The Stars of Sky & Screen: Wisconsin's Drive-In Movie Theaters

Jun 14, 2016 03:12PM, Published by Jessica Witkins, Categories: Adventure, Travel, Kids




At the height of its popularity in the 1950s and 60s, some 4,000 drive-in movie theaters scattered the U.S. Though many of those theaters closed, fortunately Wisconsin still offers families a chance at the drive-in movie experience. 

Let the kids stay up late on your next vacation with old-fashioned film fun – visit one of the state's remaining nine drive-in locations! These vintage movie venues offer double features, concessions, and many of the season’s newest flicks. Get comfy in the car, or snuggle up with blankets outside.
