Drive-ins: Still going strong around Miami!

One of these popular sites has moved to Wynwood!

The drive-in experience shows no sign of slowing down, with nontraditional venues transforming into open-air theaters.  Popularized in the 1950s and ’60s, these drive-in options provide a retro feel and much-needed entertainment after months of quarantine.
