Throughout the years, Tysons Corner Center has become known as a central hub for events in the Tysons area. Even in a year like no other, Tysons Corner Center wanted to engage the community with a series of socially distant events that were fun for the whole family while maintaining a focus on the health and wellness of its guests and still finding ways to give back. Thus, Tysons Corner Center launched its Drive-In Movie series, the last of which wrapped up with a holiday classic earlier this month. Similar to its drive-in series early this year, along with other drive-in events at The Boro and Capital One Center, Tysons Corner Centers holiday-themed drive-in was a hit from the start!
From car rooftops or hanging out of hatchbacks, socially distanced guests took in fun-filled movie classics like “The Sandlot,” “Aladdin,” “Mrs. Doubtfire,” “Home Alone,” and “Elf.” Each movie featured live music from local acts, trivia, and a variety of food and beverage options from Subway, Cinnabon, Doughnuttery, Panda Express, Kung Fu Tea, Nordstrom, Seasons 52, and Coastal Flats to name a few. Guests lucky enough to win VIP tickets through the center’s radio promotions received front row spots and a to-go meal of their choosing from one of Tysons Corner Center’s 40+ eateries.
True to the spirit of giving back during the holiday season, all proceeds from the five sold-out events were donated to Tysons Corner Center’s charitable partners, including: Second Story, the local organization helping vulnerable populations in the Tysons community, and Food for Others, another great local nonprofit providing food to neighbors in need.
Tysons Corner Center looks forward to a time when more traditional events can be held, but will continue to find other opportunities to put on engaging, socially distant community events in the meantime.
