Outdoor movies make a comeback across Montana

MISSOULA – Montana movie theaters are thinking outside the box office, literally, to bring entertainment to people while also providing social distance.

Outdoor theaters and drive-ins are popping up across the treasure state.

One outdoor theater in the works will be behind Missoula’s iconic Roxy Theater in the alley. Right now construction is underway to transform the small parking lot into a charming walk-up cinema where people can enjoy films in lawn chairs with string lights twinkly above.
