Beginning in August, the retailer is converting 160 of its US store parking lots into drive-in movie theaters. As the pandemic continues, drive-in theaters have been making a comeback as a safe alternative to the traditional movie theatersthat remain closed in much of the country.
Walmart () is partnering with Tribeca Enterprises, the Robert De Niro-backed media company, to program the films. Locations and movie titles haven’t yet been announced, but they will be revealed later on a special website.The event will run through October and encompass more than 300 showings.
Rumors suggest they will be showing classics such as Jaws, E.T., Gremlins, and more.
