Love Movies? Get Out and Enjoy The Best Drive-in Outdoor Theaters in the Valley
Anette Brown on 30 Jan 2021
Looking for some family fun this weekend? What about a fresh idea for date night?
How about a drive-in movie?
Drive-in theaters started springing up all over the Valley in 2020, filling a void caused by the closure of indoor theaters because of COVID-19. They offer patrons a big-screen experience from the safety and comfort of their vehicles. Some even offer snacks. Who knows if the trend will last, but it’s great to enjoy while it’s here!
When you check websites for this week’s flicks, be sure you check rules regarding safety protocols and important things like, can you bring in your own snacks?
Then, get set for buttery popcorn and grab the car keys. Here are the best outdoor theaters in the Valley:
