The Dive-In Movies began on May 4, with a sold-out show for “Coco.”  The featured film on June 1, “Jumanji 2” is the story of four high school kids who discover an old video game console and are drawn into the game’s jungle setting, literally becoming the adult avatars they choose. What they discover is that you don’t just play Jumanji, you have to survive it. The third movie will be on Friday, July 6, with Disney’s animated hit, “Moana.”
