Minnesota Drive-In Movie Guide

By Jodi Lorence, Macaroni Kid Publisher July 8, 2020

Attending a drive-in movie is one of many fond memories from my childhood and with my own children. So many fun experiences and if you have never been to one I highly recommend it. Take a little adventure to a drive-in movie theater. This summer it is almost a necessity to find some alternatives to being in groups of people to make memories with your family. I have put together a list of Drive-In Movie Theaters in Minnesota. What a great time to social distance your family from others by sitting out in the fresh air while watching a movie or two. Click on each theater to go to their website for more detailed information and also to see what movies are showing. Have fun!
