BENTONVILLE, Ark. -- Walmart is converting dozens of its store parking lots in the US into drive-in movie theaters.
The retailer announced partnering with Tribeca Enterprises to show a selection of films beginning in August, as the coronavirus pandemic continues to force the public to socially distance.
With many traditional movie theaters remaining closed across the country, drive-ins have seen a resurgence in popularity.
The Walmart drive-in theaters will run through October, and will offer car-side food and drink service as well.
The company said the family-friendly events will showcase hit movies along with special appearances from filmmakers and celebrities.
Locations and a list of films to be shown have not yet been released.
