If you have been waiting for the newest movie releases—even some of 2020’s most anticipated—you’re going to have to wait a bit longer.
No Time to Die, the newest addition to the James Bond lineup was originally scheduled for release in April, and has been pushed back to November. Wonder Woman 1984, with several scenes filmed in the DMV, has also been pushed back to later this year. But there’s good news: You can catch classics in a safe, local way this summer.
Drive-in movie theaters are popping up across the region in the upcoming weeks. Even if you’re not sitting in your favorite theater seat with a bucket of popcorn, here’s how you can still get your flick fix this season.
Capital One Center
For four weeks this summer, local residents can head to the McLean Metro to catch family-friendly movies, and offer support to Second Story, a local nonprofit that offers support to homeless youth, teens in crisis and young mothers. Attendance is free (and space is limited), but the Capital One Center is encouraging attendees to make a $25 donation to the organization. Reserve your tickets here, and catch a movie from Saturday, July 11 to Sunday, Aug. 2 such as How to Train Your Dragon and Men in Black. // 1820 Dolley Madison Blvd., Tysons
Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays in the DMV just got better. The Boro is hosting drive-in movies when the sun goes down on summer nights, such as Grease, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone and more. Be sure to reserve your tickets here since space is limited, and catch a movie up until Monday, July 20. Plus, you don’t have to bring a car. Bring up to four people, some chairs and a blanket, and you’re good to go! // 8400 Westpark Drive, McLean; $20 per vehicle
The Drive-In at Mosaic
You haven’t been able to catch a movie at the Angelika Film Center yet this summer, but you can still drive in for two days this summer to watch Toy Story 4 and Jurassic Park. The two family friendly classics will be shown on Friday, July 24, with one additional date in August with a film yet to be announced. All watchers will be located on the top level of the market garage, across from Mom’s Organic Market and Hyatt House, and entry costs $28 per vehicle. // Market Garage: 8295 Glass Alley, Fairfax; $28 per vehicle
