Starting this week, John Carpenter's Halloween, Halloween 4, and Halloween 5 will be screening at select drive-in theaters. As reported by HalloweenMovies.com, the following drive-in theaters will be playing Halloween this week:

"Locations showing John Carpenter’s Halloween this week include include Hummel’s Drive-In in Winchester, Indiana, as well as EVO Entertainment locations in both San Antonio and Austin, Texas on 7/31. Additional drive-ins also showing Halloween include ones in Nashville, Tennessee (Montana Drive-in), Buffalo, New York (Kane Family Drive-in), Hartford and New Haven, Connecticut (Pleasant Valley Drive-in) and Westtown, New York (Warwick Drive-in)."

Similar to what we saw with Evil Dead, it's likely we'll see these screenings expand to additional theaters in the coming weeks. Drive-in theaters can request the films via CineLife:

"CineLife Entertainment® has partnered with Trancas International Films and Compass International Pictures to bring HalloweenHalloween 4 & Halloween 5 back to theatres and drive-ins worldwide.

In this original film, the villain, Michael Myers, has spent the last 15 years locked away inside a sanitarium under the care of child psychiatrist Dr. Sam Loomis. On October 30, 1978, Myers escapes and makes his way back home to Haddonfield, turning a night of tricks and treats into something much more sinister for three young women, including Laurie Strode, the star-making role for Jamie Lee Curtis. In 1988, Producer Moustapha Akkad breathed new life into the franchise with Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers (which is often ranked as one of the top films in the series), followed by Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers, both of which feature fan-favorite, Danielle Harris.

Halloween premiered in cinemas and on drive-in screens on October 25, 1978, changing the landscape of horror cinema. It stunned audiences worldwide and has since inspired countless films in the genre. In 2006, it was selected by the Library of Congress to be preserved in the U.S. National Film Registry for its cultural significance.

This is a restored and remastered digital print, created under the supervision of the world-renowned cinematographer, Dean Cundey."
