"Drive-ins are a big part of Showcase Cinemas' 80-year history as the company was one of the first theater chains to introduce and embrace the drive-in concept throughout the 20th century," said Mark Malinowski, Vice President of Global Marketing for Showcase Cinemas. "Therefore, we are excited to bring our history full circle with this new concept that sold out its first show in less than 24-hours. This will be our first step towards reopening Showcase Cinemas with new health and safety protocols in the coming weeks."
"Patriot Place is thrilled to collaborate with Showcase Cinemas to kick off the summer season with this special event," said Brian Earley, Vice President and General Manager of Patriot Place. "We are excited for our guests to enjoy this timeless summer tradition with us from the safety of their vehicles. We are also thankful for the opportunity to give back to the Foxboro community with all ticket sales from the 'Raiders' showing benefitting the Foxboro Food Pantry."
Last month, Showcase Cinemas hosted a "Fan Favorite Showdown" via its social channels to determine fans' favorite film from 64 contenders across all genres. Paramount Picture's "Indiana Jones: Raiders of the Lost Ark" earned the most votes on Twitter and the second most votes on Facebook. Based on those results, Showcase will screen the original "Raiders," the top-grossing film in the summer of 1981, as the Pop-up Drive-in's first feature presentation. Guests will be able to enjoy this time-honored summer tradition from the comfort of their vehicles while adhering to safe social-distancing guidelines.
