Let’s Go to the Drive-in Movies


Redfield, South Dakota

Admission is $7.00 per person.
Kids under 11 are free.

I know nothing about either of these features.

You want something from the snack bar before the movie starts?

If you gotta go potty you better go now.

The current owners acquired the drive-in in 2014 and converted it over to digital with laser projection.

These speakers look original.  
You remember using them?
You can tune your car radio to 90.3 FM also to listen.

No one is here yet.  Where do you want to park?

Up close...

...or back here?

Wake me when it’s over.

Built in 1953 the Pheasant City Drive-in was the fourth one established in South Dakota.
Five drive-in theaters survive to this day in South Dakota.

I love being in a camper at a drive in, but you have to park at the back!

I love this post, I LOVE movies!

I lived next door to a drive-in until I was 6 and we could see and hear the movies from our yard. Where I live now there is a drive-in about 12 minutes from us, it's been there since March 9, 1950. I started going there in '99.

On now are Minions: The Rise of Gru and Jurassic World Dominion
Ticket Prices are 10+ is $7, 4-9 is $3,and under 4 years is free.

Now you've got me wanting to go, maybe I'll go Thursday! I want to see the Jurassic movie.

Did you camp there for the night and watch a movie?
All the drive-ins around Seattle are now Costcos-Home Depot, etc. The dirt was too valuable, among other factors.
