Paramount Drive-In Theatre

If you're looking for a classic drive-in movie theater experience, look no further. Paramount Drive-In first opened back in 1947 and was run as a drive-in theater until 1992, when it was turned into a swap meet. But the area returned to its roots in recent years, opening with two new 75-foot screens, Barco Digital projection and Dolby Digital radio sound so you can hear the movie on your own radio. There's a full snack bar, but you can also bring your own food and drink—though no alcoholic beverages are allowed. You'll see some people watching from inside their cars while others bring chairs and watch from the bed of their truck, but no matter your preference, it's going to be a good time.

    The ’80s arcade classic Rampage allowed players to inhabit the avatars of rabid mutant animals as they punched helicopters, ate people and demolished cities. That premise is a bit obvious for a major studio feature, but star Dwayne Johnson and dir...

    It’s a funny thing, timing. In 2012, when young-adult novel The Darkest Minds was published, its dystopian narrative about a fascist American government that locked up kids didn’t have much in the way of political bite. But as this movie version m...

    Imagine a trashy empty-calories combo of Sharknado and the gore-and-nudity-heavy Piranha 3D—two horror movies loaded with lovable dumbness. Then dial back those expectations by several nautical miles, deep into mild PG-13 territory, and you have T...

    Tom Cruise is 56 years old. Fifty. Six. And he’s been making Mission: Impossible movies for 22 of those 56 years. By all rights, Fallout, his sixth high-flying mission, should be to M:I what A View to a Kill was to Roger Moore’s James Bond run (Mo...

I went to Paramount Drive-In shortly after it reopened and had such a great time. While not necessarily in the best neighborhood, that all fades away once you get into the grounds. A traditional drive-in theater, the sound quality using your car radio is fantastic and the screen quality is great too. You'll see people watching from within their car or setting up a blanket and chairs outside or in the bed of their trucks. It's a fun way to watch movies and it's cheaper than seeing them in a traditional theater!
