This Florida Drive-In Is Featuring 80s Favorites While New Movie Releases Are Delayed

A way to get out without really getting out.
Silver Moon Drive In Theatre In Florida Is Having An 80s Retro Movie Week

Drive-in movie theatres have always had this air of romance about them, but they’re also a great way to get out without really getting out. If you’re looking to cure that cabin fever without really socializing, then Silver Moon Drive-In Theatre in Florida might be worth checking out. And with tons of new movie releases getting postponed through March and April, Silver Moon is showing some of your favorite old-school classics this week.

Just a short drive from the heart of Orlando, Silver Moon shows oldies and first-run movies with double features every night for just $6.

Movies that were supposed to debut in March and April, including Mulan, A Quiet Place Part 2, and the latest James Bond installation, have been postponed in an attempt to help stop the spread of the coronavirus in busy theaters.

Most of the new film's postponed release dates are still to be determined, with some titles new anticipated dates have been announced. Military Wives has been pushed to May 22 and F9 pushed to April 2, 2020.

Retro Week officially starts this Friday, March 20, featuring some 80s oldies and goodies, until Thursday, March 26, 2020.

Titles like Back to the Future, Jaws, The Breakfast Club, and Uncle Buck will be showing throughout the week, so what better excuse to take advantage of $6 flicks, no school, and low gas prices — while also not having to leave your car.

Like any movie, if you decide to go you’ll want to come early to get a good spot. You can bring your own snacks and blankets then tune in to the film through your FM car radio.

You can even rent speakers from the theatre or bring your own to amplify the experience.

Silver Moon’s sister drive-in location, Joy Lan Drive-In Theatre and Swap Shop, will also be showing throwbacks this week including your favorite 80s alien E.T. and Marty McFly's shenanigans in Back to the Future.
