A Christmas-themed drive-in movie night is in the works for East Islip.

The Town of Islip will be presenting holiday classic “Elf” on Friday, Dec. 4, at Brookwood Hall in East Islip.

The free show, which is sponsored by Good Samaritan Hospital, will begin at 6:30 p.m. Gates will open at 5 p.m.

Hot chocolate will be available.

The town has held similar events throughout the pandemic, including its Summer Drive-In Movie Series and, most recently, its Halloween showing of “Goosebumps” on Oct. 30.

“Our Summer Drive-In Movie Series was so well received, we brought it back by popular demand for two special holiday-themed movies,” said Islip Supervisor Angie Carpenter.
