Preservation Maryland Special Event: Phoenix Rising 2020…At The Drive-In!

Thu, 10/01.
6:00pm — 9:30PM

Preservation Maryland invites you to a very special evening event at Bengie’s Drive-In on Thursday, October 1, 2020 – the safe and celebratory event will reimagine two of our favorite events of the year – Phoenix Rising and the Best of Maryland Awards – and a one-night-only screening of The Money Pit.

The “previews” will be a video update about Preservation Maryland, our major programs and projects, and this year’s Best of Maryland Awards – and our feature presentation will be “The Money Pit” on the big screen!

One-night only! Special screening of the slapstick, family-friendly comedy about home renovations: “The Money Pit” (1986) starring Tom Hanks & Shelley Long.

Please enjoy complimentary popcorn and soda throughout the event thanks to our generous sponsors! All proceeds support Preservation Maryland.

One Ticket Per Car (8 Person Max Per Car)
