Since movie theaters aren’t operating at full capacity quite yet, drive-in theaters are proving to be a prime alternative for film lovers across the country. And Wisconsin just happens to be home to a handful of charming drive-in complexes that are showing a number of popular movies—both new and old—on a daily basis.
