The drive-in movie revival continues, and now SeaWorld's getting in on the socially distanced action.

SeaWorld on Tuesday announced "Flicks & Fireworks," a weekend's worth of drive-in movies set to take place in their parking lot in just a few days.

Pop-up drive-in movie events are having a moment now locally, with both the Epic Theaters and Enzian/Bungalower staging them over the last few months.

Each night, there will be a few local food trucks (TBA), fireworks at 9 p.m. and then a movie following that. The three movies showing this weekend are Shark’s Tale, A Dog’s Purpose and the 1984 version of The Karate Kid.

Fireworks & Flicks runs July 10-12. Tickets can be purchased here. Cost is $50 per vehicle.
