Ontario International Airport has announced that, in response to restrictions brought about by COVID-19, it is partnering with the City of Ontario and Street Food Cinema to offer a series of free drive-in movies on airport property, the company said.
The movies will be displayed on two 50-foot screens with digital sound fed directly into passenger vehicles via FM radio signal. Drive-In Movie Nights at Your Airport will take place over four different nights through July.
The series will premiere on Friday, June 19, with Ford v Ferrari, a major portion of which was filmed at ONT. It will be followed by a showing of The Sandlot on July 3, Princess Bride on July 17, and Napoleon Dynamite on July 31.
The movie series is designed to bring neighboring communities together while providing critically needed support to local food banks. To that end, movie-goers are encouraged to bring donations of canned or boxed food.
The City of Ontario is located 35 miles east of downtown Los Angeles.
