TRI-CITIES, Wash. — Parks and recreation departments in Pasco, Kennewick and Richland have announced the dates for the first-ever Tri-Cities Carpool Cinema.

Families are invited to watch good old-fashioned drive-in movies in all three cities on an 11′ by 19′ LED board with audio sent directly to their car radios, city officials say.

Each showing is $15 per carload and includes a large bag of pre-packaged popcorn. Tickets need to be pre-purchased online.

Carloads must be of the same household, and families are encouraged to bring additional drinks and snacks. No RVs or trailers are allowed.

Restrooms will be available but at a limited capacity.

City officials say this type of event has been approved by the Gov. Inslee’s office and Benton-Franklin Health District.
