Although the West Wind drive-in movie theater went dark last year, the coronavirus pandemic has sparked new interest in outdoor cinematic viewing. In response to public demand, the Goleta movie viewing location has reopened today, Memorial Day.

On the slate tonight and tomorrow night (Tuesday, May 26) is a double feature of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (8 :30 p.m.) and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (11:20 p.m.).

West Wind Drive-Ins, which is part of Syufy Enterprises, is now hiring via ZipRecruiter. “We are currently looking for friendly and outgoing individuals to work in our customer service department, which includes cashier, concessions attendant, outreach marketer, and traffic/gate attendant positions,” reads the” post.

A summer staple for families and teenagers for nearly a decade, the drive in closed — seemingly for good — in 2019 after it hosted a customer appreciation night that featured a live band and a free double feature of How to Train Your Dragon 3 and Aquaman.
