A Pop-Up Drive-In Is Coming to the Rose Bowl in July

Local movie theaters are gearing up to reopen in July, but if breathing other people’s air doesn’t appeal just yet, a car-bound viewing experience might be in order.

Jane Rosenthal and Robert DeNiro’s Tribeca Film is hosting pop-up drive-ins in New York, Texas, and at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena. The Rose Bowl schedule runs from July 2 through 26 and is stacked with classic movies (Jaws, The Goonies), kids movies (Spy Kids, Inside Out), new indies (Andy Samberg’s Palm Springs), new documentaries (Tangled Roots), and even stand-up comedy nights.

Pop-up drive-ins have gained popularity in recent years, like San Fernando Valley booster organization My Valley Pass’s Summer Drive-In Nights in Lake Balboa Park and the pop-up on the top floor of the Grove’s parking facility. A unique thing about the Tribeca pop-up? Movies screen both at night and during the day, as early as 12:30 in the afternoon. The site’s FAQ section explains that they’ll use “bright, high resolution LED screens, which are visible during daylight hours.”

The screenings cost $26 per carload, and the full schedule is available here.

In the meantime, the L.A. area’s established drive-ins—Paramount Drive-In in Paramount, Vineland Drive-In in Industry, and the farther flung Mission Tiki Drive-In in Montclair—are all open for business.
