A night of unparalleled terror! See two horrifying drive-in movie classics, outdoors at Medfield State Hospital. Who will survive and what will be left of them?

We'll be screening these films in a pop-up drive-in style set up! Tickets are $65 per car (not per person), in order for us to cover set-up costs. These events are rain or shine; tickets are nonrefundable.

Upon arrival, you will park in the field near the entrance of Medfield State Hospital where the screen will be set up and view the films from your vehicle.

We do encourage you to arrive early if you would like to walk the grounds of Medfield State Hospital before the film begins at sundown.

We’ll be projecting the film onto a 40 foot inflatable screen using state of the art equipment provided by Boston Light and Sound.

A portion of the proceeds from these screenings will be utilized for the care and maintenance of Medfield State Hospital.
