Walmart announces free movie theater locations and dates


Walmart has released locations across the country where store parking lots will be converted to drive-in theaters.

The retailer will show a selection of films from the end of the month in partnership with Tribeca Enterprises, as the coronavirus pandemic continues to force audiences to socially distance themselves.

The first screenings start on August 14 and will continue until October 21. The company says 160 Walmart stores are participating in the pop-up event.

Locations in Tampa, Wesley Chapel, Bradenton, Pinellas Park and Lakeland are included in the list. Other Florida locations include Mulberry, Spring Hill, Winter Haven, Inverness, Miami, Pembroke Pines, and Avon Park. You can see the full list and schedule by clicking here.

Movies that will be released include recent hits such as Black Panther, Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse, and Wonder Woman, as well as older favorites like The Wizard of Oz, Space Jam, ET, and Ghostbusters.

While many traditional cinemas remain closed across the country, drive-ins have seen a resurgence in popularity.

Walmart drive-ins will also offer in-car food and beverage service.

The company said the family events will feature blockbuster films as well as special appearances by filmmakers and celebrities.

All films will start at 7:30 p.m. and no late entry will be allowed. Tickets are free but must be requested in advance and will not be available at the entrance. Customers will have to stay in their vehicle.
