CORONADO ISLAND FILM FESTIVAL PRESENTS NOMADLAND AT THE SOUTH BAY DRIVE-IN

On Thursday, November 12th The South Bay Drive-in is proud and pleased to support Coronado Island Film Festival's Opening Night featuring Searchlight Pictures, NOMADLAND. Winner of the Golden Lion Award at this year’s Venice Film Festival, it continues to draw critical acclaim. The film overflows with humanity, complexity, and solitude set amidst the landscape and beauty of the American West. Based on Jessica Bruder’s non-fiction book Nomadland: Surviving America in the 21st Century, the film follows Fern (Frances McDormand), an invented character, on her nomadic journey in 2008 following the economic crash. McDormand, who produced the film, delivers a raw, stubborn, and tender performance that will no doubt land her on many awards shortlists this year. Brilliantly directed and written by Chloé Zhao, who paces the film in a subtle, unflinching manner to reveal a side of America that many are not aware exists.

Gates open 7:00 pm, screening at 6:00pm

INCLUSIVE TICKET PRICE: Each $100.00 ticket allows entry for one 4-wheeled vehicle, no campers, RVs or trailers please.
