MENDON, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Flicks make a return to the big screen outdoors at the Mendon Twin Drive-in just in time for the spring season.

Marking its 63rd season, the drive-in held a grand re-opening on Friday, kicking off with films like The Lost City, Dog, Uncharted, and Spider-Man: No Way Home. Mendon Twin Drive-In charges $32 per auto, and $6 per person if the vehicle is holding more than six people. To enjoy the drive-in, customers park their vehicles in rows, and watch the film with the sound coming from their speakers.

The staff has been working to get the land ready for move night, said longtime employee and Manager John Derdarian.

"We have to make sure the grounds are all dry, and we have to clean, get all the fall leaves, you know we've work hard in the last three weeks," Derdarian said.

According to the drive-in's website, the drive-in was originally built in 1953, and opened a second movie screen in 1998. Mendon Twin Drive-in officials said that despite the age of the institution, their projection booth is equipped with the latest digital projection and Dolby Digital sound.
