CELEBS TO MAKE A SPECIAL APPEARANCE
Well, this is kind of fun! CNN reported that Walmart is partnering with Tribeca Enterprises, the media company backed by Robert De Niro, to launch the new drive-in initiative. It’s an extension of Tribeca’s existing drive-in program, which has announced events in cities such as Los Angeles, New York and Seattle, TechCrunch reported. These Walmart screenings, which will include more than 300 events, are currently scheduled for August through October.
According to Walmart’s recent tweet, the drive-in program will include car-side drink and beverage service.
“This family-friendly night will include hit movies, special appearances from filmmakers and celebrities, and concessions delivered right to customer vehicles,” Walmart said in a press release.
Locations to be announced. Stay tuned. You never know, maybe there will be one in west suburban Chicagoland. We shall see.
