Drive in Movie Theaters Near Me

Where are the movies playing at the drive-in throughout the United States?

Drive-in movie theaters are a big part of United States history. During the 1950s and 1960s, Americans would have a date night or pack the kids into the station wagons and go see a movie.

According to Smithsonian Magazine, in the heyday of drive-ins in the 1950s, there were over 4,000 in the United States. Today only 310 are left and more are closing every year.

They were affordable, most had playgrounds and snack bars. There was nothing better than watching a first-run movie outside on the big screen.

Audio for the movie was on a pole that you parked next to and it hung on your car window or door.

Growing up I have many happy memories of going to the drive-in. As a kid, my parents took me to Valley Stream Drive-in and Bridgehampton Drive-in on Long Island all the time. It was great, we got to play on the playground for hours waiting for the movie to start. Then we got into our PJs and watched the movie. I bet lots of you have the same memories I have.

Epic Places to Visit in USA that you didn’t know existed

There are so many epic places to visit in the USA that most don’t even know exist. We all know about the famous locations and tourist spots that are advertised all over but what about the off the beaten path locations in this beautiful country.

We all love to find out of the way, less crowded places to spend some quality time with our loved ones. In addition, it would be great to find places to visit that are less crowded.

Unfortunately, this doesn’t happen too often but it will never happen in places like the Grand Canyon because after all who doesn’t want to visit the Grand Canyon. Although, I’m differently not saying that you shouldn’t go there are times that we just want to go somewhere not as crowded and still have a great vacation.
