Miss the days of drive-in movies?

A group has brought the idea back, with a modern and unique twist. On Thursday night, the lights on the Hoan Bridge will be synced with a nearby projection screen as part of a private event. We’ve got tickets for our members.

You’ll be able to watch Will Ferrell in Elf or Bruce Willis in Die Hard on a big screen while an even bigger screen dances behind them.

The Dec. 1 event is hosted by Light the Hoan, the nonprofit organization that worked to install lights on the bridge.

The family-friendly Elf screens at 5:30 p.m. and Die Hard starts at 8 p.m.

Urban Milwaukee has secured a limited number of spaces for member vehicles. Logged-in members can claim their free tickets while supplies last.

One ticket includes access to a single showing for one vehicle, and as many people as you can comfortably fit in it.

While supplies last, members can claim a ticket to the 5:30 p.m. screening or the 8:00 p.m. screening.

Details on where to park and how to watch will be provided to those that claim tickets.
