CULLMAN, Ala. – Throwback Outdoor Cinema is a new drive-in theater that opened in Cullman the first weekend in December. Brandi and Seth Powell, of Cullman, started the theater showing Christmas films at the Cullman County Fairgrounds. Seth and Brandi began the theater with just the two of them. They said they had always wanted to start a drive-in and just recently found the time to do so. The theater has shown “Home Alone 2: Lost in New York,” “Dr. Suess’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas” and will show “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation” tonight, Dec. 23.

The Powell’s plan to continue their drive-in theatre in the summer with classic throwback films from the 70s, 80s and 90s. They serve Kernel Kullman’s popcorn, hot chocolate, theater candy and bottled sodas at the concession stand. There are designated rows for different types of vehicles, with the smallest cars in the front row.

The Powell’s hope their theater will be a fun new activity in Cullman for the whole family to participate in throughout the year.
