Social Distancing Entertainment: Miami Dolphins To Turn Hard Rock Stadium Into A Drive-In Theater

MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Sometimes looking forward means tapping into the past, which is what the Miami Dolphins are planning to do by turning Hard Rock Stadium into a drive-in theater.

Dubbed "The Outdoor Theaters," the organization is creating a new social distancing entertainment experience in the age of the coronavirus.

The theater will showcase classic Miami Dolphins content and classic motion picture films. It will also allow for the hosting of commencement ceremonies and other events.

The open-air theater can host small groups on the complex's south plaza.

"We've spent several weeks planning this to be able to provide people with a safe option to go out and enjoy movies, classic Dolphins content, concerts, and celebrate 2020 graduates," said Miami Dolphins and Hard Rock Stadium Vice Chairman and CEO Tom Garfinkel. "It's a fundamental human need to physically experience and celebrate events and experiences together, and we're trying to provide options for everyone where they can be safely socially distant and socially present at the same time."
