Black-Owned Broccoli City Creates Pop-Up Drive-In Movie Experience For D.C.
With movie theaters pretty much shutting down due to the pandemic, an oldie but goodie has begun to resurface. Drive-in movie theaters are now gaining an influx of business with people wanting to see movies, while also being able to safely social distance.
The team from Broccoli City, along with Events DC, decided to step in and create a cool experience for those in and around the Washington, D.C. area. Earlier this month they introduced Park Up DC, a drive-in summer movie series.
“We know DC is the capital of creativity, and the Park Up DC series is certainly a creative use of an otherwise underused plot of land,” D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser said in a statement. “As we continue working together to stop the spread of the virus and keep our community healthy, this series is reimaging how we come together for safe, fun, and family-friendly events.”
The experience takes place at the RFK Stadium Campus. Movies are shown on a 45-foot HD LED Digital screen, and sound can be picked up from your car’s FM radio. There is also a snack bar on the premises.
Entry is $29 per vehicle and multiple movies are shown each night, including family-friendly options. For more info, or to purchase tickets you can visit the website: www.parkupdc.com.
