Here's a pop quiz...we all love movies don't we? Well, what is the BIGGEST movie theater screen in the entire USA?
If you said Bengies Drive-In Theater in Baltimore, you'd be right! Yep! This classic drive in experience is just waiting to give the family that retro movie experience, with the latest movie technology. The best of both worlds!
The screen at Bengie's Drive-In is 52 feet high, and 120 feet wide. That's pretty huge! This also means there isn't any cropping, so you get to enjoy the film just as it was supposed to be seen!
If kids haven't been to a drive-in theater before, it's certainly an experience they should have at least once!
On Friday and Saturday nights, the theater features a TRIPLE screening, from classic cartoons, to vintage trailers, and even from Dusk til Dawn shows!
You just have to sit back, relax in the comfort of your own car, and listen to the film on the designated radio frequency. Pretty amazing!
Bengies opened back in June, 1956, and since then, there have been thousands of family memories created. Their schedule changes with the sunset, and it also changes every week, so there is always something new to see.
They start with films rated G, PG or PG-13, so the kiddies can enjoy films at a good hour, before they might move onto the ones suited more for the older family members.
So grab that popcorn, sit back, and enjoy the feature. It's time to go back and enjoy movies how they used to be enjoyed! Get ready - the show is about to start!
$4 (Ages 4 to 10)
$5 late arrivals, but not always guarenteed

Healthy Eating You can bring your own food, but you need to obtain a permit before you arrive. They don't encourage this as your food purchase supports a great community experience that is part of history!

You can order Bengies memorabilia online!
You are in your own vehicle, so if you can manage access into that comfortably, you will be fine!
