After you eat, stay for awesome family activities before the movies. Get your face painted wacky, jump in the bounce house, sing your heart out to karaoke, and challenge your friends in volleyball or corn hole. There is something for everyone, and it is sure to be a blast! And it’s not a celebration without PRIZES. Win FREE tickets to over 10 Attractions in the Valley and more courtesy of the Kids Trail!

Pack your car ready for a tradition tailgate, with lawn chairs, pillows, and blankets to get comfy. Then once the sun goes down, discover the magic of the “movies under the stars” by staying for not one, but two featured films that will entertain the whole family! Showtime begins at 9PM for the first feature, while the second movie normally begins around 11pm. After this party, you will discover why the Family Drive-In is a local gem and one of Go Blue Ridge Travel’s favorite destinations.
FamilyDriveinfamilyunderblanketsThe Family Drive-In is one of the most popular tourism locations that draws people into the Shenandoah Valley and allows you and your family to step back in time to the 50’s and 60’s when drive-in theaters were all the rage. Though they use the same speakers and screens as back then, they show today’s lastest movies, like Finding Dory or Independence Day Resurgence. With two difference screen options to fit all types of movie watchers, the drive-in is a one of a kind experience you can’t find anywhere else but the Shenandoah Valley!
