Drive-in movies scheduled for summer

The City of Portage plans five drive-in movie screenings.

Movie theaters are closed indefinitely, but you can still catch a flick this summer in Portage.

The city is planning five “Movies in the Park” over the next three months, assuming the state’s stay-at-home order isn’t renewed.
