Times are pretty crazy right now; why not have a taste of nostalgia for when there were no pandemics and drive-in movies were still a thing? Tribeca Enterprises today announced a partnership with IMAX and AT&T to unveil the TRIBECA DRIVE-IN, an all-new drive-in entertainment series that will take place this summer at drive-in theaters and other exclusive venues nationwide.
The limited engagement series will provide families with a safe, comfortable entertainment experience in cities and towns across the country, as the nation takes steps to emerge from Coronavirus lockdowns. The series will roll out to markets across the country throughout the summer, and will feature a curated selection of new, classic, and independent films, as well as special music and sports events. For each Drive-In event, Tribeca will work with local vendors to support small businesses and make the experience truly unique to each community.
“It’s in our DNA to bring people together through the arts, showing strength and resiliency when the world needs it the most,” says Jane Rosenthal, Tribeca Enterprises and Tribeca Film Festival Co-Founder and CEO.
“We’re excited to give people something to look forward to this summer and reinvent a classic moviegoing experience for communities to enjoy together safely,” added Tribeca Enterprises and Tribeca Film Festival Co-Founder Robert De Niro.
IMAX will bring its unique expertise by utilizing its exclusive Digital Re-Mastering process to enhance the image and sound of all Tribeca Drive-In presentations, providing technological support and equipment to optimize its venues and screens, and collaborating with Tribeca Enterprises to curate the program, drawing from its rich library of IMAX content.
The Tribeca Drive-In will kick off on Thursday, June 25, and will run throughout the summer in cities across the country. Additional locations and programming details will be announced in the coming weeks. For the latest updates, please visit the Tribeca Film website.
