Drive-in Movie Theaters & Pop-ups around Houston: Family Movie Nights with Social Distance

Movie theaters may have reopened in Texas, but there are many who are still understandably wary of plunking down into an indoor movie seat for a flick. Enter: the drive-in movie theater. Drive-in movies offer all the fun of a traditional movie experience with a retro twist; tickets are cheaper and often by the carload, you can pop your own popcorn and bring your own snacks, and you're adhering to social distancing standards as you enjoy a contactless cinematic experience. It's no wonder these screenings in the Houston area are selling out at record pace! 

The drive-in movie theaters listed below are all confirmed open as of the publication date and offering a slew of movie screenings on a near daily basis. As other theaters reopen and pop-up drive-ins are added, we will add them to this list.

Don't forget to bring masks for the bathroom and concession stands. These fun kids' face masks are just the ticket!
