Broccoli City may not be able to have its usual music festival, but that’s not going to stop them from hosting events. Instead, the event and lifestyle brand will host drive-in movies at RFK Stadium this summer.
“We tried to push [Broccoli City Festival] back to October,” Broccoli City Founder Brandon McEachern said.
“Then from what we saw in the news and just what was happening in the world, we thought that it would be best for us to go ahead and just cancel the festival altogether and put our energy toward solution-based events that can be fun for the whole family,” he continued.
“Everybody can enjoy a movie. I don’t care what side of the political realm you’re on, how old you are, your race, color, creed, whatever the case may be, movies is always a good look,” he added.
The drive-in movie series will kick-off with comedies such as Dave Chappelle’s Block Party and Friday. Next week, they’ll shift to classic movies such as Love Jones.
Showtimes for each weekend are 7 p.m., 9 p.m., 11 p.m. and 11:30 p.m. Tickets are available at $29 for early-bird customers and $39 for general admission. To learn more about the series, visit their website.
