Drive In Movies This Summer In the Pacific Northwest

While many movie theaters are still limited capacity or not showing as many movies, drive in theaters are back again this summer, although there are not quite as many options for the carload prices, but instead they are offering per person prices.

If you are looking for fun ways to get out and see a movie together as a family, we have a big list of current spots you can go to, and enjoy a drive in movie. Some of these are pop-up drive in movie theaters at various locations throughout the Northwest. We have also included a handful of permanent drive in movie theaters still in existence.

If you know of other drive in movies around the Northwest happening this year, let us know and we will add it to the list!
