You can still kick it old school in Kansas City with two drive-in movie options. Both drive-ins have upgraded to digital projection, so your feelings of nostalgia won’t include a fuzzy/grainy picture. The viewing experience should be as clear as the summer sky.
Admission at either drive-in is $10 per adult, kids 11 and under are FREE. This admission gets you a double feature – that’s two movies back-to-back. Movies are shown, rain or shine. Check with each location for movie schedules.
Concessions are sold at both locations. Leashed pets are welcome, but you must pick up after them.
Here’s a little more about each individual drive-in:
