3. Starlite Drive-In, Grand Bend, Ontario

Grand Bend’s Starlite is one of 17 surviving “Starlite” branded drive-ins in North America (in 1955 there were 171 drive-ins that shared the name). Movies here are first-run, but everything else is old-fashioned: a cartoon before the feature, 25-cent soda and popcorn refills, and cash-only admission ($9.50 for adults/$6 for kids).

    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.
