Walmart is going to start transforming some of their parking lots into drive-in-theaters since we can no longer safely go to the cinema. They will be adapting 160 of their lots nationwide into drive-ins. They are aiming to have them open to the public between August and October and will have “all the essentials” for a good drive in experience.
This will include curbside pickup for snacks and food while you watch your film. They are working with Tribeca Enterprises to make a safe space for families to stay socially distant while still being able to enjoy other late summer activities. This family-friendly night will include hit movies, special appearances from filmmakers and celebrities and concessions delivered right to customer vehicles. They will be showing a total of 320 movies during this special event.
“Drive-Ins have been a signature program for Tribeca since we started the Tribeca Film Festival 19 years ago after 9/11,” says Jane Rosenthal, CEO and Co-Founder of Tribeca Enterprises and Tribeca Film Festival.
“But now, the Tribeca Drive-In is much more than a fun, retro way to see movies — it’s one of the safest ways for communities to gather. We are thrilled to partner with Walmart to bring more people together around the shared cinematic experiences that Tribeca is known for.”
They have started the drive in experience already but they will not be listing the Walmart screenings until later on. Right now they are stationed in Arlington, Texas, Pasadena, California, Nassau County, New York and Orchard Beach in the Bronx, New York. The full schedule and tickets can be found at TribecaFilm.com.
