Movies on a big screen, snuggled in the car with the old-school speaker on or the radio tuned in, the biggest bucket of popcorn possible, and the sound of cicadas distantly in the background. There is nothing quite like the magic of watching a movie on a giant screen under the stars of a beautiful night sky. The drive-in movie theater is the perfect idea for an experience of nostalgia on a warm summer night. 

Wisconsin is lucky to have several drive-in theaters remaining. 

Whether you want to visit a drive-in closer to home or are planning a summer road trip elsewhere in the state, here’s a list of nine Wisconsin drive-ins where you can enjoy a movie from the comfort of your own vehicle – all while sharing the nostalgia and making lasting memories with your family. All theaters update their movie showings on their websites. Check ahead for the most up-to-date information.
