The two-week “pause” in reopening the state’s economy has left a single theater with a monopoly on legally showing movies on the big screen.
So, on Friday night, Christmas movies “Die Hard” and “The Grinch Who Stole Christmas” will light up the night with other titles at the Rustic Tri View Drive In.
For at least the next two weekends, the Route 146 drive-in in North Smithfield will be the only place in Rhode Island where you can legally watch a movie on the big screen.
“It’s starting to get colder, so we don’t know how many weeks we’ll actually get,” general manager Holli St. Jacques told The Providence Journal, adding that this weekend is a go. “I’m pretty sure next weekend, also,” she said. “It’s looking positive.”
