COVID-19 keeping all movie theaters shut down for a long period of time, Wal-Mart has announced plans to change their big parking lots into drive-in movie theaters in August.
Drive-in theaters are all the trend right now. People are loving them! You can watch a movie on a big screen in the convenience of your own car. There are no concerns about coming in contact with any other people.
Here’s the tweet that Wal-Mart sent out:
Starting in August at select Walmart stores, we’re partnering with @Tribeca and rolling out the red carpet for drive-in movie premieres, complete with car-side 🍿and 🥤service. Stay tuned for more details. See you at the movies! https://t.co/JfUPB6QK8C pic.twitter.com/t4Enk8aYzL

This is a very cool and smart idea and I was thinking why not all the big stores change their parking lots into drive-ins. They’ve certainly got the parking lot space to do it! It also opens up the opportunity for many people to enjoy the drive-in movie experience that doesn’t live near a proper drive-in theater.
There were no details given on what movies Wal-Mart is preparing to show at its drive-in theaters, but they’ve built a website that sets early August for their screenings.
Will you be attending one of these Wal-Mart drive-ins!?
