Catch Christmas Movies at This KY Drive-In Theater All Through November
I love going to the drive-in. There's nothing like watching a movie under the stars and enjoying snacks--or even dinner--from the concession stand; drive-in theaters have the BEST concession stands.
Of course, most drive-ins are only open from late spring until early fall. But not ALL of them.
CHRISTMAS MOVIES AT A DRIVE-IN
The Sauerbeck Family Drive-In in LaGrange KY extends its hours of operation well beyond when most drive-ins close for the season. It's a relatively NEW theater, to boot. From the drive-in's website:
LaGrange, Kentucky is the proud home to one of the newest Drive-In Theatres in the country! With state of the art 4k digital projection, a GIANT 98 foot diagonal screen (1,176 inch) and FM transmitted sound, the presentation will bring the thrill of Hollywood to Bluegrass.
This is from just two years ago:
THE SAUERBECK DRIVE-IN'S SUCCESSFUL HOLIDAY SEASON CONCEPT
I also wondered what an outdoor viewing experience in late fall would FEEL like; I've been at the Holiday Drive-In in the middle of JULY and needed a coat when I got around to that second feature.
But so what. If you want to visit a drive-in theater in November, you know the deal. And besides, you can stay in the warm comfort of your vehicle or bundle up outside and drink hot chocolate or coffee.
I think it sounds like a lot of fun to enjoy holiday releases in the same way we enjoy summer releases, and the Sauerbeck Drive-In ensures there are plenty of Christmas movies to enjoy. In fact, every Wednesday in November they show holiday movies.
LOAD UP ON OUTDOOR CHRISTMAS MOVIES
That line-up for the remainder of November includes A Christmas Story, Christmas Vacation, Elf, and How the Grinch Stole Christmas. And on November 25th, the Sauerbeck Drive-In will offer the Polar Express Experience.
I have friends who live in and around LaGrange, and this has proven to be a home run. But then again, any unique idea around the holidays is always welcome.
Who knows? Maybe this has ALREADY become one of your family's holiday traditions.
