There’s really nothing more idyllic than sitting outside on a warm
summer night.
Add a drive-in movie to the equation, and you’re nearing perfection.
Anyone can go see a movie in an overly air-conditioned theater with
popcorn-covered floors and squeaky seats.
But if you want to get the most out of your movie experience, enjoy your
cinema al fresco.
 Many small towns around the U.
S.
still have drive-in movie theaters that have been a part of the local
community for decades.
In fact, there are than 330 still remaining in America.
These theaters are more than a source of entertainment, they ignite a feeling
of nostalgia that you can’t get anywhere else.
 So take a trip down memory lane, and visit one of these theaters before
the summer is over.
The Admiral Twin Drive-In —Tulsa, Okla.
Red skies at night, a movie-goers delight.
(Photo: The Admiral)Many of the locals in Tulsa have a history with the
Admiral Twin Drive-In.
The theater has been around for decades, and the tradition of taking the
entire family to a drive-in movie is alive and well.
As far as screens are considered, the Admiral has two that are nine-stories
high — talk about HD! Grab some popcorn or a hamburger from the nearby
concession stand, and check out a newly released film.
Sunset Drive-In — San Luis Obispo Calif.
Going on a first date? Try a drive-in.

Skip the theatre and cuddle up with your honey at
this authentic drive-in located on California’s central coast.
San Luis is known for having sunshine 315 days out of every year, so why not
watch the sunset while you take in a cheesy rom-com? Sunset Drive-In
shows two new releases nightly, and at just $7 a ticket, the price
can’t be beat.
The old school drive-in also has a new school twist — you can purchase
your tickets on Fandango.
Starlight Drive-In Theatre —Atlanta There are no bad seats at this
theater.
(Photo: Starlight)Just because it’s a drive-in, doesn’t mean
you have to stay in the car.
At the Starlight Drive-In, you and the family can pile into the back of your
pick up truck with blankets and pillows and watch the show from there.
Or if you prefer, you can bring lawn chairs and sit outside.
The nearby concession stand offers up goodies like popcorn and nachos, but at
this theater, you can also bring your own snacks! Oh, and it gets better, $9
buys you a double feature.
SkyView Drive-In — Belleville, Illinois Join the tradition at
Skyview.
(Photo: Dennis Dixson)When Skyview theatre opened, Harry S.
Truman was president and The Third Man was the top movie at the theater.
Today, the drive-in is still going strong, providing family-friendly
entertainment to the people of Belleville, Illinois.
Skyview is open 7 days a week, so leave your excuses at the door, tune your
radio to the FM station, and enjoy the show.
Sunset Drive-In —Colchester, Vermont A vintage car show at Sunset
Drive-In.

wouldn’t be complete without mentioning Sunset Drive-in in Vermont.
This theater has four, yes four, massive screens, so you’re bound to
find a movie you like.
The first two shows start at dusk every night, and are followed by two more
later in the evening.
 If you’re not impressed with the selection, visitors can also
play (drumroll please)… putt putt golf! 

The 49’er
Drive-In — Valparaiso, Ind.
  Families enjoying the big screen.
(Photo: The 49′er)One of the best things about seeing a drive-in movie
is the food and the 49’er drive-in does not disappoint.
Need to feed your family? Order a homemade 14-inch pizza for your entire
crew! A double feature is just $10 for adults and $5 for children ages 5-11,
so if you add it up, it’s a creative and affordable night out for the
family.
Wellfleet Drive-In Theatre — Wellfleet, Mass.
Put the top down and enjoy the show at Wellfleet.
(Photo: Dave S/Flickr)Cape Cod may be known for it’s beaches, but
it’s also home to one of the most unique drive-ins you’ll find
in America.
The Wellfleet drive-in theatre was built in 1957, has a playground for kids
who might get restless during the movie, and serves oysters at the concession
stand.
Gotta love New England! Grab a friend and check out a first run double
feature every night this summer.
