Missing movie theaters in COVID-19 quarantine? Fill up the car and head to these drive-ins

The country is starting to open up after months of lockdown, yet social distancing and sanitary precautions are still important as ever. And although theater chains like AMC are gearing up to return in July, taking in a drive-in movie may sound appealing, especially for families.
