Pop-up drive-in movie theater coming to Loudoun

Films will be shown on a large screen in the Segra Field parking lot near Leesburg.

Loudoun County is doing something truly fun during this time of social distancing — it’s launching a series of pop-up drive-in movies that will be shown on a giant screen at Segra Field near Leesburg.

The three dates for the drive-in movies will be July 17, 24 and 31. All three dates are Friday nights. Movie titles haven’t been announced yet and will be revealed on a rolling basis. The first feature film scheduled for July 17 should be announced this Monday, July 6 and tickets will go on sale on that date. $20 per car is the fee.

According to a graphic released by the county, it appears cars will enter from Crosstrail Boulevard and the screen will be set up between the two adjacent parking lots on the north side of Segra Field. Movie-goers will park on the side facing the screen while portable restrooms will be set up behind the screen in the other parking lot. Segra Field is located at 42095 Loudoun United Drive.

The county made the announcement Wednesday evening. The movies are being put on by the Loudoun County Department of Parks, Recreation and Community Services. “As we move through Virginia’s reopening phases, we continue to look for new ways to create a spirit of community for Loudoun residents,” Steve Torpy, PRCS Director, said in a statement. “These popup movie events are just the thing to bring all ages out for some safe fun and relaxation during these challenging times.”

    Wish there was a permanent drive in theater near the Sterling/Ashburn area. We would go all the time!

    So you can’t bring your pet. You have to bring your own food. You have to take your trash with you. You must wear a face mask when not in your vehicle. You assume direct responsibility for any exposure to Covid-19. If you have to use the bathroom, but lines are too long, you’ll potentially be sent back to your car. What exactly is the draw to this versus watching a movie in the comfort of your own home?

    A permanent drive in would be great. i’m sure it would be sold out every night. Surprise the local theaters don’t see this opportunity.
