Fairfax County has a few and far away drive-in theaters, but those still operating have gained new popularity amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Tysons, Virginia, has also just got one though it’s just a pop-up. Big mixed-use development The Boro is hosting weekend summer drive-in movies at Tysons. It is sponsored by ShowPlace ICON Theater, which is part of the development but remains closed to moviegoers along with DC Fray.
According to wtop.com, “The pop-up drive-in has been set up in the parking lot of the former National Automobile Dealers Association’s headquarters building, at 8400 Westpark Drive, and the shows will run through at least July 11. Admission is $20 per vehicle, and chairs or blankets are permitted. Movies start at dusk, roughly 8:30 p.m. Boro Place, the restaurant and retail area at The Boro, is temporarily closed to traffic on weekends, and is a pedestrian-only zone for outdoor seating at the restaurants.”
As per wtop.com, “The movies are family friendly titles, such as “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone,” “Back to the Future” and “Jurassic Park.” Movie nights are Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, with weekend schedules of what’s showing online. The District is considering a drive-in movie concept for RFK Memorial Stadium, according to the Washington Business Journal.”
