Visit Georgetown Drive-In in Georgetown, Indiana, for a nostalgic night of family fun to remember. This dual-screen outdoor attraction prides itself in an authentic drive-in movie experience that’s not only fun for visitors of all ages, but also easy on the pockets. This local favorite is only a 20-minute drive from downtown Louisville and 10 minutes from downtown New Albany. It's one of the few drive-in theaters still in operation in the U.S.
The drive-in is celebrating its 70th season in 2021, and they definitely kick it old school. That's the beauty of drive-in movies: you get out in the open air and enjoy summer movies with your family. Don't expect a lot of modern conveniences, but do expect some old-school fun!
May 7 is opening day for the Georgetown Drive-In. If you plan on going, you're in for a treat. Godzilla vs. King Kong and Tom and Jerry will play on the front screen, while Wonder Woman 1984 will show on the back screen.
Use these insider tips to make the most of your trip to the drive-in:
- The Georgetown Drive-In offers two movie screens. Each plays two movies for the night. Showtimes and box office hours vary, so be sure to check the website.
- Get there early to beat the crowd. We suggest arriving at least 45 minutes before the show for a great parking spot near the front.
- Admission for regular showings is $11 for adults, $6 for kids 6-12 and FREE for kids under six. The box office is cash only so make sure you stop by the ATM machine before you go!
- The Georgetown Drive-In concession stand sells hamburgers, popcorn, hot dogs and other movie bites at reasonable prices. The concession stand does take credit cards, but there is a $5 minimum charge.
- Bring chairs and blankets if you decide to watch the movies outside of your vehicle. Be prepared to comply with the theater’s specific hygiene and social distancing guidelines.
- Check the weather forecast, as the Georgetown Drive-In doesn’t give rainchecks.
- The Georgetown Drive-In provides two audio options for movie goers. You can either listen to the movie from your car radio (front screen: 95.1 FM or rear screen: 91.1 FM) or use the vintage wired speakers.
- If you are traveling from Kentucky and your route requires you to cross the Ohio River, take the I-64 route to cross the toll-free Sherman Minton Bridge. Another toll-free option is the Second Street (George Rogers Clark Memorial) bridge from downtown Louisville.
