SUCK ON SUMMER GOODNESS: Drive-in movie tonight

Recommend Blog Post
Total Recommendations (0)


Like those now-scarce restaurants where roller-skating servers deliver food to your car, drive-in movies had their heyday in the '50s. These days, most movies watched in the car are on computer or smart-phone screens. But while drive-ins.com lists only six open drive-ins in the state, you don't have to travel back in time to enjoy the summer-night experience of watching (or, better yet, not watching) a big-screen film in the privacy of your own car. Skyline Drive-In, which opened in 1962, is still showing movies on weekends from March through October. You listen to the movie on an FM radio. The Skyline bans outside food and drink (there's a snack bar), alcohol and drugs.

  • DETAILS: 182 SE Brewer Road, Shelton, $7, $1 for ages 6-11, free for 5 and younger, gates open at 7 p.m. Friday-Sunday, movies begin at dusk, 360.426.4707 or skylinedrive-in.com
  • FILMS SCREENING TONIGHT: Horrible Bosses, Cowboys and Aliens and Rocky Horror Picture Show
