Starlight Six Drive In Theatre: Movies Under The Stars

August 6, 2014 12:04 pm

One American institution that is disappearing is the drive-in theatre. With home entertainment becoming cheaper and more impressive, fewer and fewer people are leaving the house for movies of any kind. But you have to give credit to the proprietors of Atlanta’s Starlight Six drive-in for sticking with the classics and making it work. There’s something ineffably romantic about the drive-in experience, and if you haven’t been to one recently you owe it to yourself to give it a try.

The Starlight Six runs on the classic drive-in formula – tune your radio to a specific channel to get the film’s audio and put your wipers on when it rains. It’s also a real bargain – you can see a double feature for just seven dollars. Sure, the place may feel a bit dated, but that’s part of the charm and Atlanta locals don’t mind. If you plan to visit, note that admission is cash only.
