It's been a rough winter. Raise your hand if you're ready for warm summer nights and watching a flick at the drive-in theater.

The good news is you won't have to wait much longer for this to be a reality.

Blue Grass Drive-In Theater in Blue Grass, Iowa (a mere 11 miles west of Davenport) has announced it's opening date for the 2019 season- The theater will show its first movie on April 19.

While Blue Grass has not said what it's first showing will be, it's safe to say Avengers: End Game will be playing the weekend of April 26. I'm sure Blue Grass can expect a packed lot for that opening.

I've visited the drive-in several times, and it's definitely worth the short trip. There are two separate screens showing two different movies at once, a packed concession stand, and plenty of room on the lot to park your car. Definitely make plans to visit the theater this spring and summer.
