The Press Release:
Tribeca Enterprises, in partnership with DoorDash and Rémy Martin, announced the return of the Tribeca Drive-In series, combining the power of the movies with the majesty of the Rose Bowl Stadium. Featuring an exciting slate of new and classic films, the limited-engagement series will provide audiences with an memorable experience that’s sure to captivate audiences of all ages. The Tribeca Drive-In screening events, which will be the only drive-in experience coming to the Los Angeles area, will take place on the weekends between July 28-August 26, 2021 at the Rose Bowl Stadium in Pasadena, CA.
A signature series for Tribeca, drive-ins have been a part of the festival’s programming since its inception 20 years ago. Tapping into the nostalgia of the traditional drive-in experience, this year’s schedule will feature a robust lineup of films including: 2021 Tribeca Festival encore screenings, classic films, family matinees, short films, plus special sneak preview of a new film yet to hit theaters! Beginning today, audiences can purchase tickets at TribecaFilm.com.
“The Tribeca Drive-In program has always been a beloved staple of the Tribeca Festival and after last year’s wildly enthusiastic reception, we’re thrilled to return to the iconic Rose Bowl,” said Jane Rosenthal, Tribeca Enterprises and the Tribeca Festival Co-Founder & CEO. “Since its beginnings, this wonderful series has shown a unique ability to transport audiences to those magical summers when movies were experienced outdoors and on the big screen.”
The opening weekend will feature screenings of acclaimed films celebrating milestone anniversaries including the 20th anniversary of The Royal Tenenbaums and the 25th anniversary of Fargo. These anniversaries were also commemorated at this year’s Tribeca Festival, and those attending The Royal Tenenbaums screening will have the opportunity to see footage of a cast reunion conversation that took place at the Festival.
The series will also spotlight the illustrious career of the late Robin Williams with some of his most memorable films including Hook and Good Will Hunting for which he earned the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor in 1998.
Families can enjoy several films including The Princess Diaries, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary, and Moana, celebrating its 5th anniversary.
Audiences can also enjoy a special preview of Amazon Prime Video’s Everybody’s Talking About Jamie ahead of the film’s official premieres, mark the end of the 2021 Olympics with Go Big, a collection of short films that highlight athletic risks, rewards, and resilience, and celebrate the final weekend of the series with a collection of films that capture the power of music.

Piercing Ken Thoughts: As we are here on the other coast I won’t add to much to the mix outside of saying that this is a wonderful announcement that is stockpiled with some amazing films. This is the kind of stuff that brings people back together and after the last year or so that we’ve had as a society I think this is just what the doctor ordered. Now I should add that the general public with interest in attending should keep themselves up to date on any Covid-19 precautions that will very likely be in place based on the rising cases of this damned virus. I still think we have a storm to ride out but that is just me. Chime in below and let me know what you think of this news and please keep safe out there. See you next time.
