We can all watch movies almost anywhere and anytime, thanks to our ubiquitous mobile devices, but nothing beats the old-school drive-in movie. Here are four places in North America where you can still see a drive-in movie.

1. Georgetown Drive-In, Georgetown, Indiana

One of the great things about drive-ins is that they inspire loyalty in a way that few indoor, chain-brand cinemas do. Check out Georgetown’s Facebook and Yelp pages, where fans and followers are effusively enthusiastic about the drive-in; comments like “I love this drive in!!!”; “Thanks for keeping this place going!”; “Best drive-in ever!” are characteristic of the interactions and feedback this drive-in receives. Clearly, there’s lots of local nostalgia for memories made here; this season, it was the site of vow renewals for a couple who had been married for 30 years.

Georgetown Drive-In features two screens, each of which shows two movies per night. Movies are as cheap as $5 if you print a coupon from Georgetown’s Facebook page. Like any good drive-in, this one has a concession stand, and it specializes in deep-fried velvet Twinkies.

    We have not one, but two drive-in theaters here in the mid-Hudson Valley of NY. We go to the Overlook Drive-in in Poughkeepsie, or the Hyde Park Drive-in. GREAT family outing!

    The Auburn-Garrett Drive-In just outside Garrett, IN (and near Auburn) on St. Rd. 8 just past the intersection with Rd. 327. Lots of families go here. The kids all really look forward to it.

    You may be down to 16 or fewer. The Starlite in Sterling, Colorado, closed permanently just a few weeks ago, one of many victims of the upcoming digital projection requirement.
