POTTSTOWN, Pa (KYW Newsradio)  A popular wedding and banquet venue in a Montgomery County community has been shut down because of COVID-19. But the venue's owner has come up with a novel way to bring people to his property on weekends.

It’s now the “SunnyBrook Social Distancing Drive-In,” and Chuck Gulati, owner of the SunnyBrook Ballroom, said it has become a huge hit.

Gulati recalled a friend kiddingly suggested a few weeks ago he should use his large parking lot to create a drive-in theater.

Gulati launched his venture on social media at the beginning of May.

He expects to show current movies and classics in the coming weeks.​​

The SunnyBrook parking lot can hold 140 cars, and you have to buy tickets online in advance.
