I grew up with drive in theatres. There fewer and farther between as the years go by. Starlite Drive-In is clean, well lit twin theatre. They also have radio signal sound, so you can listen through your car stereo system.

Wow, a blast from the past that was awesome! Only $13 for a car load, sound quality if you use radio channel was great. Absolutely loved the whole experience! Two screens with 3 movies for $13? (Including one screen for kids movies) Yes please!

This is not only a great value and time for couples, families and friends. The food is great for a drive in and the prices are great. Movies are usually great picks and pairings. This is a must when they are open.
