Today, the world of IMAX, high-definition, and 3D dominates the movie-goers’ cinematic experience. In addition, you have to find affordable parking for your rent a car in Manhattan. However, the older drive-in theatre is still in style. At a drive-in, you are not crammed in like sardines, but can stretch out in the comfort of your own car. On top of that, drive-in theatres are often more affordable, showing two movies at a lower cost than a regular theater would charge. In addition, you could take your rent a car in Manhattan and drive it to any of these locations. Parking is not included.
Hyde Park Drive-In
Operating since 1949, this theater boasts a single 82-foot wide projection area and accommodates nearly 700 cars. If you’re a history or politics buff, down the road is Springwood, the home of Franklin D. Roosevelt, which has no become a historical site. Artefacts, such as his custom-modified Ford convertible are showcased there. For the locomotive enthusiasts, two miles away is the restored 1914 Hyde Park train station, which displays working model trains. Hyde Park drive-in is located just 90 short miles away from New York City and easily accessible with your rent a car in Manhattan.
Located in Poughkeepsie, it is easily accessible with your rent a car in Manhattan, and is located 10 minutes off the parkway. Like the Hyde Park drive-in, Overlook drive-in has been open since 1949. It has an expansive 100 foot screen and is situated on a 17 acre lot, surrounded by trees, giving the grassy lot a secluded feel. Bring your family and await dusk while enjoying a round of mini-putt golf at the nearby Overlook Golf and Recreation Center. Another great idea is the Trevor Zoo, located in Millbrook. The Trevor Zoo is the only zoo in America that’s housed on a high school campus and has 180 adorable critters to gaze at. Nearby is the Millbrook diner, which is boxcar-style and even boasts its own jukebox. Take a ride with your rent a car in Manhattan and check out the Overlook Drive-in and all of its nearby attractions.
Unlike the two previous drive-ins, the Warwick has two screens on 11 acres. While this is a tad smaller on space, it is large on entertainment, playing a half-dozen nightly features – well worth the trip with your rent a car in Manhattan. If you’re waiting for the movie to start, check out the little village of Warwick and allow your kids ot explore the Toy Chest or Sweetbriars Chocolate and Confections. Alternatively, Mt. Peter offers dessert with a lovely view and homemade sorbet and ice cream. However, leave room for raiding the snack-bar at the Warwick Drive-in!
