From Staff Reports

UNC Asheville will offer the community a chance for a safe, entertaining change of scenery the evening of May 29, presenting a free drive-in screening of Disney-Pixar’s "Onward," with food trucks available on site. 

"Onward" is rated PG.

To help maintain safe social distancing, only 65 vehicles will be admitted and advance tickets are required, first-come first served, available online here.

The movie will be shown in UNC Asheville parking lot P-1, the lot on Campus Drive nearest the Broadway Street entrance to campus. The lot will open at 7:30 p.m. and the movie will begin at sunset, approximately 8:30 p.m.

No “walk-in” viewers will be admitted.

In case of inclement weather, the film will not be shown and the parking lot will be closed. Ticketholders are being urged to visit for updates.

Food trucks will be on-site with food for purchase, and handwashing stations and portable toilets will be provided. Maintaining 6-foot social distancing and mask-wearing are expected when viewers visit the food trucks or other facilities. Cars will be parked 10 feet apart and viewers are encouraged to remain in their vehicles.  

Set in a suburban fantasy world, "Onward" follows two elf brothers who set out on a quest to find an artifact that will bring back their deceased father. The film premiered at the 70th Berlin International Film Festival on Feb. 21, and was released in the U.S. on March 6, but its run was cut short when COVID-19 caused the closure of movie theaters.

The film is now available for online purchase and streaming. More details about social distancing expectations and other safety measures are available on the ticket registration page here.

To find parking lot P-1, visit, and use the menu bars to select the parking lot display.
