South Fork food pantries including All for the East End's Feed the Need Campaign will be the beneficiaries of a two-night drive-in screening of the new Disney movie "Artemis Fowl" on Friday and Saturday at the grounds of the Hampton Classic in Bridgehampton.

The film, an adaptation of a young-adult novel by Eoin Colfer, is directed by Kenneth Branagh. It begins streaming on Friday on Disney Plus.

The plot centers on a 12-year-old genius, Artemis, who must battle a race of underground fairies that may have caused his father's disappearance. 

Blade has organized the event to benefit East End food pantries and other organizations, including AFTEE, to provide pandemic relief, with all proceeds being donated.

Tickets begin at $125 per car and go up to $5,000 with various packages — including preferred viewing, snack boxes, signed books, and more — and are available on Eventbrite. Gates will open at 7 p.m., and cars will not be admitted after 8.
