Expo Center, King County join forces to show “Last Crusade”

Get your free tickets quick — it’s bound to be a popular event, and space is limited.

The Enumclaw Expo Center will be opening its doors once again for a showing of “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade”.

The drive-in movie event, which will be held in the north parking lot Sept. 12, will allow people to begin parking their cars around 5:30 p.m., with the movie starting at 7:45 p.m.

Tickets are normally $20 per car, but with this event being sponsored by King County Parks, admission this time around is free, but you still must reserve your spot at www.enumclawexpo.com. No buses or motorhomes will be allowed.

This is not a money-making venture for the Expo Center, even though the coronavirus has led to a net loss of more than $500,000 for the venue.

“By the time we purchase licensing fees (which is based on your attendance), provide labor for parking and to be sure proper protocols are in place, and paying for the production company out of Bellingham, we barely break even,” Expo Center Director Rene Popke said in an interview announcing the drive-in movies at the start of the summer. “We are doing this as a community offering and as a safe alternative to social gatherings and events.”

Food trucks available at the event will be Pecos BBQ Pit, Mayan Mobile, and Plateau Popcorn.
