Drive-in movie theatres conjure up images of an idyllic past, and also this scene from the musical Grease. With numerous such theatres near Toronto, there are ample opportunities for you to speed back in time to capture that nostalgic feeling of cozying up in your car, with fast food and popcorn, to watch a double feature under the stars.
Here's a round-up of drive-in move theatres in and around from Toronto.
It's the only drive-in theatre in Toronto proper. And, it's located by the water. There's also a driving range on-site. The Docks will provide you with a retro evening perfect for your next #tbt. Unlike other drive-ins, The Docks stays open year round.
Jump on the QEW and you'll quickly arrive at the 5 Drive-In. With three screens showing the latest new releases, you'll definitely want to stay for both feature films. Oh, and along with the movies, this drive-in has an impressive diner and snack bar.
The Stardust, north of the city in Newmarket, is under the same ownership as the 5 Drive-In. On Tuesday nights, you can bring a carload of people for $17. Pets are more than welcome too.
This drive-in holds all night movie marathon. Luckily, the next one is over the Simcoe Day long weekend. For $15, you can screen four movies and this time the roster includes Pixels, Vacation, Magic Mike XXL and horror film The Gallows.
This drive-in megaplex has two locations, but the Fonthill outpost is closer to Toronto. It includes four screens, and each one plays a double feature. For $13 you can watch movies from dusk until dawn - that's just two dollars more than an $11 general admission ticket.
