To commemorate National Park & Recreation Month, the Loudoun County Department of Parks, Recreation and Community Services has scheduled three pop-up, drive-in movies to be shown at Segra Field in Leesburg on July 17, 24 and 31.
In a Wednesday night announcement, PRCS Director Steve Torpy said the department has had to come up with “new ways to create a spirit of community for Loudoun residents” as Virginia progresses through phases of reopening amid the COVID-19 health crisis.
“These pop-up movie events are just the thing to bring all ages out for some safe fun and relaxation during these challenging times,” Torpy said.
Cars will alternate parking spaces during the events, and attendees must maintain physical distancing of 10 feet or more at all times, according to the PRCS website. When attendees cannot properly distance themselves from others, they must wear face coverings.
County officials will announce the first movie title and begin selling tickets Monday. Tickets will cost $20 per car, must be purchased in advance online, and will be available until 7 p.m. on the day of the event or until they are sold out.
Gates will open for each showing at 8 p.m. at the Segra parking lot at 42095 Loudoun United Drive in Leesburg. More information is available at loudoun.gov/driveinmovies or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
