Durango Drive-In through a partnership with Durango Education Foundation will host over 100 Durango School District 9-R Staff this weekend. 

“When this pandemic began, teachers were given little notice to shift very quickly to distance learning, sometimes with little or no training. Our 9-R educators had to reinvent lessons for an already planned curriculum, learn new technologies, find non-technology solutions to student learning, and figure out how to keep students engaged. How do we even begin to show our gratitude and appreciation for everything our 9-R educators and staff do? This year, we’re hoping to give 9-R staff a little relief and treat them to a drive-in movie in partnership with Durango entrepreneurs, John Oakes and Al Harper.” 

“We are proud to have hosted so many Durango residents over the past few weeks!” exclaimed John Oakes, Durango Drive-In Producer and Entrepreneur, “It’s exciting to partner with Durango Education Foundation to provide our teachers some entertainment going into the start of the school year.” 

Durango 9-R Staff will be hosted to their choice of two movies: 

Friday, September 18 – Groundhog Day – (evening show, Parking: 7pm, Show: 8pm) 

Sunday, September 20 – The Wizard Of Oz – (daytime show, Parking: 3pm, Show: 4pm)
