Walsh Announces Fall Drive-In Movie Series Starts Oct. 22

Mayor Martin J. Walsh announced the City of Boston Fall Drive-In Movie Series, organized by the Boston Parks and Recreation Department and the Mayor’s Office of Tourism, Sports, and Entertainment. This Halloween-themed Drive-in Movie Series is made possible by support from the Highland Street Foundation and Xfinity, and host site, the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center.
