Drive-in Movies near Louisville
Drive-in movies have become very popular in 2021. Maybe this is one positive thing about the pandemic?
Since the weather is turning a little bit cooler, a drive-in movie one evening would be a really good idea. There are many places offering drive-in movies near Louisville.
Drive-in movies near Louisville are fun for families this year because they are totally set up for social distancing. You stick to your spot with your family and you are good to go. Each place has its own guidelines to follow.
Many of the drive-in spots are pop-up locations this year because people realize this is a great 2021 activity for families. This list of locations is not all-inclusive but gives you some options to check out.
When you go to a drive-in movie, bring things to be comfy. Many of the places allow you to sit in chairs outside your car. In the back of your car, blankets and pillows are a must. Bring your own snacks and drinks to round out the evening.
What’s also great about these drive-in movies is that many of them are showing “throw-back” films. My kids love taking a peak into my childhood by watching “old” movies. With all that is going on in the world, break away for a couple of hours to be outside together and enjoy a movie.
Another must, bug spray. You don’t want to be annoyed by bugs when you are trying to enjoy a movie. Bring that spray!
