One of the best things to emerge out of these trying times is drive-in theaters. They have been popping up around the area since the beginning of the summer, providing socially-distanced, unique experiences that spark joy. The City of Hoboken is the lastest city in the county to announce a slate of drive-in movies at the Hoboken Business Center located at 50 Harrison Street, in the southwest corner of town from September 10th to October 3rd. While the first three movies are tailored towards children, the last viewing of the pop-up event will be tailored to adults. Due to limited capacity, only Hoboken residents can participate in the event.
Funding has been made possible in part bu a Block Grant from the State/County Partnership Program for the Arts, administered by the Hudson County Division of Cultural & Heritage Affairs, Tom DeGise, County Executive & the Board of Chosen Freeholders.
