Cellular will provide each vehicle a complimentary “movie box” that includes snacks and drinks from local vendors and other goodies.


“As many community events and summer activities have been postponed or canceled this Summer, we wanted to provide a safe experience for people to leave their homes and have fun outdoors – at no cost to them,” said Mike Adams, director of sales for U.S. Cellular in Iowa and Nebraska. “Nostalgia for drive-in movies has reached new heights, and as a dedicated member of the Des Moines community, we hope movie fans will join us for a night of entertainment the whole family can enjoy.”


U.S. Cellular is bringing a custom, 52-foot screen to the Fairgrounds for the movie. The lot will open at 6:30 p.m., and parking spots will be strategically mapped to ensure the best viewing angles and distances for peak safety. Audio will be enabled through each car’s FM radio, and on-site attendants will guide vehicles to their parking spots and check that everyone follows safety guidelines.
