Drive In Movies Get the Go-Ahead to Open



Exciting times as outdoor theaters get a chance to show great movies

Drive In Movies Opening

Hooray to those of us living in New York State. Governor Cuomo announced that our drive-in theaters can finally open.

Below are the drive-ins that we found in our search.  Be sure to check the website of each drive-in for their details about opening. Each group has determined its own method of implementing social distancing.  And its own way of accepting reservations.

If we missed one of your favorite drive-ins, please send an email to editor@excitingread.com. 

Hudson Valley Parent magazine congratulates Beth Wilson, owner of The Warwick Drive-In Theater, for being such a strong community advocate.



Warwick Drive-In Theater
5 Warwick Tpk. (Rte 21) just off Rte. 94. Warwick, NY
(845)986-4440
They feature a park-like, grassy setting on 11 acres of farmland. With first-run movies, home-cooked food and multiple screens for a bigger choice of features. They use the latest in FM radio sound.

Tips for making your movie adventure a fun time
  • Be respectful of those around you as we practice social distancing. And observe the regulations established by the local theater.
  • Bring bug spray
  • Bring blankets for little ones
  • Clean your car window (who needs to watch a movie through bugs on the glass!)
  • Bring jumper cables (patrons sometimes drain their battery unknowingly, or you can help a neighbor who drained theirs.)
  • Try and buy your snacks at the snack counter (that's where the drive-ins make their profit helping to ensure they'll be around next summer.) Be sure to observe the rules established about ordering and picking up food.
