Tampa Bay area Walmarts will soon convert their parking lots into contact-free drive-in movie theaters beginning next week.

For the touring drive-ins, the retailer partnered with Tribeca Enterprises, the New York City media company behind the Tribeca Film Festival. In total, 160 Walmart locations are participating in the parking lot transformations. 

The participating Tampa Walmart Supercenter is located at 19910 Bruce B Downs Blvd.

The other locations include: Spring Hill, 1485 Commercial Way; Wesley Chapel, 28500 FL-54; Bradenton, 6225 E and Pinellas Park, 8001 US Hwy 19 N. 

The films will be family-friendly blockbusters and recent favorites including “Wonder Woman,” “The Wizard of Oz,” “Space Jam,” “Ghostbusters,” “Black Panther,” and many more.

The free pop-up drive-ins require tickets be reserved in advance and car-side food service will be available. To ensure safety for patrons, parking spaces will be socially distanced.
