Fly-In Theater

Last year’s biographical film highlighting Medal of Honor recipient Tom Hudner and Jesse Brown leads this year’s impressive schedule of aviation movies at the Fly-In Theater during EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2023. The Fly-In Theater is part of the daily schedule at the 70th EAA fly-in convention on July 24-30 at Wittman Regional Airport.

For more than 15 years, the Fly-In Theater has been a tradition for AirVenture attendees. Located adjacent to EAA’s Camp Scholler campground, the Fly-In Theater provides the perfect opportunity to relax after a long day of air shows, exhibits, and workshops. The nightly movies are shown on a five-story high movie screen and introduced by personalities ranging from aviation legends to Hollywood superstars. The Fly-In Theater is presented by Lycoming and supported by Southwest Airlines.
