The Miami Dolphins will turn Hard Rock Stadium into a drive-in movie theater this summer as a way to entertain fans during the coronavirus pandemic, the team announced this week.

The NFL franchise will allow up to 230 cars to drive into the stadium for a variety of events in the coming weeks, including movie screenings, re-broadcasts of classic Dolphins games of years past and school commencements. Aside from the drive-in venue, the Dolphins will also host small groups at an open-air theater on the south plaza of the Hard Rock Stadium complex.
