The plywood video booth where self-recorded memories tell stories of September 11 in the documentary “Memory Box”

Shotwell Drive-In, located just off Route 1 in Rockport, will show two films the first week of September: “Memory Box: Echoes of 9/11”, directed by Bjørn Johnson and David Belton, on Thursday September 2, and “Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back” by George Lucas on Saturday, September 4. Both screenings will start at 7:30 p.m. the room will open at 6.30 am. Late entry may not be permitted.

The new documentary “Memory Box” tells the story of 9/11 through personal, self-recorded memories of a plywood video booth that have never been shown on film. Twenty years later, to mark the anniversary of September 11, the same witnesses returned to the video booth to reflect on the past two decades.

“The Empire Strikes Back” is the fifth film in the Star Wars series. Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), Han Solo (Harrison Ford), Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) and Chewbacca (Peter Mayhew) are attacked by Imperial forces and his AT-AT walkers on the ice planet Hoth. As Han and Leia escape to the Millennium Falcon, Luke travels to Dagobah in search of Yoda. It is only with the help of the Jedi Master that Luke will survive when the dark side of the Force invites him into the ultimate duel with Darth Vader (David Prowse).

Tickets cost $ 20 per vehicle and are only available online. Visit pointsnorthinstitute.org to purchase and view the full summer schedule. Toilets are available and food trucks will be present during some screenings.
