Open Drive-In Movie Theaters Are Starting To Pop Up All Over West Virginia

How long has it been since you’ve seen a movie on the big screen? And I’m talking about the really big screens: good, old-fashioned drive-ins. Around the state, drive-in movie theaters are opening back up for the summer season, making this weekend the perfect time to plan an outing to the outdoor theater nearest you.

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:

Sounds fun, doesn’t it? To keep up to date on admissions prices, movie options, start times, and more, check the websites and Facebook pages for these theaters: Hilltop (website/Facebook), Sunset (website/Facebook), Meadow Bridge (website), Pipestem (Facebook).

And keep in mind that most of the theaters begin their feature film at dusk and only accept cash. Be sure to bring enough for a visit to the concession stand!

Where do you go to see a drive-in movie? What was the first movie you saw at a drive-in theater? We’d love to hear about it in the comments!
