You don’t have to travel back in time to enjoy a drive-in movie theater anymore! They’re back and they’re here to stay. If you’ve never been to one before or have kids or grand-kids that have never been, it is worth taking them to a movie experience like this. Both theaters I will tell you about are very family-friendly and have parks available for children to play while waiting for the movies to begin.
Only an hour and a few minutes away from Lake of the Woods, Virginia is the Goochland Drive-In Theater, located at 4344 Old Fredericksburg Rd, Hadensville, VA 23067. This theater was started many years ago by a young family that wanted an affordable, family-friendly environment for the community to enjoy.
About an additional 30-40 minute drive than the Goochland Drive-In from Lake of the Woods is the Family Drive-In located at: 5890 Valley Pike, Stephens City, VA 22655. They opened in 1956 and are continuing 63 years of operation as of next year – wow! So really- they never “left”.
Both drive-ins offer two screens as well as the option for double-features or single features, and they are pet-friendly! They both allow you to bring folding chairs and blankets, if you’d rather sit outside of your vehicle and offer portable radios to listen to the movie. They both have snack bars with classic snacks and drinks available for purchase. Goochland Drive-In does not allow outside foods to be brought in, while the Family Drive-In will allow outside foods for a small fee.
Goochland’s prices for adults and children 12+ are $8.50 each compared to the Family Drive-In at $8 each for the same ages. Kids 4-11 $4 each at both. For Family Drive-In’s single feature price and Sundays, it’s $7 for adults and children 12 and up, while children 3-11 are $3 each. What a bargain! Double feature movies at a DRIVE-IN theater for the same price as a 1 movie ticket at a regular movie theater, how can you even compare?!
Each have their own rules and policies that you can find on their website along with any frequently asked questions.
Unfortunately, the season has come to an end, of course, due to colder weather in December, January and February, in Virginia. The season will start again in March. So be sure to follow them on Facebook or check their websites directly as March approaches for their updated movie schedule and prices: Goochland Drive-In and Family Drive-In.
