Films are being shown each weekend, Thursday through Sunday, through August 2nd, and are a combination of family favorites and new releases from independent filmmakers, such as would be shown at the Tribeca Film Festival.
The series kicks off this weekend with Palm Springs, a new comedy starring Andy Samberg and Cristin Milioti, which will be released on Hulu.
In addition to Orchard Beach, where screenings are FREE, the Tribeca Drive-in also is at Nickerson Beach in Nassau County, where the price is $26 per vehicle.
Scheduled films include Love and Basketball at Orchard Beach and Back to the Future at Nickerson Beach.
The Tribeca Drive-in is by the Tribeca Film Festival folk, which we all know was started by Tribeca resident Robert di Niro in the days after 9/11 to help generate business back downtown.
The summer film series also is at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas and the Rose Bowl Stadium in Pasadena, California.
The Tribeca Film Festival people are hoping to add more drive-in locations soon.
Drive-ins are experiencing a revival throughout the USA.
Reservations are required. There is no driving in to the drive-in without a reservation.
