Why Beaufort’s Hwy 21 Drive-In Theater is Your Perfect Date Night Spot

Just off of Highway 21 on the way into Beaufort lies a relic of the past. The Highway 21 Drive-In is one of the best date night spots in town. Locals and visitors, friends and families, and people from all over come together in the warm Lowcountry evening to watch a movie in their cars. Whether you want to catch the latest flick while socially distancing or just want a romantic night with your favorite person, the Highway 21 Drive-In is the place to be in Beaufort.  

The Details

It’s just like you remember it. A grassy lawn with a large white screen surrounded by a rim of trees. You can pull into your spot, set up a cozy area in your car or truck bed, and watch a movie under the stars. Movies are shown each Friday, Saturday, and Sunday night with the ticket office and concessions opening at 6:00 and the first movies being shown around 8:30 after the sun goes down. For just $7 per person you can kick back, relax, and watch a movie with your favorite person.   

New Box Office Hits + Old All Time Classics

Get the best of both worlds with a mix of the newest movies to come out or take a trip down nostalgia lane and watch one of your old favorites. Films like Forrest Gump, Indiana Jones, and Space Jam usually take up one of the screens while the other is used for the latest Marvel hits, animated movies, and modern classics. There is always something playing that you’ll want to see. 

Treat Yourself

You don’t have to wait until carnival season to enjoy your favorite American comfort food. The on-site concession stand will whip you up a melty cheeseburger and creamy milkshake, a classic root beer float, or one of their to-die-for funnel cakes topped with ice cream and fudge sauce. Don’t worry, they always have an excess of popcorn for movie snacking too. To get your treats, you can get an order form for the concession stand online or from the Cuthbert House Inn, make your selections and turn it in at the ticket window when you arrive and they will call your cell phone when your order is ready.   

End Your Date Night at Cuthbert House

After the credits start rolling and it’s time to head back to town, return to your comfortable accommodations at The Cuthbert House Inn, only 10 minutes away from the theater. Whether you catch the 8:30 film or the 10:30 showing, you can rest assured that coming home to a plush bed in a historic mansion where you can fall asleep to the sounds of the bay will be the perfect way to end your evening.  Want to catch a movie at Beaufort’s drive-in theater?
