4. Hi-Way Drive-In, Santa Maria, California

Located just off Highway 101 in Santa Maria, the Hi-Way is a total throw-back to the golden days of the drive-in. For just $7, you can see a double feature. Hi-Way is a single-screen drive-in, so regulars recommend getting in early for a prime parking spot.

Movie popcorn is even better at a drive-in.

    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.
