SOUTHINGTON — The Southington Drive-In movie theater will not reopen for its regular season, according to an announcement Monday afternoon.

The announcement was made on the town owned drive-in’s Facebook page after officials said last week a decision would be made soon in conjunction with expected business reopenings in the state.

Shane Lockwood, Plainville-Southington regional health director, said last week he was considering all options in regard to the coronavirus pandemic. He said the decision to reopen was ultimately up to local authorities.

The outdoor theater on Meriden-Waterbury Turnpike normally opens for the summer through the fall. Proceeds benefit local nonprofit groups.

“The town of Southington in conjunction with the Plainville-Southington Regional Health District will re-visit a potential opening for the months of August and September,” the post on the drive-in’s Facebook page said.
