Right Now Is The Perfect Time To Catch A Movie At New Mexico’s Only Drive-In Theater
Tired of spending your evenings watching Netflix and chilling on the couch? While movie theaters around the state are still temporarily closed because of the pandemic, there is one spot where you can leave the house and safely catch a flick with friends: the Fort Union Drive-In Movie Theater.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
Admission is $20 per carload, with a current restriction of five people per car. Gates open at 7 p.m. Friday through Sunday and movies begin at dusk. Details about movie showings, concessions, and more can be found on the theater’s Facebook page.
