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.
