Drive-In movies are all the rage in the Tennessee Valley

drive-in movies

Thanks to the ease of social distancing outdoors, drive-in movies in Huntsville are popping up all over the place! Drive-ins are a delightfully retro way for families to still do something fun together, without breathing in all the recycled air or cramming into packed theater spaces. Several movie series have been popping up all over North Alabama – just pick the one showing one of your favorites, pack a picnic supper or movie snacks, and hit the drive-in!

Lowe Mill likes to stay funky, so this drive-in features obscure live and animated short films. Their sometimes PG-13 rating might be better for older kids. Every Saturday this summer the gates open at 7:00 PM and the show starts at sunset in the water tower lot. Movies start at sunset and all flicks must be enjoyed from your vehicle.
