While indoor cinemas mull over reopening Monday, which is allowed as ordered by Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp earlier this week, Starlight Drive-In Theatres is now open nightly.

Atlanta’s drive-in theatre, at 2000 Moreland Avenue, announced the news on its Facebook late-afternoon Wednesday, April 22.

Starlight will reopen after shuttering earlier this month with its first showings at 9 p.m., according to the company’s website: Bad Boys For Life, Hunt, and Trolls World Tour

The theatre’s snack bar and flea market remained closed, however, and attendees “must view the movie from within your vehicle” and “practice social distancing at all times.”

“We wish to sincerely thank all our loyal customers for their continued support, and we look forward to better serving you in the near future when this present situation has passed,” Starlight wrote on Facebook.
