NELIGH, NE - SEPTEMBER 28: Dillon Smith gets popcorn for customers in the concession stand at the TK/Starlite Drive-In Theater on September 28, 2013 in Neligh, Nebraska. The theater, which opened in 1952, is one of only two drive-in theaters left in Nebraska, a state that once had almost 50. At the peak of their popularity in the late 1950s there were between 4 and 5 thousand drive-in theaters in the United States, there are now only about 350. As movie studios begin to phase out distribution of 35mm film prints in favor of digital media, the high cost drive-in theaters face when switching to a digital projection system is expected to force more of these theaters to close. The TK/ Starlite installed a digital projector earlier this year. (Photo by Scott Olson/Getty Images)

We’re all looking for ways to entertain ourselves safely while in quarantine. And while regular movie theaters are still closed, we’ve seen a resurgence in drive in movie theaters across America due to social distancing becoming the new norm.

While we don’t have too many drive-ins close to Charlotte, there is an opportunity this weekend to catch movies at the “drive-in.”

Lowes Home Improvement in Pineville, at 10625 McMullen Creek Parkway, is hosting 2 drive-in movies on Saturday, and Sunday night this weekend.

Not only is this an awesome way to spend time with the family and safely get out of the house, but it’s for a good cause. It is free to attend but they are asking for donations which will go to help local women-owned and minority-owned businesses. With any donation you make, Lowe’s will match it two-to-one, up to $50,000, to help small businesses in Charlotte impacted by the pandemic.

Here’s the movie schedule:

  • Saturday, July 18th 9pm – The Secret Life Of Pets

  • Sunday, July 19th 9pm – The Pursuit of Happyness
