I don't think the El Cajon one is still open. There's still both Santee and Spring Valley though and I think Escondido has one too

I read online somewhere that Ohio and Pa have the most drive-ins. We have two of them in Warren, Ohio one has three screens and i believe the other has two.

I always go to this one Elm Road Drive-In Theatre: Welcome where you get two movies for less than the price of one at the regular theater.

I live only 15 minutes away from the 2nd oldest drive in the the world.

It's called Lynn Drive In and it's located in Strasburg, Ohio.

Sacramento, California still has a drive in, with six different screens going at the same time. In fact, it is called the Sacramento 6 Drive In.

In the evening, when driving along the state highway you can actually see the movies on a couple of the screens.

It is located just to the north side of Rt 50 at the Bradshaw Rd exit, about 10 miles directly east of the downtown area.

We have one in McHenry, IL. I also know there's one in Dorr County in Wisconsin (saw the Batman movie there a few years ago). The one I went to as a kid is still in operation - Shankweilers in Orefield, PA.

Welcome to The Big and Beautiful Bengies Drive-In Theatre

The Bengies drive in is the last drive in theater in Maryland, located in the Baltimore suburb of Middle River. They claim to have the biggest movie screen in the United States. I been there many times and its been a great experience except when I forget my bug spray!!

PA is said to have the most with only 33 (June 2011).

The original big screen: Drive-in theaters still have a following

This article is believed inaccurate for omitting some that are still open.
