You heard it here first: This is going to be the summer of the drive-in.
What could be better than a double-feature under the stars? A new generation is joining the family-run throwbacks, and now it's easier than ever to sit back in your car and enjoy the best family movies to watch together.
In fact, many of the films you'll see are from your childhood: Back to the Future, Jaws, Jurassic Park and other family comedy movies your kids will love.
Some of the drive-ins on this list have been around for more than 50 years. Others, such as the Greenville Drive-In, Jericho Drive-In and Four Brothers Drive-In, are updated classics with delicious food and craft beers.
And some, such as the Skyline Drive-In, BelAire Diner and Mema's Pizzeria, are parking lot pop-ups that appeared this year. Even more will open this summer: The celebrated theater troupe Shakespeare & Company plans to open one in the Berkshires, while the Junk Yard Drive-In is planning to open on Long Island.
So go ahead and buy tickets for one of the drive-ins that opened in NYC this year, or head out of town for one of the drive-ins with grassy fields lined by trees. No matter where you decide to go, a night at a drive-in is def one of the best things a family can do in NYC right now.
