For movie lovers who are reticent to go back into movie theaters during the COVID-19 crisis, Michael B. Jordan has an easy remedy.

The “Just Mercy” actor and producer teamed up with Amazon Studios to give families a fun new way to celebrate the summer movie experience.

Jordan’s Outlier Society, in conjunction with Amazon Studios, is launching the summer-long “A Night at the Drive-In” experience. The initiative not only allows families to enjoy a blockbuster double-feature while socially distancing in their own vehicles, it will also feature a collection of racially diverse films.

The “Black Panther” heartthrob handpicked every movie that will play during his summer movie series, from romantic comedies to thrillers, to ensure there’s something for everyone to enjoy – no matter their age, race or gender.

“Crazy Rich Asians,” “Hook,” “Do The Right Thing,” “Coming to America,” “Get Out” and “Creed,” which he starred in, are a few of the films Jordan personally curated.

“With this drive-in summer series, I hope that friends and families are able to not only enjoy, but to learn and grow,” he said in a statement. “Now more than ever, amplifying black and brown stories means engaging culture to speak to hearts and minds about the world we live in.”

Each double-feature will celebrate a theme, such as "movies to inspire your inner child" and "movies to make you laugh."

Besides enjoying free movies, attendees will also enjoy complimentary snacks and refreshments provided by black and brown-owned businesses Path Water, Pipcorn Popcorn and Partake Cookies.

“A Night at the Drive-In” kicks off July 1 and will air double features every other week through Aug. 26.
