This July New Yorkers can enjoy movie outings safely and for free. Every Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday until August 2 the people that organize the Tribeca Film Festival are setting up an inflatable screen in Orchard Beach, Bronx, for film fans to pull up in their cars and watch movies while also social distancing.

All you need to do to join the fun is to go to the website and sign up for free tickets per car, with no limit on the number of people in each car. Some of the movies that will be shown include “Gloves Off”, “The Dark Knight”, and “Wonder Woman.”

Attendees are required to wear a mask when pulling into the drive-in and will be necessary whenever someone exits their vehicle.
