As a kid going to the drive in movie theater was a very special treat. I don’t know why, but there was just something fabulous about folding down the seats in the car, snuggling under blankets, eating movie theater popcorn & Junior Mints, while listening to the movie thru the car radio.


Unfortunately the days of the drive in movie theater have come & gone, leaving Orange County without a drive in to call it’s own. Luckily, Southern California has quite a few, for you to choose from. Following is a list of the closest drive in movie theaters to Orange County… making them practically Orange County Drive In Movie Theaters.
