With movie theaters still shut down to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, drive-ins continue to be a prime option for catching a flick. From family-friendly cartoons to laugh-out-loud comedies and classic horror, here’s a look at the upcoming drive-in showings in metro Detroit.

Canterbury Village Drive-In Powered by Emagine 

The Canterbury Village drive-in theater features a single 14-foot by 32-foot, high-resolution LED screen and offers sound via car radio systems. Tickets can be purchased online, and pricing is based on the number of people per vehicle. It is $20 for up to four people per car, $25 for up to five, and $30 for up to six. On Wednesday nights, guests can choose to pay $10 more to upgrade to a double feature. No coolers or outside food or drink are allowed, but the C-Pub Bar & Grill at Canterbury Village is open to drive-in attendees. As part of the theater’s COVID-19 safety protocols, capacity is limited, and guests must stay in their designated area.
