Walmart Drive-In Movies are Coming to Colorado
Walmart is looking to entertain us next month.
It's safe to say that you can get just about anything at Walmart. Shop home decor and clothing while grabbing groceries for the week and also having your tires rotated. It's the ultimate one-stop shop. Just going to Walmart can be a form of entertainment because you never know what you'll find as you walk around the store.
And now the parking lot is turning into a theater.
With theaters' hands still hovering over the re-open button, many of us are craving some entertainment. I mean, streaming is great, but get me out of the house please. I need a good date night back in my weekly repertoire.
Walmart recently announced that they will be using their massive parking lots at various Supercenters as drive-in theaters. It's right on par with 2020 as many old drive-in theaters have seen new life during the pandemic with movies and live music. Walmart's version will be a pop-up event that is touring much of the country.
We'll see showings on these dates at the following locations:
9/11 Grand Junction
9/12 Grand Junction
9/18 Pueblo West
9/19 Pueblo West
Obviously there are more Walmart locations in our state than what's listed above. Although they will not be doing a pop-ups at every location, I have to believe that if this is successful, they will throw more money at it and continue the fun in more locations. At this time, they've selected 160 locations.
Each event is free, but tickets will need to be requested/reserved in advance. No tickets will be available at the gate. Cars can carry as many people as seatbelts allow and must have FM radio for audio. Masks will also be required when you're outside of your vehicle.
Walmart plans on showing the following films:
Spider-Man Into the Spider-Verse
The Wizard of Oz
E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial
Friday Night Lights
