Throwback Fun

Vali-Hi Drive-In

Vali-Hi Drive-In, the last operating drive-in around the Twin Cities, brings ‘60s neon vibes with a side of popcorn and summer breeze. Celebrating 55 years of family fun, Vali-Hi offers double features, concessions and a retro arcade—a space that’s usually open, but has been closed due to COVID-19.

With a nostalgic atmosphere for movie-goers, especially those who grew up before the time of streaming and mainstream movie theaters, Vali-Hi welcomes families for a “vintage” night out. Read more about Throwback Fun
