At least we still have Drive-in movies, amirite?
With a lot of events and festivals cancelled this fall, with the exception of all these fall things to do, and indoor movie theater opening dates currently in limbo, we’re leaning hard on these Drive-in options to step out and enjoy our lovely WNY fall weather.
Read on to find out where you can catch a drive-in for the rest of the fall around WNY.

1. Transit Drive-In Movie Theatre

6655 S Transit Rd, Lockport, NY 14094
The Transit Drive-In has been doing the most all summer to keep WNY occupied, with live music, movies, and more. Now that it’s fall, they’re offering free football game viewings and ask that you support their concession stands in return for the the epic opportunity to gather with friends and fans for some primetime viewing. Oh and they’re also still showing actual movies.

2. Dark Alley Drive In

1001 Hertel Avenue Buffalo, NY 14216
This is a pop-up drive-in movie series happening on Hertel Ave. in the former K-mart parking lot of all places. Tickets are $10 per car, plus an online ticketing fee of $2.00 and movies are showing Thursday – Saturday. The films start a little after 9pm and the film’s soundtrack is available through FM radio. They’re also offering fun pop-up food stand options most nights like What’s Pop-in Gourmet Popcorn and Moneybag Dumplings. Plus, you’re welcome to BYO food and drinks, so that’s a huge win. Stay tuned to their Facebook page for updates and learn more about the series here and get tickets here.
