Plymouth – July 9, 2020 – The Trustees today announces it will offer a series of drive-in movie events for four weeks this summer at Holmes Field in Plymouth. “Fresh Air Flicks” will begin on July 17 in Plymouth for four weeks.
“With indoor movie theaters still at limited capacity due to COVID-19, The Trustees is stepping up to bring family-friendly outdoor movies to the public in a safe and responsible way,” says Jocelyn Forbush, Executive Vice President for The Trustees. “Holmes Field is a wonderful location, and our goal is always to use our special places for the public good.”
The new series, sponsored by Rockland Trust Bank, was developed in the midst of COVID-19 shutdowns as The Trustees searched for alternate ways to offer outdoor experiences through its 119 special places. Although The Trustees is 129 years old, the organization is innovating by offering people a chance to go to the movies when most movie theaters are either closed or at reduced capacity.
Returning to a bygone era, the movies will be a mix of 80s favorites and family-friendly classics, and it will cost $30 per car for nonmembers, and $25 per vehicle for Trustees members. Tickets are on sale now to the general public in advance of the first showing in Plymouth on July 17, and can be purchased online by visiting the Fresh Air Flicks event page. Nonmembers will also have an opportunity to simultaneously purchase Trustees family memberships ($70) as well.
The schedule and movies include:
- July 17: The Goonies
- July 24: Doubtfire
- July 31: BIG
- August 7: Finding Nemo
Portable bathrooms will be open and visitors will have an opportunity to pre-purchase concessions so no transactions occur on-site. All visitors older than two will be required to wear masks when outside their cars and must practice social distancing by keeping a minimum of six feet away from other parties.
Movies start at 8:30PM and the events are rain or shine, with audio available via an FM radio station. Visitors must show proof of purchase via a printed ticket or on a smartphone and vehicles without proof of purchase will not be allowed to enter.
