Romantic, cozy, and a total throwback, drive-in theaters are a great way to shake up movie night and can even encourage social distancing while having fun. Florida is home to some of the oldest surviving drive-in movie theaters, and soon, it will also hold Florida's and the world’s largest drive-in theater.
Called Lighthouse 5, the theater will be found in Eustis and feature 5 different screens, on-site restaurants, and even camping!
While drive-in movie theaters were prime entertainment in the 1940s to the 1960s, they faded into obscurity for a while before seeing a revival in recent years.
Like any good old fashion trend, they’ve been gaining popularity with people of all ages recently, and the Sunshine State itself has a number of them.
This new development in Eustis is a blend of nostalgic entertainment and modern convenience. An opening date hasn't been announced yet.
This would be your one-stop-shop for all your movie needs.
At the center of it all would be a lighthouse, the location’s namesake, as featured on their Facebook page.
The idea comes from Eustis native Spencer Folmar, who just purchased 71.4 acres of property for $460,000 in early March.
The world’s largest drive-in theater could be a popular destination for many, and a place to revisit all your favorite films and exciting new releases at once.
