The story of an underdog, of a guy who held onto hope against all odds, “Rocky” comes back to the big screen this weekend at a new drive-in theater experience at Mount Hope Estate and Winery.

Reels on Wheels opens this weekend at the Renaissance Faire’s Mount Hope Estate in Manheim, offering “Rocky” June 12 and 13. “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” follows on June 19 and 20. 

With social distancing in mind, Reels on Wheels is Mount Hope’s answer to staying in your car while enjoying a theater experience. The cost is $25 per car, and tickets need to be ordered in advance online.

Food and drinks for the show can be ordered at the Taproom & Grille, on the Mount Hope grounds, with burgers, wings and crab cakes on the menu.

Face masks are required outside of your car.
