Throwback Thursdays: Christmas in July event at the drive-in

The Circle Drive-In Theatre is showing two throwback movies, including one Christmas themed film, to help support The Lackawanna Historical Society.

We could all use a little Christmas spirit with everything going on lately.

And an event hitting Lackawanna County this week could do just that. 

Newswatch 16's Ryan Leckey spotlighted the "Christmas in July" event playing out at The Circle Drive-In Theatre in Dickson City tomorrow, July 23, 2020. 

It's part of something called "Throwback Thursdays." The event helps raise funds for the Lackawanna Historical Society. The nonprofit is located on the same grounds as the University of Scranton.

The Lackawanna Historical Society was founded in 1886. It's the oldest cultural organization in Lackawanna County dedicated to inspiring the exploration of Lackawanna County's history.
