VOTED WCCO BEST OF MINNESOTA 2013 & 2018
x Proudly serving central Minnesota since 1956.
x Welcome to The Long Drive-In Theatre! We have been a favorite summer destination for central MN for over 65 years. Generations of theater-goers have had the opportunity to enjoy movies under the stars from the comfort of their car, lawn chair, or blanket.
x The Long Drive-In was built in 1956 by Tillie Smith from Sauk Centre. The theater had several owners throughout the years (VanKempen '65, Zastrow '73, Eldred '79) before finding a permanent home with Cliff & Laurel Meier in 1985. Cliff & Laurel, along with the dedication and hard work of their grandchildren, lovingly ran the Drive-In from 1985 to 2013 when the theater was purchased by their daughter Michelle and husband Dan.
