Walmart Drive-In Movies Are Coming To East Texas!
Wal-Mart is my go-to for dang near everything. From groceries, to toiletries, to wine, to clothes, Wally World got well. What if I told you that we can now add drive-in movie to that list. The multinational retailer corporation made an announcement that 160 supercenter store locations were going to start hosting 'pop up' drive-in movies. Because I'm always in East Texas, I was happy to see some East Texas locations on the list.
The movies will be programmed by the Tribeca Drive-In team, with the series expected to start in August and running through October. In addition, the 320 family-friendly showings are expected to include special appearances from filmmakers and celebrities.
Below is a list of the featured movies coming (Subject To Change and Vary By Location)
SPIDER-MAN: INTO THE SPIDER-VERSE
THE WIZARD OF OZ
ET THE EXTRA-TERRESTRIAL
FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS
Because I'm in East Texas often, I plan to hit up one of the following locations to see what this whole Wally World drive-in movie experience is like.
