Movies begin nightly at 8 PM; gates open at 6:30. The movie festival marks the 15th consecutive year of assistance for the Shipman Youth Center.

The beneficiary of the Casella Drive-In Movie Festival is The Shipman Youth Center (SYC) (, a not-for-profit community organization providing support to children and youth ages 10-18. The center was inspired by Thomas Shipman, a designated Lake Placid youth police officer, who died in 1999 and built the center with community donations of money, materials and labor. For the last 21 years, SYC has provided services to over 6,000 different children. Programs include homework time and assistance, community services, recreational services, weekly family-style dinners, dances, and guest speakers. SYC provides a supervised, safe and exciting environment where local children can grow and develop as individuals. Shipman Youth Center is 501 (c) (3) not-for-profit organization.
