If all one can do in public this summer is stay in their car, why not make a movie night out of it?
That’s exactly what the City has proposed, announcing a July series of Drive-in Movie events, with Mission Hill being one of the two site locations for the event.
Mayor Martin J. Walsh announced this week the City of Boston July Drive-In Movie Series, organized by the Boston Parks and Recreation Department and the Mayor’s Office of Tourism, Sports, and Entertainment. This series is made possible by support from the Highland Street Foundation, in partnership with the Age Strong Commission, and host sites, South Boston Convention Center and Mission Hill’s Wentworth Institute of Technology.
This Drive-in Movie Series will include double-feature showings on select Wednesday nights in July, as well as a special matinee viewing with the Age Strong Commission. This series is free, family-friendly, and open to residents of Boston. All event attendees must pre-register by car through an RSVP on Eventbrite which can be accessed through boston.gov/drive-in-movies.
“We are proud to offer free, family-friendly entertainment for the people of Boston through the July Drive-in Movie Series,” said Mayor Walsh. “We are thankful for the Highland Street Foundation’s support to make this happen, and to the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center and Wentworth Institute of Technology for hosting. Our hope is that these movie nights can provide a safe, fun summer respite for Boston residents of all ages.”
Typically, the Highland Street Foundation sponsors scores of in-person events throughout the summer all across Greater Boston. This summer, they moved their event into the car.
“Highland Street Foundation is pleased to partner with the City of Boston to provide the community with an opportunity to enjoy a relaxing, safe evening with loved ones,” said Executive Director Blake Jordan.
The City will be using an LED screen that is visible from afar during the day and at night for viewing pleasure.
