With cinemas shut down or operating with reduced capacity during the coronavirus pandemic, Sony Pictures plans to host socially distant drive-in screenings of classic titles like Ghostbusters and The Karate Kid on its studio lot in Culver City.

The makeshift drive-in — a throwback to an earlier Hollywood movie industry — will be erected at the Thalberg parking lot on the historic studio lot, and will start showcasing library titles on Aug. 14.

And foregoing a planned theatrical release, the Tristar Pictures/Stage 6 Films’ romantic comedy The Broken Hearts Gallery, executive produced by Selena Gomez, will also get drive-in treatment on the studio lot.

Sony bought The Broken Hearts Gallery for less than $10 million after the pandemic had begun and had planned to release it theatrically on Aug. 7.

Sony Pictures’ drive-in movies will screen on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights and the outdoor theater will host around 75 cars. The price of admission will be $30 per car, and tickets will be bought via Atom Tickets.

Other Sony Pictures titles to screen outdoors on the studio lot include Baby Driver, Jumanji: The Next Level, Don’t Breathe, Bloodshot and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

a boy and a girl looking at the camera: Thanks to nationwide movie theater shutdowns amid the coronavirus pandemic, Hollywood's film release schedule is rapidly changing. There are several major movies that have skipped theaters altogether and instead hit on-demand and streaming services, but there have also been dozens of high-profile pictures which have simply delayed their release plans for a later date when, hopefully, theaters will be safely reopened. To keep track of all of the studios' major delays, we've assembled this look at all of the movies that have had their release dates pushed back, including sequels like F9: Fast and Furious 9, Mission: Impossible 7, The Matrix 4, and Wonder Woman 1984; the latest James Bond movie No Time to Die and reboots of the CandyMan and Saw franchises; as well as Disney's pictures like the live-action Mulan movie and the as-yet-untitled new Star Wars trilogy movies.
