Outdoor and Drive-In Movies in Omaha and Surrounding Areas

A week doesn't go by where someone says they miss the old Council Bluffs Drive-In out by Manawa. Watching movies under the stars, crammed into the back of a car with speakers hanging on your window is an amazing experience. Something we want our kids to enjoy. We have a Backyard Movie Screen and projector to recreate that experience in our backyard, but it's not the same. It's awesome, but it's not that same. For me, nothing will ever replace the original Drive-In but, there are several places to enjoy Outdoor Movies in Omaha, and the surrounding areas.
