Drive in movie comes to Edgard this week

EDGARD — Locally produced film “The Perfect Mate” will be shown to audiences for the first time on a 40-foot inflatable screen with a 200-pound projector and an FM radio transmitter to create the perfect audio and visual experience from the comfort of a car.

Harvest Time Christian Center in Edgard is hosting drive-in movie nightsat 8 p.m. September 18 and 19 at 1295 Highway 18 in Edgard. Admission is $25 per car. Car hoppers will bounce from car to car to serve popcorn, soft drinks, water and pre-packaged snacks.

Harvest Time director Aneka Moll said the church is pleased to present an event where the community can come together in fellowship while adhering to social distancing.

“We thought it was something good to bring to the area being that people can’t really go anywhere right now,” Moll said. “We do a lot of outreaches at our church for the senior citizens. The people who don’t want to leave the house can come and watch the movie in their car. It even has something for the newer generation; we haven’t experienced an outside theater. It’s something different.”

“The Perfect Mate” is a family friendly comedy with Christian themes. The movie was directed and produced by talented Baton Rouge native Aaron Williams.

“I wanted to do something that was fun and light that got rid of the negativity that we’ve seen everywhere,” Williams said.
