City of Boston Fall Drive-In Movie Series announced

The free, Halloween-inspired drive-in movie series is coming to the BCEC this October.

Mayor Martin J. Walsh today announced the City of Boston Fall Drive-In Movie Series, organized by the Boston Parks and Recreation Department and the Mayor's Office of Tourism, Sports, and Entertainment. This Halloween-themed Drive-in Movie Series is made possible by support from the Highland Street Foundation and Xfinity, and host site, the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center. 

Attendees are encouraged to get in the holiday spirit and dress in their most festive costume while enjoying Halloween classics. This Drive-in Movie Series will include double-feature showings on select nights in October, as well as a special matinee showing in partnership with the Age Strong Commission. This series is free and open to Boston residents only. 

"While Halloween festivities will look different this year, we are proud to offer free, family-friendly entertainment for residents of Boston this fall," 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 for hosting. Our hope is that these movie nights can provide a safe, fun fall activity for Boston residents of all ages." 

"In the midst of these challenging times, 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.
