The days of summer are winding down, as schools begin session, the days get shorter, and the weather starts to cool. What better way to celebrate a great summer than to watch a movie at a drive-in movie theater? There are over 500 drive-in movie theaters in the United States, offering a unique experience for enjoying movies and having fun!
Seeing movies under the stars is the stuff that memories are made of, so we've got an easy way for you to find where your nearest drive-in is located and what's playing!
- Visit the Nearby Theaters page
- Enter your ZIP code or allow the site to find your location
- You will see a list of all theaters near your location, so you will want to choose the Drive-ins selection in the "Show" options in the upper right hand corner.
- If you don't see any drive-ins listed (there aren't as many as there used to be), select a wider range. Choose 50 miles for the most theaters, and then you can choose the closest theater to your location.
Many drive-ins play first-run movies, so you'll see movies like Suicide Squad, but many also play family-friendly movies, such as Pete's Dragon, as well as classics from the past. For example, I found one nearby playing American Graffiti.
See a List of Drive-ins by State
You can see all the drive-ins for every state by going to the Theaters by Region page, and selecting Drive-ins in the "Show" options.
Which state has the most active drive-ins?

The best drive in is my area is in Muskegon at the four-screen Getty Drive in which is own by Celebration Cinema, the same chain which owns Celebration Cinema in Kalamazoo. I heard a lot of good things about the drive-in and I suggest that you check that theater out.
