Christmas at the Drive-In is a heart-warming romantic comedy from 2022, starring Danica McKellar, Neal Bledsoe, and Jim Annan. The movie takes place during the holiday season, and centers around the dilapidated drive-in theater in a small town. The story follows the life of Maggie (Danica McKellar), a single mother who is struggling to make ends meet. Maggie works at the drive-in theater, trying to revive it after it's been closed for years, but the challenge is increasingly difficult as the economy changes and people opt for newer and more exciting entertainment options.

Enter Tom (Neal Bledsoe), who moves back to town after a long absence. He used to work at the drive-in as a projectionist and Maggie, who was his high school crush, hasn't seen him since he left.
