Pandemic entertainment: Drive-in revival continues to grow
Tribeca Enterprises and Walmart are teaming up to transform more than 150 parking lots across the country into drive-in movie theaters.
Even with easy chair access to all the world's entertainment, there's still nothing like the experience of a drive in movie way drived all the snacks. We got candy, we got popcorn and you think of like the quintessential American cinema experience. I kind of think of the drive in drive ins had their moment during the booming car culture of Postwar America, eventually taking a back seat to big, air conditioned multiplexes. But most of those indoor theaters are now closed due to health concerns, lighting the way for drive ins to steal the show people that that's Tribeca Enterprises, best known for its annual film festival, is helping facilitate the Renaissance. We've just been focusing on beloved American films, and they're doing it at beloved American places, with showings at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, the home of the Dallas Cowboys in Texas and the historic Rose Bowl in Southern California. Your front window. See beautiful mountains and the sunset and then at the back seat movies, and it's not totally stuck in the past. Instead of a projector set up, we have like a modern video screen that you can see in the daylight. That means shows could start before sundown so the kids aren't up too late. Snack situation has also improved order texts and then over there in August. TriBeCa Drive ins are expanding with shows in WalMart parking lots. Just another way. Social restrictions. Air forcing people to step back and look at the big picture. It does kind of reinforce, like a sense of normalcy during a time that isn't anything but Raphael Seth, NBC News.
