Go retro for a good cause on Tuesdays at Transit Drive-In

Summer evenings at the Transit Drive-In (6655 S. Transit Road, Lockport) are a local tradition — and in recent years, so are Retro Movie Tuesdays. This season's selection of weekly double-bills feature beloved favorites from the 1970s, 1980s, 1990s and early 2000s, as well as the 1939 classic, “The Wizard of Oz.”

Proceeds from each screening will go to a different charity. For more info, including links to information about each film and MPAA ratings, visit transitdrivein.com/retromovietuesday.
