MUSKEGON, Mich. — One of West Michigan's few drive in movie theaters will extend its normal season. 

The Getty 4 Screen Drive In Theatre normally closes after Labor Day, but instead will stay open until late October. They will have movies and events all the way up until the third annual Halloween at the Getty event on October 26.

“Since the Muskegon Muskrat saw his shadow August 27 and declared eight more weeks of summer, we decided to keep the Getty going until Halloween!”declared Kevin Sims, General Manager of the Getty. “Actually, Halloween at the Getty has been very popular over the last two years. The Fall Classics seem like the perfect way to keep things hopping between IT CHAPTER 2 and Halloween.”
