BOSTON (AP) - A former horse racing track and a grassy preserve are among the Massachusetts locations hosting special drive-in movie nights this summer amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The former Suffolk Downs property in Boston, which was home to a drive-in theater from 1957 to 1970, will play films every Thursday on a 40-foot inflatable screen.

“Field of Dreams” is the movie slated for July 23. Organizers say they’re planning a diverse range of films, including Spanish language movies, for future dates.

The HYM Investment Group, which is redeveloping the property, says food trucks will also be on site for the weekly event, which will run through Sept. 10.

In Plymouth, meanwhile, the Trustees of Reservations is hosting a series of drive-in movie nights at Holmes Field. The four-week program includes a showing of “Mrs. Doubtfire” on July 24.



The non-profit land conservation organization said it developed the series to give people a chance to go to the movies while most theaters are either closed or at reduced capacity.

The organization said it will showcase a mix of ‘80s favorites and family-friendly films, provide portable bathrooms and offer pre-purchase concessions.
