Last Month For Michigan Drive-Ins – Hurry Up and Go!
Well, whether we like it or not, it's officially September now. There are tons of summer activities that we won't get to do anymore until next year. One of our favorites here in Michigan is drive-in movie theaters. There are only 11 digital drive-in theaters left in Michigan, and one of them is right here in Genesee County!
The US-23 Drive-In off Fenton Road in Flint is a beloved spot in the community for seeing a flick outdoors. While their site says they operate only until Labor Day, the FAQ's page explains that they usually close up for the year at the end of September. That only leaves a couple more weekend opportunities left for a fun night with the family!
For those who remember the 50s, 60s and 70s, drive-ins were one of the only places to go and hang out, and one of the best. They were especially popular for date nights. Nowadays, they have more of a bring-the-whole-family feel. But who says you can't still have a date night out there? Go for it!
Why Not Just Go To a Regular Theater?
Well, there are lots of reasons why we prefer drive-ins! For one, you can talk during the movie because you're all in your own car, which is perfect for those of us with young ones who just can't stop gabbing and watch the dang movie! You can also bring your own food and drinks if you'd like, and if not they have great concessions stands with options for the whole family. Tickets are usually pretty cheap and you're supporting a small business rather than a big movie theater chain!
So what are you waiting for? Go take the family to a drive-in while kids still know they exist!!!
