Zeiterion Drive-In


The Z Drive-In is closed for the winter, but stay tuned for new dates this spring!

Whether you remember drive-ins fondly or if you’ve never been before, you’re in for a real treat. We’ve assembled a fantastic line-up of live music and movies so we can safely gather to sing, laugh, and smile together again. Performances inside the theater may be paused, but having fun is not. That’s why we’ve created this drive-in, because we’ll always do what it takes to safely come together to experience the power of the performing arts!

How it works:

  • Location:  Seastreak Ferry “Whale’s Tooth” Parking Lot, 532 Acushnet Ave, New Bedford.
  • Tickets must be purchased in advance online. There will not be a box office on site. You can either print your ticket or display it on a phone for entry.
  • Each ticket admits one car, regardless of the number of occupants.
  • Entry is one hour before showtime.
  • Smaller cars will be directed to the front, trucks and SUVs will be directed to the back, with one empty space between vehicles.
  • You may sit or stand in the empty spot adjacent to the left of your vehicle. No congregating with other visitors anywhere on the premises.
  • A face covering must be worn whenever you’re out of your vehicle.
  • Restrooms will be available, and they will be monitored to ensure safety.
  • Food and beverage are permitted.
  • Sound will be broadcast to your car radio.
  • Please leave your pets at home.

Guests are required to adhere to all the drive-in rules, which are outlined here

What if it rains?
If a drive-in movie is cancelled due to inclement weather, you will have the option to receive a full refund.

If a drive-in concert is cancelled due to inclement weather, we will make every effort to reschedule performance and your tickets will automatically transfer to the new date. If it’s cancelled due to inclement weather and no reschedule date is available, you will have the option to receive a full refund.
