Outdoor movies and drive-in movies have been taking place all year, and are continuing this summer.
Drive-in movies, in particular, made a big comeback in 2020 and remain popular in 2021.
Permanent Drive-In Movie Theaters
There is no permanent drive-in movie theater in Charlotte, but there are several that are within an easy drive.
Hound’s Drive-In in Kings Mountain, Badin Road Drive-In in Albemarle, and Sunset Drive-In in Shelby all show movies on the weekends. (Make sure to check their social media to see any schedule changes.)
These drive-in theaters vary in pricing — Hound’s charges per car and Badin Road charges per person. They tend to be reasonably affordable, and a safe way to enjoy a movie.
Pop-Up Drive-In and Outdoor Movies
There are also some places that are showing pop-up drive-in movies, or outside movies. We’ll keep updating as the season goes on, and we expect to see more and more outdoor movies this spring and summer.
