A popular Hudson Valley restaurant is transforming into a pop-up movie theater for charity this weekend and will show a cartoon and what some consider a patriotic film.

"In hopes to bring our guests a sense of normalcy during this time we are hosting a Pop-up Drive In Movie," Double O Grill wrote on Facebook.

Cars are told to arrive between 7 p.m. and 7:45 p.m. Officials say no car will be allowed in after 8 p.m. and the movie will start promptly at 8:30 p.m.
