I really love a good drive-in movie. There's something about hanging out under the stars, watching a good flick and eating snacks on a blanket that feels so right, and so much like summertime. Unfortunately if you're in Fort Wayne enjoying a good old drive-in show requires just a little driving out of the city limits. Luckily, Young Leaders of Northeast Indiana (YLNI) has come to the rescue and is recreating the feel of the drive-in right downtown!

The YLNI Living Fort Wayne Film Series started in the summer of 2014, and after experiencing much success, it's back in full force this summer! Each month from May - September you can come to a different location around Fort Wayne and enjoy some FREE fun and a great movie! Not only does the LFW Film Series feature great films, there are also plenty of family-friendly activities to enjoy and delicious eats to buy while you wait for the sun to go down and the screen to light up! One thing I thought was particularly neat about the movies being screened this summer is that YLNI opened the vote to the public, meaning each movie you get to enjoy is something the people wanted!
