Whenever I head out of town, I always search for drive in movie theaters near me because there aren’t any on Long Island or in NYC. Going to a drive in movie theatre is such a fun experience and I try my hardest to make sure that I sneak one in whenever I can! 

I think it’s awesome that there are so many drive in movie theatres around the United States for families to head out and enjoy a film on the big screen. But sadly, it’s a dying art! Back in the day, drive in movie theaters were more popular, but they are far and few in between thanks to the high price of real estate. BOO! 

If you are like me – looking for a little nostalgia and a whole lot of popcorn – here’s a list that will hopefully answer, “Are there any drive in movie theaters near me?”  This list will include drive in movie options all over the United States as a means to inspire anyone in the United States to plan a family movie night in old school style at their local drive in movie theatre.
