We've spent a lot of time indoors thanks to the pandemic. With all of this warm weather we've been having, it's time to get out and have some fun. Even though we have the luxury of going back to the movie theaters, sitting inside may not seem so nice. If you want to get that movie experience without being coupped up indoors for a few hours, cruise on over to the drive-in. In fact, if you're in the mood for a short road trip, there's a brand new drive-in theater opening this weekend.

According to KCCI, the grocery giant Hy-Vee has teamed up with HD On the Go Big Screen to set up a new drive-in theater. The theater will be located in the old Younkers parking lot at Valley West Mall in West Des Moines. That's about a two-hour drive from Cedar Rapids. The report states that opening night for the new drive-in is this Sunday, June 6.
