I think all of us have a case of spring fever. We want to be outside and do stuff! We've been deprived for over a year. Going to a movie at the Verne Drive-In in Luverne, Minnesota is an annual tradition for many. It's been the destination for families, first dates, birthday parties, and more.

The Verne Drive-In is set to open for the season on Friday, April 23, 2021. The premiere movie of the season on Friday, April 23 and Saturday, April 24 is Godzilla vs. Kong (PG-13) followed by Wonder Woman 1984 (PG-13). Gates open at 7:00, show starts at approximately 8:50.

Some of the most anticipated movies this summer include Black Widow starring Scarlett Johansson and William Hurt. Kids will love the new animated/live-action movie Space Jam: A New Legacy Movie starring LeBron James and Bugs Bunny. It's not a direct sequel, but more of a relaunch for Suicide Squad. The movie's director and writer, James Gunn, wrote the script with a new cast of characters and actors. Only a few characters return.

The Verne Drive-in always has a great selection of movies to satisfy all ages and you know those summer blockbusters are going to be on the schedule.

You won't go hungry while you're watching a movie at the Verne Drive-in. Indulge with hot, buttery popcorn, beverages, smoothies, cheeseballs, pretzels with cheese, corndogs, burgers, ice cream, cotton candy, and more! Is it wrong that I go to the Verne Drive-In mainly for the food?

The Verne Drive-in is still one of the most affordable summer fun things to do. Ages six and up only pay $7 at the gate. Kids 5 and under get in free.

The Verne Drive-In is just over a half an hour from Sioux Falls at 1607 S. Kniss Ave. in Luverne, Minnesota. Check out their website or Facebook page for more info on this summer's movies.
