Flashback Weekend: Bruce Campbell live at Midway Drive-In

Bruce Campbell will be appearing live and in person at the Midway Drive-In to kick off his Social Distancing Tour for Flashback Weekend. Nothing like a night under the stars and the Evil Dead trilogy!

Bruce Campbell will be headlining an unprecedented event for Flashback Weekend. The beloved actor will be appearing at the Midway Drive-In in Dixon, Illinois to kick off his Social Distancing Tour on July 10 and July 11.

In these days of quarantine and self-isolation, fans who are looking for a safe and fun night on the town need look no further. What better way to shake off the boredom then seeing Bruce in person presenting the Evil Dead trilogy including the Grindhouse Releasing 4K version of Sam Raimi’s original film!

The organizers at Flashback Weekend are enforcing all COVID-19 protocols. Attendees will be able to sit in the comfort of their cars, watch Bruce on Midway’s gigantic silver screen and listen to the action on their FM car stereos.

Vehicles will be allowed to occupy two spaces and the lot will only hold 250 autos. Audience members are encouraged to wear face masks and also keep the six feet distance rule in mind to ensure everyone’s health and safety.

In addition to Bruce Campbell showcasing Sam Raimi’s cult classics, he will also host Q & A sessions prior to each feature. As if that weren’t enough, VIP passes and a Groovy Package are available and will include photo-ops and a signed commemorative poster.

Celeb Photo-Ops will have the actor pose with fans keeping the Coronavirus personal interaction guidelines in place (six feet apart). These one-of-a-kind pictures will take place on the Midway stage and will include a Deadite projected on screen to give the illusion of crashing the party (literally)!
