On Black Friday, November 27, the Mendon Twin Drive-In in Mendon, Massachusetts, magically becomes the Mendon Christmas Drive-In for the holiday season. Every weekend through the end of December, you can deck your car and load it up with blankets, dress in your most festive PJs, and treat your family to a nostalgic night out.
Tickets, which should be purchased online in advance, are $50 per carload for a laser light show paired with a holiday movie (or $30 for a movie double feature). VIP upgrades featuring early admission and return passes for the 2021 season are also available. The opening weekend movie line-up includes Elf, Frozen, Christmas Vacation and The Santa Claus. Two laser light displays feature either Christmas singalong songs or the Trans Siberian Orchestra. Gates open at 5 p.m., and shows begin at 6 p.m.
This new holiday tradition offers families a safe and fun way to make memories while social distancing. Along with holiday entertainment on two big screens, there will also be holiday treats like peppermint hot chocolate, eggnog, gingerbread whoopie pies and candy canes for families to enjoy during the evening. Santa will deliver a message from the big screen to all of the enthralled children in the audience before each show begins.
Other holiday movies that will be screened during the 2020 Christmas season include The Grinch Who Stole Christmas, Polar Express and A Christmas Story.
The Mendon Christmas Drive-In is located at 35 Milford Street in Mendon, MA.
