The Stars & Stripes Drive-In Theatre in New Braunfels is one of the latest businesses to announce its plans to reopen this weekend.

The drive-in, located at 1178 Kroesche Lane, stated in a Facebook post on Wednesday that it will be open for nightly screenings starting Friday. The news comes after Gov. Greg Abbott issued his executive order on Monday that allows retail stores, movie theatres and dine-in restaurants to reopen at 25 percent of its capacity.

Ticket buyers are also asked to park at every other parking space and to keep any children in their cars at all times. The drive-in added restrooms are available but are for emergency use only. If guests do not follow the restrictions made by the drive-in, they will be asked to leave without a refund.

The drive-in has a cafe and concessions stands at its facility, however, it will be closed until further notice. For now, guests can bring their own food as long as they clean up after themselves, the company noted in its post.
