Catch a movie at a drive-in theater this summer

There are still a few around in Pennsylvania and South Jersey where you can watch this season's latest movie releases

Can't watch a movie without popcorn!

This summer, hop in the car and drive past your local AMC – you can go there anytime. Head to an old school drive-in theater to catch a double feature.

There aren't many places left where you can sit in your car and watch the latest releases, but we found three local spots still operating.

The experience is worth the drive to get there.

Delsea Drive-In Theatre

The Delsea Drive-In is located in Vineland, N.J., about a 50-minute drive from Philadelphia's Center City.

It has two screens which play double features and sometimes triple features, as well as tons of food optionsYou can also bring your own food, but you'll have to get a "food permit" from the box office for $20, because hey, it's pricy to run one of the last-standing drive-ins.

This summer, the theater is also letting pets in on "Pet Sundays."

Admission: $11 for adults and $6 for kids age 4 to 11

Shankweiler’s Drive-In Theatre

This spot also has a snack bar with candy, ice cream, burgers and more kid-friendly bites.

Admission: $10 for adults and $6 for kids age 3 to 12
