Will Walmart transform to a Drive In in Canada?

Westman shoppers are used to seeing camper trailers parked in our local Walmart parking lot, but that parking lot may get a bit more crowded if Canadian Walmart stores follow their US counterparts.  Coming soon to Walmart… a drive-in theater!  The retail giant announced it will be converting 160 of its US store parking lots into drive-in movie theaters in August. It runs through October and will have over 300 showings, but locations and movie titles haven't been shared just yet.  The company is partnering with Tribeca Enterprises to make it happen. Walmart says "This family-friendly night will include hit movies, special appearances from filmmakers and celebrities and concessions delivered right to customer vehicles.”  With people rediscovering drive-in’s this move makes sense.  Would you take your family to Walmart for a drive in movie?
