What’s the next COVID-safe place to enjoy a movie outside your home? An outdoor one, of course! Watch the latest Korean movies on a wider screen at an outdoor theater. Head out to a drive-in movie theater in Cheonan. You’re in for a unique movie night experience. 

Drive-in Theater

This is has been gaining popularity in this pandemic era. It’s a good alternative while still following social distancing protocols. They are mostly scattered in bigger cities and Cheonan has one. Just search for 자동차극장 in your Korean navigation map.

It’s a pretty simple set up near the highway. It has two screening areas. Each can accommodate 50 cars. 

Ticket booth is right at the entrance. Directly next to it is the restroom and a small snack store. You can buy some chips, snacks and drinks there. You can also bring in food in your car. Just please be mindful of how you dispose any trash afterward. 

Tickets and Showtimes

As of this writing, no reservation is needed. Tickets can be bought on-site for 20,000 per car. You can just show up before the screen time at 7:00 or 9:40. It’s better to double check before heading out. Showtimes can change as per their website’s advisory. So please always check within 24 hours. 

Below is how a week schedule looks like for a regular Korean movie screening.

Movie passes are also available for regular movie fans. 

Your 5 tickets paid by cash can get you 1 free pass to use on weekdays. And 7 tickets paid by card can get you free pass to use on weekdays.

Good to note:

They usually screen Korean movies but currently, there is  foreign one running. It is an American comedy-horror flick. Showtime for such can change so do check their website

They can also accommodate 3-4 minutes “proposal events” if you are keen to arrange  one in advance. You can’t just ignore the Koreaness of the idea before watching your movie, right?

How to Get There

From Cheonan City Bus Terminal by car, it would only take about 20 minutes. You can drive via Nambudaero/Mokcheon IC heading to Hwaseongri. It’s also just about 10-15 minutes away from Sangrok Resort and Hong Dae Yong Science Museum if you also want to explore the area nearby.
