Atlanta’s drive-in theater opens as businesses contemplate reopening

As many businesses contemplate reopening Friday, Atlanta’s drive-in theater aired its first set of movies since the coronavirus pandemic forced it to close. 

Starlight Drive-In, located at 2000 Moreland Avenue, reopened Wednesday, according to its Facebook page. Attendees must remain in their car and practice social distancing while at the theater.

The snack bar will not be open. 

DeKalb County ordered the theater to shut down March 27, when the county announced its shelter-in-place order. 

A flea market operated on the property will remain closed. Showtimes for the theater can be found on the Starlight website.
