YMCA of MARTA'S VINEYARD

Summer Drive-In

The MVFF and the YMCA of Martha's Vineyard have teamed up to create a safe, fun Vineyard experience like none before—a summer drive-in!

become a sponsor

the magic happens

Four nights a week, throughout July and August, the parking lot behind the Martha’s Vineyard Ice Arena will be home to a drive-in with ample space for people to enjoy the fun and communal spirit of movies, all while in the safety and comfort of their own vehicles. This year we celebrate the 20th anniversary for the MVFF and the 10th for the YMCA of Martha’s Vineyard - a combined 30 years of bringing the community together.

Tickets & Schedule

all in this together.

Believing that a strong sense of community will carry us through these extraordinarily trying times, we are committed to ensuring that all of our drive-in movie screenings will be "all for one, and one for all" events. Tickets will be pay-what-you-can, meaning everybody can afford to attend, regardless of how the pandemic has affected them.

But we need your help to make this possible, and to pull this off in a few short weeks. Please JOIN US by being a SPONSOR and making a tax-deductible donation at one of the sponsorship levels below. Every donation matters, and by contributing at these levels you demonstrate how much you care about the community of Martha’s Vineyard.
