Netflix is great and all but you really can’t beat an outdoor movie, especially during summer. That being said, there are several places across the state where you can enjoy a whole host of different films. Ready to check them out? Here are 6 of the best drive-in theatres to watch the big screen in Washington this summer
This drive-in has been open since 1949 and also happens to be Washington’s largest drive-in theatre. It has three different screens and can fit about 1,000 cars, Wowza! What’s extra cool is that you can watch double features so if you happen to be a fan of what’s playing, you’re in luck.
Where: 7369 State Highway 3 SW, Bremerton, WA
If you’re looking for a smaller, more intimate drive-in experience head to the Port Townsend Wheel-In Motor Movie. We love that this spot has remained small and family-owned as it still has much of its original charm. It has one screen and can park about 150 cars so you don’t have to worry about it getting too packed.
Where: 210 Theatre Road, Port Townsend, WA
Shelton’s Skyline Drive-In is a classic spot that’s been in the movie biz since 1962. You can never go wrong here and if you haven’t checked them out before, now is the time.
Where: 182 SE Brewer Road, Shelton, WA
Want the drive-in experience without the long drive? No worries, just head to Marymoor Park for the closest drive-in experience to Seattle. We love how accessible this spot is and it’s also great that they’re so focused on weekdays as you don’t have to wait until the weekend to watch a film outdoors!
Where: Marymoor Park, Redmond, WA
This one is another oldie but goodie, Auto-Vue has been in the movie biz since 1953 and is the only drive-in, in the area. They focus on weekend showings and have one screen making it a classic drive-in experience. If you’re planning to head out east, this is a great stop.
Where: 444 Auto View Rd, Colville, WA
This spot is another great one as it’s open for movies almost every day (except for Wednesday). This drive-in happens to be extra cool because they also happen to have go-karts and an arcade. Not many drive-ins can say that, at least that we know of.
Where: 1403 Monroe Landing Road, Oak Harbor, WA
See? You have plenty of places other than Netflix to watch movies this summer. We hope you enjoy the best drive-in theatres that Washington has to offer. Who knows, we might just see you at the big screen.
