Kowloon’s Drive-In Movie Theater Will Debut Tomorrow Night

Kowloon has been a longtime favorite for those seeking Chinese food north of Boston. The management is trying new ideas to weather the coronavirus pandemic by opening up a Drive-In theater in the parking lot. The restaurant had been offering takeout and delivery while its dining room is closed, but tomorrow night everything changes.  The Saugus restaurant will transform its parking lot into a drive-in movie theater and carhop, an interactive experience that will kick off with a grand opening concert featuring The Platters.

Kowloon’s carhop and drive-in will include a tiki bar, along with an outdoor dining area has been set up with umbrella-covered tables, alongside a turf area where guests can bring their own blankets and lawn chairs. The drive-in theater section will feature a a 22-foot high, 40-foot wide movie screen.

Guests will all be able to order from Kowloon’s full menu, from egg rolls and salt and pepper shrimp to Singapore street noodles. Scorpion bowls, Mai Tais, and other cocktails will also be available.
“Never in my wildest dreams did we ever think this would happen,” Bob Wong, who owns the restaurant with his siblings, said in a press release last month. “We are adapting and will keep going.”

To kick off the action, Kowloon has  booked, The Platters, to perform live in concert at the restaurant on June 25 at 6 p.m.  Kowloons will have family movie nights and concerts to entertain the crowds throughout the summer.
