‘Wonder Woman 1984’
8:30 p.m. Friday. Vinegar Hill Music Theatre, 53 Old Post Road, Arundel, $20, $30 per vehicle.
Vinegar Hill Music Theatre is presenting a drive-up screening of last year’s superhero film “Wonder Woman 1984.” Gal Gadot reprises her role as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman and there’s a whole lot of drama, action and thrill centered around a mystical object called the Dreamstone. No need to wear your bullet-deflecting bracelets or bring your golden lasso, but no one’s going to stop you either.
