MOVIE NIGHT at the Soccer Field

Family Flick Night

When BELD offered to sponsor Movie Night in Braintree last summer, the thought conjured up images for some folks of watching a movie under the stars in the “old days”—at an outdoor drive-in theatre.

BELD would sponsor the free family-friendly film, “Hotel for Dogs,” to be shown at the high school soccer field on a huge, inflatable movie screen with professional sound.

Residents toting lawn chairs or blankets arrived early to stake out a good spot and visit the concession stand, operated by Recreation Department summer staff, for a soft drink or a hot dog prior to the 8:15 start of the movie. The weather cooperated, there weren’t too many mosquitoes, and everyone enjoyed the movie—just like the old days at the drive-in.
