Fly-In Theater returns to Oshkosh

flyin_theater1For the fifth straight year, Ford Motor Co. will host the Fly-In Theater on the AirVenture grounds, with additional support from Hamilton Watches. The 58th annual EAA fly-in convention is July 26-Aug. 1 at Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh.

The outdoor theater, located adjacent to EAA’s Camp Scholler camping area, will be open each evening (weather permitting) from Sunday, July 25, through Saturday, July 31. The walk-in theater is reminiscent of drive-in theaters of the past, complete with open-air seating and popcorn. There is no admission charge for the theater, which is open to all AirVenture guests. Each evening’s show begins at approximately 8:30 p.m. with an introduction by a celebrity presenter, followed by a classic aviation or current feature film shown on a five-story-tall projection screen at 9 p.m.
