In a day and age where everything is fast paced and movies and television shows can be instantly streamed to any of your devices at any moment, there’s something appealing about slowing things down a bit. Heading to a drive-in movie theater to enjoy the latest films outdoors from the privacy of your own vehicle could be just the change of pace you and your friends or family need. Drive-ins are becoming somewhat of a rarity these days so metro Detroiters are lucky to have two theaters in the area. Below we’ve put together four reasons why you should make time for the drive-in this summer.
Some younger readers might not know this, but drive-in movie theaters were all the rage many years ago. It was the place to be on summer nights. It’s a great way to have your kids experience movies in a different way, or to relive old memories for adults.
As Michiganders we know that our window for truly warm and beautiful weather is small and precious. We also know that there are numerous must-see blockbusters coming out this summer, so why not kill two birds with one stone and catch a movie outside? An entertaining movie under the beautiful Michigan stars sounds like a perfect summer night.
If you go to your local theater, your ticket only gets you into one movie, but at the drive-in your ticket is good for two movies. Two for the price of one is never a bad thing, especially when this summer is packed with so many must-see movies.
Going to a movie theater is almost a guaranteed good time, but going to a drive-in is a fun change of pace. The experience of watching a movie outside, listening through a radio, and seeing a double feature all offer a different movie-going experience that can be fun for the whole family.
For your next trip to the movies, head out Ford Wyoming Drive-In in Dearborn or USA Hockey Arena in Detroit. Both will be offering double-features, seven days a week in the summer (USA Hockey Arena’s begins on June 9). Be sure to check out both sites for movie times and more information on both locations.
