TSD: Delaware’s best take on events, community and local life

Penn Ketchum, managing partner of the eponymous Penn Cinema movie theaters, says discussions are underway to offer drive-in movies at the Wilmington Riverfront.

The Brooklyn-born and now Lancaster County-based Ketchum shared that nugget and others in the latest interview by Teleduction’s Sharon Baker in her “Conversations from Quarantine” series.

Ketchum said he was opening a drive-in theatre in Lititz, Pennsylvania, looking to work out the kinks before possibly taking the concept to other venues including Wilmington.

 

“We’re crazy excited about it … the interest from the public has really blown up,” said Ketchum, who was hopeful about the prospects for a Wilmington drive-in. “We’re already in talks with people along the Riverfront including the Riverfront Development Corporation.  I’m not promising it’s going to happen but we are actively working on it.”

Baker’s discussion with Ketchum covers other ground of interest to movie-goers eager to get back to the cinema, including insights on how the movie business will return to a new post-Covid normal, and his Madison Street theatre’s plans to accommodate social distancing requirements when they are allowed to reopen.
