Capital One Center to Host Drive-In Movies to Benefit Local Nonprofit

Drive-in movies are coming to Tysons outside Capital One for four weeks this summer.

While the movies are free, Capital One Center is encouraging moviegoers to make a $25 donation to Second Story, a local nonprofit that helps people seeking food, shelter and emergency support. People can also text “MOVIES” to 50155 to make a donation.

Here is the line-up:

  • Saturday, July 11: “How to Train Your Dragon”
  • Sunday, July 12: “Pitch Perfect”
  • Saturday, July 18: “Men in Black”
  • Sunday, July 19: “Grease”
  • Saturday, July 25: “Shrek”
  • Sunday, July 26: “A League of Their Own”
  • Saturday, Aug. 1: “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”
  • Sunday, Aug. 2: “Footloose”

The movies will take place at the McLean Metro lot (1820 Dolley Madison Blvd) from 7-11:30 p.m.

Moviegoers are asked to register in advance due to limited space. People will be able to get food at the movies from Curbside Kitchen.

In addition to following and enforcing CDC guidelines, our event guidelines are approved by local county officials. No smoking, alcohol and drugs are permitted.

Parking has a limited capacity to ensure proper distance between cars, and guests must stay in their vehicles (except for bathroom usage). Restrooms and hand-washing stations will be provided and sanitized consistently throughout the event.

Chris Green is one of the DMV’s finest fitness instructors. A Lululemon and South Block ambassador, he is a coach and mentor to so many. He embodies grace, positivity and motivation in ways that no one else can. If we could all learn a thing or two from him, the world would be a much better place. He does so much for others, and does so with a smile on his face 99% of the time.

He recently ruptured his Achilles and has an incredibly long and tough journey ahead. As if COVID hadn’t impacted fitness professionals enough, throw this in the mix and it’s a double, even triple whammy. CG is no longer able to work and do what he loves for the time being because of this and we’d love your support.
