Drive-In Ontario

While we don’t have any permanent Drive-In Ontario Movie theatres directly in Toronto, Brampton or Mississauga there are some in cities within a short drive that you can enjoy with your family. Never been to a Drive-In Movie Theatre before? If this is your first time at a drive in here is what to expect: Drive in Movie theatres play movies at night on large screens. You drive into the parking area for the theatre and park at the screen that will be playing the movie you are there to see. 

Lots of people drive into the parking lot with the car is facing forward and they sit in the seats normally to watch the movie. Other people reverse into the parking spot and open up the trunk to and set up their own chairs to watch the movie. The theatres normally open around 8pm and the first movie starts around 9pm (check the individual theatre times). 

You listen to the movie over your car radio, the drive in theatre will tell you what station that you will need to tune in to when you arrive.  Normally there are at least 2 movies that play back to back, sometimes they also have “all-nighter” events that play 3 or more movies.
