Walmart is lifting the curtain on plans for the Walmart Drive-In, a drive-in movie theater experience, which is rolling into 160 Walmart stores across the country beginning this month, created in partnership with the Tribeca Film Festival.

Available for free to Walmart customers, the Walmart Drive-In will transform Walmart parking lots into outdoor cinemas from August 14 through October 21 with 320 showings of hit movies. Starting today at 5:00 p.m. ET, families can visit TheWalmartDriveIn.com to discover dates, store locations and the movies for each stop of the movie tour.

“We recognize the challenges our customers and their families have faced over the last few months, and we wanted to create an experience where they could come together safely to create new memories,” said Janey Whiteside, Walmart’s chief customer officer.

“The Walmart Drive-in is one small way we’re supporting the communities we serve.”

The Walmart Drive-In promises families a fun, contact-free experience where they can watch popular films thoughtfully curated by the Tribeca Film Festival. Audiences will be welcomed back to the big screen to enjoy a wide range of films safely from their own vehicle, including:

Inspiring sports stories like Friday Night Lights, The Karate Kid and Space Jam.

Blockbuster franchises including Black Panther, Pokémon Detective Pikachu, The LEGO Batman Movie, Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse, Spy Kids, Teen Titans GO! To the Movies and Wonder Woman.

Nostalgic favorites including Back to the Future, Beetlejuice, The Goonies and The Wizard of Oz.

Inspiring true stories from Dolphin Tale to Selena.

And animated features every member of the family can enjoy like Cars, The Iron Giant, The LEGO Movie and Madagascar.

Ahead of each feature presentation, audiences will screen one of a number of short films, including Bilby, Bird Karma, Brooklyn Breeze, CROW: The Legend, Fire in Cardboard City, INVASION!, Looney Tunes’ Boo! Appetweet and Marooned.

During the tour, filmmakers and special guests will help Walmart celebrate bringing back the big screen to communities across the country.

Families will be also be treated to surprise virtual or in-person appearances from Peter Berg, Jennifer Garner, LeBron James and Chrissy Metz at select showings.
