April 9, 2024

Remember the excitement of piling into the car with friends or family, armed with blankets and snacks, ready for a night of cinematic magic under the stars? That’s the timeless charm of Silver Moon Drive-In Theatre.

Last night, we had a fun little date night and saw Ghostbusters Frozen Empire at the Silver Moon Drive-In. We highly recommend it if you’re local to Lakeland, Florida, but any drive-in will be just as fun!


In the heart of Lakeland, Florida, lies a gem of cinematic nostalgia: the Silver Moon Drive-In Theatre. Nestled amidst palm trees and warm Florida breezes, this iconic spot offers an unforgettable movie experience reminiscent of a bygone era. It has been open for more than 75 years!

As you pull into the parking lot, you’re immediately transported to a time when drive-in theaters were the epitome of entertainment. The towering screen looms ahead, promising hours of cinematic delight under the twinkling night sky.

One of the unique charms of the Silver Moon is its retro concession stand, complete with classic movie snacks like popcorn, soda and candy. It’s like stepping back in time as you peruse the offerings and choose your treats for the evening.

Once you’ve stocked up on snacks, it’s time to settle in for the main event. Tune your car radio to the designated frequency, roll down your windows, and recline your seats as the magic of the silver screen comes to life before your eyes. We brought pub subs and snacks for the movie and, of course, lots of blankets and pillows!

The one thing I sure I wish I had for this movie though was this nostalgic drink!

Whether you’re catching the latest blockbuster release or enjoying a timeless classic, there’s something special about watching a movie under the stars. The atmosphere at the Silver Moon is electric, with families, friends, and couples all coming together to share in the cinematic experience. They change their four movie times weekly. I thought it would be fun to see Ghostbusters there since it has that nostalgic feel!

And it’s not just about the movies. The Silver Moon Drive-In Theatre hosts special events throughout the year, from double features to themed movie nights. Whether it’s a horror marathon for Halloween or a romantic comedy extravaganza for Valentine’s Day, there’s always something exciting happening at this beloved Lakeland institution.

As the credits roll and the night comes to an end, you’ll leave the Silver Moon with a smile on your face and memories to last a lifetime. So next time you’re looking for a unique and unforgettable movie-going experience, make sure to head to Lakeland’s Silver Moon Drive-In Theatre.
