If you haven't been to a drive-in before, then you are seriously missing out. Watching movies under the stars makes for the perfect cheap date night or fun activity with your BFF. For the ultimate experience, you will want to visit Canada's largest drive-in that is re-opening this May.

Starlight Drive-In Theatre is in Enderby, B.C. It is one hour from Kelowna or a five-hour drive from Vancouver.

What makes this old-fashioned theatre worth the drive is the fact it is the largest of its kind in North America. 

The screen is so colossal. It is 50 feet high and 120 feet wide for a total of 6000 square feet.

To give you an idea of just how big that is, you 60" television at home would be only roughly 10 square feet. So it would be the size of roughly 600 60" televisions!

This year, the drive-in will be showing all the upcoming blockbuster movies you want to see.

Some of the action-packed films they will be screening include No Time To Die, Top Gun Maverick, Disney's Mulan, The New Mutants, and Wonder Woman 1984.

Best of all, it is super cheap too. It is $11.00 per person and includes two movies.

Spots are first-come, first-served, so you'll want to show up as early as possible — especially on weekends. The gate opens three hours before, giving you plenty of time to get some snacks and claim a parking space.

You are also welcome to bring some pillows and blankets to turn your truck or hatchback into a bed. Or if you prefer you can bring lawn chairs to sit outside your car.

The exact schedule with the start times will be announced closer to May. For updates, you'll want to subscribe to their mailing list on their website.
