Millburn Opens Registration For Drive-In Movies

Caren Lissner

MILLBURN, NJ – The theme song for the film "The Karate Kid" is "Cruel Summer" — which may be appropriate during the coronavirus pandemic. But summer may be less cruel in Millburn as the town prepares to host five nights of drive-in movies, with the proceeds going to charity.

The events will take place June 25 through June 29 in the Millburn High School Parking Lot, 462 Millburn Ave. There's a $25 per car minimum per night (registration details below).

These events are open to Millburn residents only.

The films shown will be:

  • Thursday, June 25: The Karate Kid
  • Friday, June 26: A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood (the Mr. Rogers film with Tom Hanks, not the documentary)
  • Saturday, June 27: The Goonies
  • Sunday, June 28: Aladdin (2019)
  • Monday, June 29: Honey I Shrunk the Kids

Movies start at 8:30 p.m. each night. The lot will open at 7:45 p.m. Please arrive by 8:15 p.m. at the latest.

Viewers must remain in their car, and there are other restrictions (see here for full list).

Tickets are $25 per car minimum. However, you can donate additional funds. Net proceeds go to four local nonprofit organizations, including those to help with food for local needy individuals and families.

To register, head to register.communitypass.net/millburn. Click “Browse Activities,” then “Township of Millburn Activities 2020” and hit "continue" to register.

In other news, on Tuesday, Gov. Phil Murphy changed his restriction on outdoor gatherings, with social distancing and other regulations still in effect.
