Cinema With A Skyline View: Catch A Film At Moonstruck Drive-In In Houston

See a movie under the stars at one of the most uniquely Houston movie experiences at Moonstruck Drive-In.

Can’t get enough al fresco cinemas? Located at Midway’s 150-acre East River development on 100 Bringhurst St., Moonstruck Drive-In screens a variety of 4K features on a 80 x 40-foot screen with a stunning skyline backdrop. [Featured image: @joyously.jo]

Using a 60-foot wide screen strewn across a stack of shipping containers, Moonstruck offers that classic drive-in vibe, while allowing local cinephiles to combine two of their favorite things: the city and the movies. Here, patrons are invited to park their automobiles, tune into FM transmission, and watch a variety of blockbusters, classic, and family friendly flicks.

In addition to a concession stand on site, Moonstruck also features a bar as well as a slew of rotating food trucks (on Saturday nights) for patrons to nosh on over the course of the feature.


Moonstruck announces their weekend program on Monday evenings. At the time of this article, their scheduled screenings include new blockbuster comic book features, Venom: Carnage and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, as well as horror thriller Don’t Breathe 2, Halloween all-time classic, Beetlejuice, animated sequel Addams Family 2, as well as Ryan Reynolds-starring comedy, Free Guy. For more details on their program, visit the website here.

Tickets to each movie are priced at $30 per car – which can be packed with as many as 6 per vehicle. If this is your first rodeo, you’re allowed to park your vehicle forwards or backwards, just ensure that the headlights are off. Patrons can sit in, immediately outside, or on the bed of a car/truck – just not on top. The show goes on rain or shine, pets allowed, and restrooms are available on site.
