Drive-in movie theaters are becoming a rare sight across the country. Currently, only about 300 remain in operation. Yet, with social distancing guidelines a part of everyday life now, these throwback establishments are being rediscovered by those looking for safe, family-friendly summer entertainment.
And that’s why this area is so lucky to have the Holiday Drive-In Movie Theater!
A Look Back
The first drive-in movie in the country was screened in 1921 in Texas. Cars piled in bumper-to-bumper, and a new American pastime was born!
By the 50’s, drive-in culture was in the heyday of its popularity. Enter Holiday Drive-In! Opened in 1955, the theater debuted with a single screen. Over the years, additional screens have been added, and the drive-in upgraded to digital projection in 2016.
Time-Tested Family Fun
What is it about drive-in movie theatres that appeal to families after all this time?
Perhaps it’s the value; at Holiday Drive-In, you can enjoy a nightly double feature for one low price. Maybe it’s because a drive-in movie is an activity that every single member of the family can enjoy. Kids, grandparents, and even well-behaved family pets are invited to enjoy a movie under the stars.
Some people love these movies for their snacking potential. Holiday Drive-In offers a selection of snacks at the concessions stands, but you can also bring your own favorite treats from home.
Or maybe families just enjoy being part of a tradition that has stood the test of time!
66 Years and Going Strong
The Holiday Drive-In Movie Theater has been a popular spot for both locals and visitors since it first opened. Now in its 66th season, the theater is excited to welcome guests back at a time when safe, family-friendly entertainment options are still so important.
