There are still drive-in movie theaters in North Carolina YOU can visit.

Summer nights are the perfect time to cruise down and catch a movie from your local North Carolina drive-in movie theater. Drive-in theaters invoke a feeling of nostalgia for summer days gone by, with popcorn and fireflies aplenty.

Once upon a time, they were plentiful and dotted the landscape in most rural American towns, however many have since closed their lots.

“There are currently only about 330 drive-in theaters that remain in operation in the United States compared to a peak of about 4,000 in the late 1950’s,” the online resource said. “There are many reasons for the decline of the number of drive-in theaters. But one thing is certain – we must support remaining drive-ins to prevent their closure to maintain this truly unique experience that is an American as homemade apple pie.”

But don’t despair! There are still some fully functioning drive-in theaters up and running North Carolina. Some of them are airing special Halloween features in the next month or so. And a couple even have the special Taylor Swift Eras Tour movie coming up in October.

That makes for a lot of fun opportunities as the weather cools down, and your nostalgia heats up. Enjoy these North Carolina drive-in movie theaters.
