Drive-In Movie Theaters in and Near NYC For Summer 2021

As we head into the summer, drive-in movie theaters are proliferating in and near NYC, and we have our fingers crossed that we might even start seeing some of the lovely, outdoor screenings of yore, the ones that were FREE and required nothing more than a blanket and a picnic.

Throughout the pandemic, we've come to rely on Brooklyn's Skyline Drive-In, with its family-friendly line-up, and Juicy Lucy in Staten Island, which serves up flicks and food. Radial Park is usually cooking up interesting entertainment, from plays to Broadway/cinema mash-ups. And the Queens Drive-In, in partnership with the Museum of the Moving Image, splashes classics up on a big screen at the New York Hall of Science.

Keep this page bookmarked: We're continually updating it and our Event Calendar as we find more pop-up drive-in movies. We have lots of other family-friendly, socially distant fun in our Summer Fun Guide for New York City kids.
