It seems like drive-in movie theaters are a thing of the past now, and that's sad. However, there are still a few still fully operational in Indiana.

One of my favorite places to go in the summer is the drive-in movie theater. Something about seeing movies at night underneath the stars just speaks to me. Here in the Evansville area, we are most familiar with the Holiday Drive-In located in Reo, Indiana. However, back in the day, we had several drive-in movie theaters all throughout the area.

The same goes for the entire state of Indiana. What was once a popular place to visit, has become kind of a thing of the past. Some folks in the state may not have even been to a drive-in movie theater, or even have one in their area. That being said, according to Visit Indiana, the state of Indiana has the fourth most drive-in theatres in America. That's saying a lot when you find out exactly how many drive-in movie theaters remain in Indiana.

When it comes to traditional movie theaters in Indiana, there are hundreds to choose from. Heck, there are even multiple locations in bigger cities. However, when it comes to drive-in movie theaters, there are less 20 locations that are still operational in Indiana. Two years ago, we had a couple more that were open, but since then they have closed down. So let's take a look at the remaining Indiana drive-ins.

Two years ago, IndyStar released a list of the 20 remaining drive-in movie theaters in Indiana. However, since then the Auburn Garrett Drive-In was closed in 2023, with hopes of opening again in 2024 (no update on the progress of that). Also, Canary Creek Cinemas announced last year that they were closing after If you are looking to catch a couple of movies under the stars, you will want to see which one of these drive-ins is closest to your area.
