Drive-in theatres are opening this weekend in Ontario
Drive-in theatres are gearing up to re-open this weekend under Step 1 of Ontario's re-opening plan.
Now with Ontario moving into Step 1 on Friday, drive-ins are once again allowed to reopen. Although not listed under the province's Step 1 reopening plan, Dakota Brasier, a spokesperson for the minister of heritage, sport, tourism and culture industries, told Global News that drive-in cinemas are indeed permitted to open in Step 1.
The 5-Drive-in Theatre in Oakville has shows planned for Friday and Saturday nights on three screens getting underway at 9:25 pm. They have old films such as Jurassic Park (1993) and Jaws (1975), and newer films like A Quiet Place Part II.
