Spring and summertime mean drive-in movie theatres are finally opening up for the season. With Georgia's shelter-in-place guidelines being lifted, movie-goers can enjoy the little things in life again, at a distance. The 1980s-themed drive-in movie theatre in Georgia and is showing highly anticipated films right now.
"We wish to sincerely thank all our loyal customers for their continued support, and we look forward to better serving you in the near future when this present situation has passed," the drive-in explained on their Facebook.
DeKalb County announced a shelter-in-place order on March 27, causing the theater to shut down. But the Starlight Drive-In announced it was reopening less than a month later on April 22.
Indoor movie theatres are also reopening, but not until Monday, April 27.
Some counties and cities have been able to keep their drive-ins open, but this is Atlanta's only drive-in movie theatre, so many residents have been patiently awaiting the reopening.
The drive-in's snack bar and flea market will remain closed, but visitors can bring in their own food and drinks.
While attending the movie, everyone must continue to practice social distancing and cannot view the movie outside of their vehicle.
Showings start at 9:00 p.m. every night with the double-feature screens. There are four screens visitors can choose from, depending on what visitors are in the mood for.
This week and the beginning of next, the theatre is playing Bad Boys For Life, Bloodshot, The Invisible Man, The Hunt, Trolls World Tour and Sonic the Hedgehog.
Tickets are only $10 for adults. Grabbing a sandwich or bucket from Hattie's B's Hot Chicken, a pie from Savage Pizza or a burger from Wrecking Bar Brewpub and heading to the drive-in are some great weekend plans and an unconventional date night idea with your boo thing.
Address: 2000 Moreland Ave. SE, Atlanta, GA
