About us

About Sunset Drive-in | Since 1948 the Sunset Drive-in Movie Theater in Hartford Michigan has been delighting movie-going family’s, couples, and friends. This drive-in is the sister drive-in to the 5 Mile Drive in Theater in Dowagiac Michigan and is one of only 9 drive-in theaters still in operation in Michigan.

The admission gate opens at 7 p.m and the first feature starts at dark. Throughout the summer season start time can vary. Come early and check out the concession, grab a Hot dog, Popcorn, and drinks, let the kids play at the playground. Enjoy a great family night.

We are open every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. *But on some special occasions we ARE open on Thursdays for midnight showings on newly released features!

Listen to the movie through your radio in your automobile, radio station 91.1 FM. If you don’t have a radio in your automobile we have a select few we can loan out, with an I.D or Driver’s License. There is no outside food or drink allowed in the Drive In Movie Theatre, this is because our selected food we sell in the concession stand is ‘Drive In Friendly’.

The Sunset Drive-in and 5 Mile Drive-in theaters are owned by Neal & Glenda Edwards. Neal and Glenda manage the theaters with their son Milton. The Edwards family hires summer help from the local community and even provides students the opportunity for fun and rewarding summer work.
