The 25 Drive-In Movie Theater is an Hour from Greenville, SC and 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. Put “visit 25 Drive-In movie theater” on your bucket list this year.

I went to a drive-in movie (sometimes known as an ‘auto theater’) 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 one 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.
