This Drive-In Theater In Utah Is Having Retro Movie Nights All Week Long

Double the throwbacks for a bargain!
Redwood Drive-In Theater In Utah Is Showing Classic Films All Week

If you've been dreaming about indulging in the simpler things in life, an excellent retro flick under the stars might just be the ticket (no pun intended). Redwood Drive-In Theater in Utah is turning your car into a real life time machine by showing throwback double features all week. You can catch your favorite 80's and 90's films for a little blast from the past and a break from reality.

Redwood Drive-In is giving you the chance to relive your favorite cinematic moments on the big screen again, and it couldn't be better timing.

The weather in West Valley City, Utah, is perfect for a little evening under the stars right now.

You and your S/O or besties can fill up the trunk with snacks and blankets for an epically cozy movie night.

All this week, the drive-in is offering $10 double-features so that you can choose from classics like E.T. and Jurassic Park for all your alien vs. dinosaurs needs.

If you're looking for something to spark your inner adventurer, you can catch The Goonies and Gremlins back to back instead.

No matter which ones you choose, you are sure to feel all of the nostalgia vibes on full volume while snuggled up in your car or truck bed.

Bonus points if you bring along your kitted out retro van. 

Each movie bundle starts around 9:30 p.m., and the second film usually airs between 11:15 p.m. and 11:45 p.m.

The theater recommends showing up about an hour before the movie starts so that you can get a parking spot and some confections from the snack bar if you didn't bring your own.

You can catch the epic soundtracks either through your car speakers or a portable radio on the FM channels. 

All you need to do now is hop in the car and grab those snacks to settle in for a night of Goonie-tastic, Gremlin-credible fun.
