Movie Night at the Swan Drive-In Theatre in Blue Ridge

Drive-in movie - Blue Ridge

Buttery popcorn, funnel cake, and a new film playing at the Swan Drive-in Theatre equals a memorable movie night in Blue Ridge. Built in 1955 by Jack Jones and H Tilley, the 67-year-old Swan Drive-in theater is a staple attraction in the North Georgia Mountains. Located near the Blue Ridge Community Theater and Mineral Springs Walking Trail, the Swan is one of only 4 drive-in movie theaters in the state and 310 drive-in theaters in the country! Family-friendly, this unique theater welcomes young and old to experience movies in a whole new (or classic) way. On your next family vacation, trip with friends, or group retreat, consider stopping by this historic drive-in in Blue Ridge, GA, to watch a movie together. If you’re looking for some fun but need to practice social distancing, this is the perfect pick! 

The Swan Drive-In Experience

Named after peaceful swans H Tilley saw in England before setting off to invade Normandy in World War II, the Swan Drive-in Theatre offers a relaxing movie experience (about 1 ½ hours from Atlanta). First-run movies are played, so it’s not your typical “old movie” drive-in. The Swan offers the modern drive-in experience. Restrooms are available, and on-leash pets are welcome!

Pull up to the box office for admission and drive through to a good parking spot. You can view the movie on the large movie screen from inside your car with audio playing over your car radio (105.5 FM) or beneath the starlit sky on chill on a blanket or the hood of your car with a portable radio. 

While grills and food deliveries are not allowed (as with any movie theater), you can bring your own movie snacks and drinks to enjoy with the film. Or head over to the concession stand for classic drive-in treats, like funnel cakes, hot dogs, and popcorn! Just note you can’t leave to pick up food and return to your spot. If you’re staying for a double feature, you’ll find plenty to fill up on!
