MIAMI, FL – OCTOBER 11: Moviegoers watch “Back to the Future” from the comfort of the vehicles at The Blue Starlite Mini Urban Drive-In on October 11, 2013 in Miami, Florida. Many traditional drive-in theaters around the United States have closed but the owner of The Blue Starlite held a grand opening for his small outdoor facility, which can accommodate 20 to 24 cars and has seats near the front of the viewing area, with hopes it will become popular in the urban core of Miami.

Movie theaters have been temporarily closed for a few months now, and recently there two drive-in theaters in the Bay Area have reopened. There’s the West Wind Solano Drive-In in Concord and the West Wind Capitol Drive-In located in San Jose.
