The come back of Drive In Movies

The Drive In Movie Theatre has been with us since the beginning of movies in general. Naysayers thought they were a fad which wouldn’t last just like rock and roll music.

These days, due to the concept of social distancing, Drive-In theatres are making quite the come back! Some are providing not just the movies but other forms of entertainment as well, like the live concert series sweeping the nation at Drive-In’s in 2020 as a result of the pandemic.

Enjoy our list of Alabama Drive In Movie Theatres. Stay tuned, we are on a mission to share where you can find a drive in for all the deep southern states. See the Georgia list here.
