Drive-In Movies Move In Nextdoor to Bay Meadows

Gather your family, pack up the car and enjoy a summertime past-time, the drive in theater has arrived just next door at the San Mateo County Event Center. Our entertainment may look a little different this year, but we’re thrilled there’s an option close to home to make some fresh summer memories! Help keep entertainment safe – bring your masks to wear any time not in a vehicle, always distance 6 feet from others in line for concessions and watch the movie from your vehicle.

A throwback to Movies in the Meadows at Bay Meadows, an outdoor movie night and pop-up night market!


You’re invited to head to the East Parking Lot of the fair to take in an entertaining  movie while enjoying treats from the concession stand as well as refreshing beverages, including cocktails.  Gates open at 7:30pm and the move begins at 9pm. Enjoy a new large screen and movies for all ages including Toy Story 4 (July 10), Finding Nemo (July 11) and Moana (July 17).  Tickets are available now at
