Sick of not being able to go to the movies? Well, Walmart and the Tribeca Film Festival are teaming up to turn the retail giant’s parking lots in 160 locations across the country into drive-in movie theaters this August through October.
The movies will be programmed by the Tribeca team and some showings will include special appearances from filmmakers and celebrities. Concessions will be delivered to customer vehicles, or you can pick up picnic items curbside before the movie.
“Drive-Ins have been a signature program for Tribeca since we started the Tribeca Film Festival 19 years ago after 9/11,” said 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.”
