One beautiful night under the stars, the township kicked off its summer movie season with a screening of the animated family favorite “The Secret Life of Pets 2”.
Free popcorn and drinks were available for families gathering in the parking lot next to the uptown library on May 18. Chairs were provided for safe social distance.
More outdoor movies will be announced soon in parks and other locations in the township. Check out northbergen.org or official social media pages.
Past COVID tradition
Last year, due to COVID-19 restrictions, the township hosted drive-in movies in a few locations. This was common throughout the county, including Bayonne and Secaucus.
The pop-up drive-in theaters were a hit last summer, but they could be a thing of the past as many virus restrictions have been lifted.
According to the municipality, there are no plans for drive-in films. Outdoor films will be shown at various locations every Tuesday.
The memory of the drive-in theater lives on as the films are shown on the portable, inflatable screen used for the drive-in films.
As New Jersey vaccinates more residents, state restrictions continue to be lifted. North Bergen recently hit a milestone by fully vaccinating 44 percent of all adults. At least 57 percent of residents have received one dose of vaccine.
