In an era where “social distancing” is required, at least one old tradition is new again.
Though Brick Township has hosted drive-in movies over the past few summers, this season’s lineup will probably be the best-attended yet. The township announced Tuesday that it will be hosting Drive-In Movies at Windward Beach every Friday evening from June 5 through July 3. The movies will be held at Windward Beach Park and will be subject to guidelines for car gatherings issued by the State. Here’s the schedule:
- June 5: The Lion King
- June 12: Star Wars
- June 19: Frozen II
- June 26: Jumanji
- July 3: Toy Story 4
“We usually have our drive-in movies in August, however once Governor Murphy announced that drive-ins were allowed, I asked our Recreation Department to get some going quickly,” said Mayor John Ducey. “We want to give people the chance to get out and have some quality family time. Hopefully this is the start of a fun summer in Brick Township.”
The movies will begin at dusk and the gates to the parking area will open approximately one-hour before sundown. Parking is limited and will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
