A Family-Friendly Night Supporting the Sea Services

Candy, COSTUME parade and Back to the Future

Are you ready for a night out? Drive up, nestle in and enjoy the popcorn at our Navy League Nite at the Drive-In, an evening fall family event full of nostalgia as we screen a movie from the comfort and safety of your car. Bring the whole family, even your dog!

Our venue, the Family Drive-In Theatre, is located just outside Winchester, Virginia. It is one of the top 10 drive-ins in America and will give your family the original drive-in experience. This could be the perfect end of a pumpkin-hunting and leaf-peeping weekend. The event will be held rain or shine.

Special Precautions

We want you and your family to feel safe during this night away from home. We will be taking every precaution to be sure it will be a memorable and fun night. All staff and attendees will be required to wear masks when they are not in their vehicles. Families can order food to their cars from the concession stand using the Family Drive-In Theatre app. The costume parade will be socially distanced, and all events are occuring outdoors. We will have additional handwashing stations at public restroom facilities and will be limiting the number of individuals that are inside these facilities at once. Due to current restrictions there will be no tickets at the gate and a limit on the number of admissions.

If you have any special concerns about safety, please contact our events team.
