Circle Drive-In

Grab your popcorn, soda, and snacks, and experience the magic of cinema at the Circle Drive-In! Home to the only drive-in movie theater in Lackawanna County and two giant screens (one being the largest movie screen in Pennsylvania), the Circle Drive-In Theatre is one of the longest-running drive-ins in America, opening in 1949. 


Circle Drive-In is more than a theater! On weekends from March until November, it hosts the largest outdoor flea fair market and farmers market in NEPA, the Circle Flea Fair. Prepare for fun and frights at the Circle of Screams during the Halloween season, a haunted attraction in the woods behind the big screens! The Circle Drive-In also hosts various film and music festivals and many more special events throughout the year!
