INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Inside INdiana Business) – Visit Indiana has released its newest #The20IN20 list. The ninth list in the organization’s series unveils 20 of the Hoosier state’s top drive-in movie theaters.

Visit Indiana’s The 20 IN 20: Sit Under the Stars at These Drive-In Theatres in Indiana list features the Auburn Garrett Drive-In in Garrett, the Tibbs Drive-In in Indianapolis, and the Tri Way Drive-In in Plymouth.

“The State of Indiana has the fourth largest number of drive-in theaters still in operation in America,” said Misty Weisensteiner, director of Indiana Office of Tourism Development.

The organization says drive-in theaters are making a comeback as Hoosiers search for ways to watch the latest flicks while social distancing amid the coronavirus. Visit Indiana says many of the state’s drive-in theaters are making changes to accommodate visitors.

“From parking cars at least six feet apart to pre-purchasing tickets to concession stand adjustments, theater owners are making changes to keep visitors safe and healthy,” said Lieutenant Governor Suzanne Crouch.
