Open Drive-In Movie Theaters Are Starting To Pop Up All Over Ohio
Here in Ohio, things are starting to look like the good old days. Drive-in theaters all throughout the Buckeye State are gearing up for opening day weekends, as state officials have recently permitted these unique businesses to open under social distancing guidelines due to COVID-19. Although catching a film at these one-of-a-kind theaters will certainly incite nostalgia, there will be some differing policies from yesteryear’s, such as cars parked in every other space, online ticket sales and food permits for outside food and beverage. The following is a list of some of Ohio’s most beloved drive-in theaters, which are opening for the season soon or have opened already. Grab the family, pack your favorite snacks and hit the road!
