While they’re unable to hold normal concerts and games with fans due to the coronavirus, the Miami Dolphins are getting creative with how they can use Hard Rock Stadium to entertain people while also practicing social distancing.
On Tuesday the Dolphins announced they were going to convert Hard Rock Stadium into an open-air and a drive-in theater that will be able to accommodate fans.
We are excited to announce an open-air and drive-in theater that will showcase classic @MiamiDolphins content, classic films, host commencement ceremonies and more.
These experiences will stay in accordance with social distance policies.

The global entertainment destination will now feature both an open-air and drive-in theater that will showcase select Miami Dolphins matchups from the team’s 54-year history, classic motion picture films, host commencement ceremonies and other events. The family friendly experiences will provide a unique environment while staying in accordance with social distance policies. The drive-in events will be held inside of Hard Rock Stadium and accommodate up to 230 cars, while the open-air theater can host small groups for an intimate viewing experience on the complex’s south plaza.
Here are the mockup pictures of Hard Rock Stadium being used as a drive-in theater.
Hard Rock Stadium CEO Tom Garfinkel explains his decision to open up the stadium.
“We’ve spent several weeks planning this to be able to provide people with a safe option to go out and enjoy movies, classic Dolphins content, concerts, and celebrate 2020 graduates,” said Miami Dolphins and Hard Rock Stadium Vice Chairman and CEO Tom Garfinkel “It’s a fundamental human need to physically experience and celebrate events and experiences together, and we’re trying to provide options for everyone where they can be safely socially distant and socially present at the same time.”
There’s no word on how much it’s going to cost to attend the drive-in at Hard Rock Stadium, but we’ll keep you updated once tickets go on sale.
