Tribeca has drive-in dates

Pier 25 to be transformed May 8-10

The Tribeca Film Festival has teamed up with General Motors to present the Tribeca Drive-In.

A giant drive-in movie screen will be installed at Pier 25 in Hudson River Park for three outdoor evenings of film, May 8-10. First film will be selected through an online vote. Subsequent pics will be “Diner” and “Grease.”

Event is open to pedestrian traffic only, although GM will re-create the look of a classic drive-in with cars from the era. Screenings are free, but require a ticket for entrance. Site can accommodate an audience of 3,000.

“It emphasizes one of the festival’s main missions, that is a festival for everybody — from those deeply involved in the business of film to those who just love to watch a great movie,” said festival co-founder Jane Rosenthal.

Besides the Tribeca Drive-In, the Family Festival and the MTV Rock & Comedy Concert will be free events open to the public.
