COLORADO SPRINGS — The field was full at UCHealth Park on Saturday night, but not with baseball players.

The Rocky Mountain Vibes hosted their first drive-in movie night, staring 'Back to the Future'.

Originally, the movie night sold out in 3 minutes, with 150 spots available on the field.

Everyone in attendance had to stay at their cars, with their masks, due to COVID-19, but for the Vibes, Saturday's movie night was a smashing success.

"This was not as easy as an ordeal as we thought," explained Chris Phillips, General Manager of the Rocky Mountain Vibes. "It kind of feels like a gameday. People are pumped to be out here. There was a lot of logistical work with getting the field ready and marked, but we are here and the weather has held off for now. We are having fun."

If the field isn't in bad shape after Saturday's movie night, the Vibes will announce another movie night on Monday.

The hope is to have a movie night on the field, without cars, and with blankets & lawn chairs in the future, With social distancing, Phillips says the Vibes could have up to 900 people attend.
