This Drive-In Movie Theater an Hour from Greenville, sC is Perfect for Making Family Memories

Posted on | 2 Comments

Drive-in movie theaters still exist and there’s one about an hour from Greenville, SC that is just perfect for making those fun, family memories together.

I went to a drive-in movie with my family when I was maybe 12 or 13 years old. It was so fun! We brought blankets and pillows and popcorn, tuned our radio to the channel that broadcasted the audio from the film, and had a blast together. Nowadays, drive-in movie theaters have all but disappeared. But there’s on in Greenwood, SC (a little over an hour from Greenville) that is still showing movies and it’s a great spot to make those lasting family memories.

Movie Times & Dates

The 25 Drive In Movie Theater, which first opened in 1945, shows movies and Friday and Saturday nights on three screens. The first movie starts around 8:15 pm, the second at 10 or 10:30 pm.

New movies will be posted by Tuesday or Wednesday before the weekend.

Movies range in rating from PG to R so be sure to check out what is showing beforehand to make sure it is an appropriate fit for your family.

Bathrooms are available.

Admission + Food

The 25 Drive In Movie Theater offers concessions as well but like any other restaurant the state, food is only available for takeout. If you want to bring your own food, you’re welcome to do so but will be asked to pay $20 for a food/drink permit.

The cost to go to the movie is $5 for ages 3-11 and $10 for ages 12+.

The owner of the drive-in movie theater talked to our friend, Amy Wood, at WSPA about the theater and what to expect:

We live in Greenwood and have been many times with our kids. It’s so much fun. Our church also “meets” there on Sundays during Covid-19 and stay in or on our cars. It’s pretty amazing!
