Drive-In Concerts In Scranton

Do you miss going to concerts?  Well, why don’t you try going to a concert at a drive-in movie theater?  You won’t have to worry about being packed in a crowded auditorium.  You can enjoy entertainment in a safe way in your own vehicle with your family and/or friends.

Located in Scranton Pennsylvania, the Circle Drive-In theater opened in 1945.  It is one of the longest-running drive-ins in the United States.  

The Circle Drive-In received the 2019 Readers’ Choice Award from the Scranton Times-Tribune.
