Drive-in Movie Theaters Near Philly and Outdoor Movies Playing Now

Families are flocking to retro drive-in movie theaters near Philadelphia and new pop-up outdoor movies in the area to watch their favorite movies with social distancing. Mommy Poppins Philadelphia has rounded up a few in the region that are certainly worth the drive. Some spots are near the Jersey Shore while others are close to the mountains. We've also included venues that provide an outdoor movie experience without sitting in the car. Bring a blanket or lawn chair to those.

To limit physical contact, most drive-in movie venues require online ticket purchases, so be sure to view the schedules in advance. Our list is constantly being updated with pop-up locations since organizers are still confirming their events. Check back often for new options. And when heading out, bring along a mask to wear in public areas, per CDC recommendations.

Browse through our Summer Activity Guide for Philadelphia for more ideas on ways to stay busy this summer.
