2. Stevie Rae’s South-Western Drive-In Theatre, Tilbury, Ontario

Unlike most drive-ins, Stevie Rae’s South Western Drive In Theatre is a new build—it just opened this summer. The owners wanted to revive drive-in movies for a generation that hadn’t experienced them. The current projectors were salvaged from a defunct drive-in in Windsor, but the screen and the drive-in itself are brand new. As its name suggests, this drive-in has a western theme, and the owners intend to expand operations to include a flea market and western swap meet.

Thursdays are the best time to catch a first-run movie at Stevie Rae’s, as a carload of moviegoers costs just $15.

  • Traci says:

    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!

  • pen says:

    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.

  • The heart of North America beats through towering forests, undulating fields, high-plain deserts, pulsating metropolises and offbeat oases.

    Iconic cities that need no introduction are just the icing on this culture-laden cake. Yes, you have the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Smithsonian in Washington DC but the buzz of music, art and film finds its way down into everyday life, with citizens as often creating as consuming. From Toronto’s film festival to Mexico City’s thriving music scene, North America is a veritable smorgasbord of enlightening experiences just waiting to be uncovered.
