Mendon Drive-In Theater Sells Out On Reopening Night


MENDON, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Memorial Day is also reopening day for many businesses across Massachusetts, as the state settles into Phase One of Gov. Baker's economic reopening plan.

On Monday, May 25th car washes, hair salons, barbershops, drive-in theaters, lab spaces, pet grooming, and general office spaces outside Boston can start to open back up with certain restrictions.

That includes a drive-in movie theater in Mendon, which quickly sold out of tickets to its two reopening-night shows.

According to the Milford Daily News, Mendon Twin Drive-In started selling tickets late on Wednesday for its upcoming first night back in business. By Friday morning, both movies had sold out.

Starting at 11:59 p.m. on Sunday night, ticket-holders will get to ring in their Memorial Day by watching "Jurassic Park" or "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" from the comfort of their own vehicles.

To allow for social distancing, every other car space will be roped off, there will be a police presence, and workers will be wearing masks and gloves. The company is asking visitors to cover their faces as well.

There will also be plexiglass over the counters, bins will be used to pass any cash and cards, and Milford Daily News says guests will likely be able to order food from the snack bar through an app.

While Memorial Day movies are sold out, the Mendon Twin Drive-In is still offering tickets online for back-to-back drive-in shows for the rest of the week.
