Finding Drive-Ins Made Easy

All Rights Reserved.As I was posting the Journal article about the Silverdome Drive-in closing, I wanted to find out where the nearest drive-ins were to the Silverdome's location. Rather than sift through the 50+ theaters within 30 miles, I decided that it would make a lot more sense to add the ability to limit a Nearby Theaters search to drive-ins only.

I'm happy to report that the Nearby Theaters and By Region pages now allow you to limit the scope of the search to show only drive-in theaters! The selection for switching between the search options appears at the right of the tabbed title bar, and you can choose between searching for only active drive-ins or for all of them, whether they are showing movies or not.

To see this in action, take a look at the standard Nearby Theaters page for Pontiac, Michigan. You'll see a list of 54 theaters currently active in the surrounding area. Now, if you select to show only drive-ins near Pontiac, you'll see that there are two open-air locations within about 30 miles. Take a look at a list of all active drive-ins located in Pennsylvania (which has the most in the United States) for another way to find drive-ins.

Going to a drive-in movie is a unique experience, and if you haven't done so lately (or ever), you owe it to yourself to track down the nearest drive-in and enjoy!
