People in the Tysons area now have an option to leave their homes to watch movies this summer.
The Boro announced yesterday on Facebook that drive-in movies will be available for four weeks, starting this Friday.
“A section of Boro Place will be pedestrian-only with extended restaurant outdoor seating, as well as live entertainment from 7-8 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays,” the Facebook post said.
This weekend, the drive-in series will screen “Dreamgirls” on Friday (June 19), followed by “Grease” on Saturday. Upcoming movies haven’t been announced yet for the following dates:
- Thursday, June 25
- Friday, June 26
- Saturday, June 27
- Thursday, July 2
- Friday, July 3
- Thursday, July 9
- Friday, July 10
- Saturday, July 11
People are encouraged to reserve tickets because space is limited and on a first-come, first-serve basis. Tickets cost $20 for a vehicle or non-vehicle space for up to four people. People can bring blankets and chairs.
The gates will open at 7 p.m. ahead of the 8:30 p.m. showing time, according to The Boro. Restrooms will be available at the site.
“We ask you to stay in your vehicle for the duration of the event, unless needing to access the restrooms or Boro Place,” according to the Facebook event page.
ShowPlace ICON in Tysons is sponsoring the films, while DC Fray & District Fray Magazine are handling production, according to the post.
