The Stardust Drive-in theater opened in 2008 just north of Chetek, Wisconsin. It’s in a nice, wooded location alongside US 53 (see map below for access). A very nice drive-in, with a good selection of food at the snack bar. A unique ticket booth, and a trolley for the family to ride on.
A second screen has been added more recently.
August 2008: Movies for the night were “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” and “Hellboy 2”. Really nice weather, and a full moon.

How to get to the Stardust Drive-in theater
NOTE: There is no access to County OO from US 53. The road to the drive-in is the first left after going over US 53, if going westbound on County OO.
