Guide: Drive-in and outdoor movie events on Long Island

Maybe some movie theaters are closed or maybe you’re not ready to sit in a theater, either way, you’re in luck! There are pop-up drive-in theaters and outdoor movie events all around the Hudson Valley. Check the websites because dates and times are subject to change.
Here are some tips before you head out:
  • Check event websites before heading out. Some venues may cancel movie dates due to inclement weather.
  • Arrive early, parking is sometimes limited and spots may fill up fast so be sure to get there early.
  • If events require tickets, make sure to get yours ahead of time, as they may sell out.
  • Check event websites on what you can and cannot bring.
