SAUGUS (CBS) — Kowloon in Saugus turned back the clock Thursday night for the grand opening of its car hop and drive-in. The iconic restaurant has transformed its parking lot to comply with Massachusetts social distancing guidelines.
Customers can now be served in their cars or at outside tables. There are also small pieces of AstroTurf in the parking lot where people can set up their own tables and chairs.
Thursday night’s event was free and featured the rock band The Platters. The drive-in movie theater will open on Tuesday.
“A lot of the customers are requesting certain movies. ‘Grease’ happened to be one of them, ‘Jaws’ another,” co-owner Bob Wong said. “We’ll see if we get approval for those and put them on the screen.”
The first movie shown will be “E.T.” Movie reservations are required – it costs $20 for a car or a table voucher.
