The summer blockbuster season is one of the most anticipated highlights of the year for film fanatics, a time when the explosions are hotter, the stars shine brighter, and the magic of the silver screen is at its apex. Although the lineup may look a little different this year, you can relive some of those celebrated summer flicks that captivated audiences for years thanks to the Palm Springs Cultural Center’s Drive-In Experience.
