Are there any Drive-in Movie Theaters


in or around the Baton Rouge\New Orleans area

My wife and young son are wanting to go to a drive in movie and I am wondering if there are any still left around here?

I know this doesn't help you, but the only Drive in Movie Theater that I've seen still in operation is in Midland, TX.

Perfectly aware of the the year. They just wanted to go experience something that will not be around in another 10-15 years.

I know man.. I am 30 and dont recall BR having a drive inn, but I hear stories about them and it has been awhile since there has been one around here. Honestly, I wish they had one just to have something different, but unfortunately we dont.

Bossier City had one until 1978 until the F4 Tornado leveled it and the land was used for the Bossier mall

I used to enjoy poking around the abandoned drive-in theatres. The one I remember best (as abandoned, anyway) was the old Rebel Drive-In, which was at the corner of Government Street and Rebel Drive (which has now been renamed to something else) - it's just south of the Baton Rouge Community College site which fronts on Florida. The Showtown Drive-In I remember from being open - it closed sometime in the late 1980s, I think. There might still be something there to explore - it was on Airline Hwy., in the northwest quadrant of Airline and Sherwood...between Sherwood and the Capitol Buick/Pontiac dealership.

There is one in Hattiesburg MS. But I think Katrina took it out. I can not get a conformation that it is closed, I was just wondering if there were any closer?

I would much prefer the Stadium seating theater.


I hope all you guys know that I am just trying to satisfy the wife and kid, plus it seems like it would be cool.
