Bel Aire Diner: Drive-in Movie
A Queens diner’s parking lot is currently one of the go-to destinations in NYC
Astoria staple the Bel Aire Diner has quickly become one of the hottest tickets in town — because of a new drive-in theater. The 55-year-old diner launched (started) the movie theater in its parking lot a little more than a week ago, and tickets sold out in 3 minutes. At its most recent event, 80 tickets sold out just three minutes after they were released (were available to people) on Friday for two Saturday night screenings of the 1993 comedy film the Sandlot.
