WASHINGTON (WUSA9) - National Drive-in Movie Day is observed each year on June 6, which is the anniversary of the opening of Park-In Theaters, the first patented drive-in movie theater. At its peak, there were over 6,000 movie drive-in movie theaters in operation across the US. Now, there are less than 500.
In honor of the holiday, support one of your local drive-ins:
If you can’t make it to an actual theater, several local neighborhoods are hosting outdoor movie screenings throughout the summer. DCOutdoorFilms has created a compilation of these local initiatives.
