Love Drive-in Movies? The only other Drive-ins we are aware of in the Bay are West Wind Drive-In theaters in Concord and San Jose which operate 7-days a week for $8.25 a film (including for double features) and have $5.50 tickets on Tuesdays. There is also the free “Renegade Drive-In” in Novato which runs on Saturday nights and starts back up again on June 6th.
