Event Details

A working-class laundress in 19th-century London joins the fight for women's suffrage.

The Women's Suffrage Centennial Commission and the Workhouse Arts Center are partnering together for National Women's History Month to present Drive-In Thursdays: Bold Women in American History Film Series. Every Thursday throughout August at the Workhouse Arts Center Drive-In, we'll present a film featuring the fearless women in history. The Lucy Burns Museum at the Workhouse Arts Center, which tells the story of the suffragists imprisoned at the Occoquan Workhouse and displays statues of suffragists loaned to the Museum by the Women's Suffrage Centennial Commission, will be open prior to the Thursday night showings for exclusive tours to Bold Women in History Drive-In ticket holders. For more details and to buy your tickets for the Bold Women in History Film Series, visit: https://www.workhousearts.org/drive-in-movies/


Tickets are $30 per vehicle. (While parking spaces are not assigned, please note that tall/oversized vehicles will be asked to park in the back rows to give everyone optimal viewing.)


Want to wish someone a Happy BIrthday or Congraulations on a job well done? We've added pre-show shout-outs as a pre-purchase option for the films. Your message will appear on the screen multiple times during the pre-show slide-show on the big screen. If you select this option, please contact [email protected] at the Workhouse after purchase to let us know what message you'd like to have displayed. Please note that this item must be purchased at least 48 hours prior to screening date, so that our editor will have time to include your message.(The pricing for this includes a $30 standard admission ticket and a $50 shout-out message, for a total ticket price of $80.)


We’re excited to be working with Uncle Dave’s Kettle Korn who will be on campus for each of July Drive-In movie nights. They will have some soft drinks and refreshments available for purchase. You may pre-order items from their website here: www.udkettlekorn.com/movie
