Auto 25 Drive In Movie - Greenwood / Old 96 District

Two double-features are screened nightly.
The old adage of going out for dinner and a movie is something more unique when in Greenwood, home to the Highway 25 Drive-In Theatre. Raise your hand if you have ever been to a Drive-In movie? Before June 25 I could not raise my arm, but after viewing Independence Day on Screen Two, I joined the ranks of those who had enjoyed the Auto 25, which opened in 1945. Movies begin playing around 9 p.m. and the price of admission is just $10 per person and they have a full-service snack bar available to enhance the overall experience.

Clean concession area is available for moviegoers.
Earlier that evening, we visited downtown Greenwood for a locally brewed beer and some wood-fired pizza at The Mill House. This brewpub keeps eight of their own beers on the list of draft beers including the Jibber Jabber Pale Ale, Carolina Sunrise Blonde, and the Blood Moon IPA. What goes better with beer than pizza and I enjoyed a 'white' pizza called Harris Mill with chicken, spinach and mushrooms. Every bite of that pie was tasty and these pizzas are sized to be individual meals.

The Mill House offers Good Times Brewery.
Looking for a place to stay the night after dinner and a movie in Greenwood? Try the Fairfield Inn and Suites on the 527 Bypass where you can find almost all of the chain lodging and restaurants in Greenwood. Free bottled water, an indoor pool and hot continental breakfast are some of the perks from staying with this Marriott partner hotel.
