Remember the summer weekends of your childhood spent at the local drive-in? The fun of seeing your classmates, the delicious whiff of popcorn mixed with a warm breeze, the joy of watching a movie against the backdrop of the night sky? Fortunately, the greater Nashville area has plenty of places for you to recreate that magic with your own kids. Here’s where to indulge in nostalgia and fun:
If you’re willing to make the drive out to Watertown, Stardust Theater is a cute and classic choice. This theater operates from March to November, with 7-days a week movies from Memorial Day to mid-August. Enjoy a yummy concessions stand that includes treats like pizza, burgers, and Philly Cheese steak sandwiches. Tickets are $9 for adults, $7 for kids 6-11, and free for kids five and under. =
This is where you’ll go if you want to feel cultured. This nonprofit theater is a unique Nashville treasure dedicated to showing the best of independent, documentary, and international cinema. Their drive-in theater requires only one ticket per vehicle, and guests will have access to the indoor concession stand.
