Description

The Capri Drive-In is located on US-12, just west of downtown Coldwater in Southwest Michigan. Some of you folks may remember that US-12 was once the main route from Detroit to Chicago, with Coldwater acting as the halfway point. There are many classic sites to see along the way, none more beautiful than the Capri Drive-In, which was built and opened by John (Sr.) and Mary Magocs in the summer of 1964. 

The Capri utilizes a single, 2-sided ticket booth which provides for 2 entrance lanes into the 2 screen theater lot which can hold about 900 cars. The driveway and the south side median of US-12 act as a holdback area for the dozens of cars that are lined up before the theatre opens. The line has been known to be over 1/2 mile long during the busy summer months! At the ticket booth you will be furnished with one of our flyers which will give you information such as the radio frequencies for each screen and other useful facts and tips. Please note that every Tuesday is carload night, with a flat $20 charged for each vehicle, regardless of the number of occupants.
