SPRINGFIELD, NJ — Starting next month, the Springfield Recreation Department will be partnering with local company Boxcar to bring three drive-in movies to town.

On Wednesday, July 8; Thursday, July 23; and Thursday, August 13, the parking lot at the Springfield Community Pool will be transformed into a socially-distant outdoor movie theater, with a big screen, FM audio transmission, and food delivery.  Movie titles, screening times, and reservation fees will be announced soon.

Each movie will have limited spots available that are first-come first-served and subject to advance reservation only through Boxcar's service.
