This is not your grandma’s bingo. On Saturday, Oct. 24, the community is invited to a drive-up bingo game at Marathon Community Theatre. 

This will be an outdoor, socially distanced event with five rounds of bingo broadcast over the car stereo. Tickets to the event are $25 per vehicle (before sales tax and ticket fee) and the occupants of the car receive a kit containing five bingo cards, one clipboard, one marker, one hand-clapper and a menu. Attendance will be capped at 30 cars.

The hand-clappers are to summon a car hop to order off the menu; guests are also welcome to approach the concession stand if properly masked. Guests can also purchase extra bingo cards at the concession stand. 

The bingo game is open to anyone 18 or older. Prizes include wine gift baskets, tickets to the reopening of Marathon  Community Cinema and up to a $250 cash prize on the final round. The more bingo cards sold, the bigger the pot! There will also be a 50/50 raffle, but guests must be present to win.  

Tickets are available at or at the MCT Box Office at 305-743-0994, Monday through Friday from noon to 4 p.m. 

Proceeds from the event and donations support Marathon Community Theatre and Marathon Community Cinema.
