If you ever make it to Baltimore, you have to go to Bengies! It is so much fun. We went during Memorial Day weekend for the dusk to dawn show.

THe concession stand, the screen....everything is authentic It's $9.00 a person...but is still a great value compared to the multiplex theatres.

I remember growing up in Chicago going to one at Harlem and Irving Park quite a bit.

Elm Road Drive-In Theatre: Welcome
I would agree that OH and PA have more than their fair share.

Right around where I live there's one in Dickson City and another in Hunlock Creek.

There isn't one in Dallas, but there is one in Waco.
There is one in Ennis, which is like a 20 minute drive from Dallas down I45. I went there once, I thought it was cool. I prefer regular theatres, but drive-ins are cool too.

In Ft Lauderdale we have a 14 screen Drive-In and it's open everyday year round. During the day it's a giant indoor outdoor flea market and at night there's movies. They advertise it as Florida's second most visited attraction. Hmm, wonder what the first is?

My oldest sister and her husband owned a drive-in in the area where I grew up in the Midwest. I remember being a teenager and getting my car load of friends in for free. It was also a flea market on weekend days during the warmer months.
