Some of the films that will be shown include Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse, Get Out, Creed, Black Panther, Hook, Do The Right Thing, Coming To America, Crazy Rich Asians, and more.
Michael B. Jordan Picked Some Good Films
"Amazon Studios and Michael B. Jordan's Outlier Society are launching "A Night at the Drive-In", a nationwide summer screening series featuring a wide selection of films celebrating multi-cultural voices in cinema. In an effort to evoke the nostalgic joy of a summer evening at the drive-in with family and friends, attendance will be at no cost to local communities. Starting Wednesday, July 1, Amazon Studios will host double-features curated by Michael B. Jordan with help from his newly formed marketing arm 8788 and Outlier Society, every other week through the end of August."
"With this drive-in summer series, I hope that friends and families are able to not only enjoy, but to learn and grow," said Michael B. Jordan, Principal of Outlier Society. "Now more than ever, amplifying Black and Brown stories means engaging culture to speak to hearts and minds about the world we live in. As we use this opportunity to reimagine community and proximity, I am excited that these films will be shared and celebrated all across the country."
What a great idea. Not only is it a great opportunity to see some great films, but an awesome event for people to attend in the community. For a list of all of the drive-ins participating, see below.
