Walmart plans on hosting drive-in movie in parking lot

Any trip to Walmart is an adventure, but this year specifically, the retailer is doing something a little different to bring in the families.

Beginning in August, Walmart will convert 160 of its U.S. store parking lots into drive-in movie theaters. As the pandemic continues to disrupt life, drive-in theaters have been making a comeback as a safe alternative to traditional movie theaters.

The retailer is partnering with Tribeca Enterprises, a Robert De Niro-backed media company, to show the films. The event will run through October and Walmart plans on hosting more than 300 showings. Locations and movie titles have not yet been announced, but they will be revealed at a later time on a special website.


But going above and beyond for the event, Walmart shared in a statement that the “family-friendly night” will also feature “special appearances from filmmakers and celebrities” and that concessions like popcorn and soda will be “delivered right to customer vehicles.”

Make-shift theaters and old drive-in theater locations have been popping up all over the country as traditional theater operations have been halted for an indefinite amount of time. If you and your family are looking for a fun night out, then go for groceries and items, stay for the free movie, and maintain social distance.
