Please join the Lake Elmo Jaycees for our annual Drive-in movie night on Friday, August 22 at the Vali-Hi Theater in Lake Elmo!

We will begin the evening with a pre-movie cook out after the gates open and we claim our parking spots. The chapter will provide Hamburgers, Brats, Hot Dogs, buns, chips, and condiments for the BBQ. 

When: FRIDAY, August 22
Where: Vali-Hi Drive-in
1260 Hudson Blvd. N., Lake Elmo, MN 55042 (East 94 at Manning Ave.)
Time: Gates open at 7 p.m. Pre-movie cookout & social- First movie shows at dusk 
It’s highly recommended to arrive prior to gate opening so we can all park as a group in a good viewing location. The drive-in has been known to sell out, and it’s easier to park in a group if we arrive right away. Some of us will be in line as early as 6pm.

Movies for the evening will be posted after they are made public (usually early in the week each week).

Cost: $8.50 per person - $1.00 Children 6–12 - Kids under 6 are FREE (you will need cash to get in, they don’t take credit or debit cards but they do have an ATM on-site after you get in). Event will take place regardless of movies showing. 

Who Are The Lake Elmo Jaycees?

The Lake Elmo Jaycees is a leadership development organization for young adults 18-40, in and around St. Croix Valley Area.

As a civic organization for young people, the Lake Elmo Jaycees are developing the next generation of leaders by providing opportunities to stand up and take action in our communities.

We engage members through project management and social entrepreneurship that will make an impact in their communities and build leadership skills.

Our chapter is comprised of young adults who volunteer their time to benefit the community. Whether the need is for manpower or money, we are there to help! We provide manpower at many events, some are our own events, but we also partner with various organizations and groups have the require help too. Additionally, we contribute by raising money through community projects, fundraisers and charitable gambling for needs that the community and its people may have.

And we have a lot of fun while doing it!

We put on the annual celebration know statewide as Huff n’ Puff, which is held every 2nd weekend in August.

The Lake Elmo Jaycees offers a wonderful way to strengthen your skills as a leader and as an individual by getting involved in your community and making new friends!
