The (Really) Big Screen
Drive-in theaters may not be as numerous as they were when car culture first took off in the 1950s, but in the age of COVID-19 and the need to be socially distant, we're especially lucky they're still around. In the pandemic, many theaters have innovated with online food orders and ticket sales, to-your-car-door concession delivery, and a range of safety measures. In good times and bad, they provide an inimitable viewing experience, and their admission and concessions prices are often a bargain compared with their indoor counterparts. We researched online reviews and compared rankings to find some favorites nationwide that are always a cheap way to enjoy a movie or two ... or three.
