There are times when you want to just unwind with a movie or show, and North Georgia has some amazing historic theaters including 2 of Georgia’s drive-in theatres!

 

Theaters in the North Georgia Mountains

According to the Swan Drive-In’s website:

To date there are a total of less than 250 Drive In Theaters operating with Digital Projection in the US and a total of 310 operating over all so visiting the Swan is a great opportunity to revisit the past or just to have a great time!

With the declining number of drive-in theaters it is nice to visit one while you have the opportunity. See a first-run film either from your car or sitting outside your car.
