Experience 7 of 52: Bengies Drive-In Theatre

Bengies Drive-In Theatre in Baltimore, MD opened June 6, 1956.  According to its website, the theatre features the biggest movie theatre screen in the USA measuring 52 feet high and 120 feet wide!  That is an amazing 6,240 square feet of screen!  The theatre typically holds a triple feature on almost every Friday and Saturday night.

On June 30th, Susan, Grace and Kate attended a showing of the Disney Pixar movie “Brave”.  This unique nostalgic experience was worth the time and we would definitely attend a future showing of a desirable movie.

You should know that the entry fee is cash only but the snack bar accepts both Visa and Mastercard.  You should also check out the Bengies website to read their FAQ.  Outside food is strictly prohibited unless you pay $10 for a permit.

Time Spent: about 3 hours (arrive early to get a good parking spot)
Cost: $17 for the show (1 adult and 2 children under 10) + Snack bar funds (about $20)
