SAN ANTONIO – Evo Entertainment is offering to host drive-in graduation ceremonies for free.

The Texas movie theater chain can project live or recorded footage onto screens and broadcast sound directly to FM radios for all vehicles who attend drive-in ceremonies.

“Every graduate deserves a chance to celebrate their hard work and accomplishments with loved ones, however, as COVID-19 presses pause on gatherings, schools around the country have had to make the difficult choice to postpone or out-right cancel commencement ceremonies for their graduates,” officials said on the EVO website.

High schools, colleges and universities across the U.S. have had to postpone or outright cancel in-person graduation ceremonies for the 2020 school year amid the coronavirus pandemic.
