Best Theater, Suburbs

Bengies Drive-In Theatre

3417 Eastern Blvd., (410) 687-5627,

Posted 9/16/2009

You know why everybody all over the city is doing "movies under the stars" or whatever else they're calling it? Because seeing a movie at the drive-in absolutely rules, that's why, and they're trying to recreate the experience. It's a blast to watch a movie outside, and we support the outdoor-flick initiative, but you can bring your whole freaking car to the Bengies, packed with all the people, lawn chairs, blankets and comfy stuff you want. If you are un-American and for some reason don't like drive-in food, you can buy your group an "outside food pass" for $7 and eat your own stuff while you view a brand-new release, not just some "classic," and on Fridays and Saturdays it's usually a triple feature; three movies for a general admission fee of anywhere from $5-$8, and, if you get there early enough--before the cartoon--you get to hear D. Vogel, the owner of the Bengies, address the crowd in his own inimitable fashion. There is no experience like it. Plus, you can smoke.
