Tucson has been without a consistent drive-in theater since the De Anza Drive-In closed in 2009. But, during the summer of 2020 as the coronavirus pandemic shutdown conventional movie theaters and physical distancing made it difficult to people to gather, the drive-in theater made an unlikely comeback. Locations opened up across Tucson to show old movies, concerts and live sporting events. The interest from the public has drive-in operators planning to keep these theaters open even as life returns to normal.
