With kids or without, this drive in is so fun. Little kids play football, swing, throw frisbees and play on the equipment until dark. You can buy all the traditional snacks and candy or bring your own! I recommend dressing in layers and bringing big...More

Of course, drive in movies are not a new thing but for a generation that didn't get to experience the era, it's an amazing change of pace from the traditional movie theaters. Great date night destination.

Showboat Drive-In is definitely a great way to spend the evening with the kids. You can't beat the value ($6 for TWO movies!) and the employees are super nice. The concession area and restrooms were really clean. The food was typical concession fare - though...More

Great drive in movie place. We paid $7 for an adult ticket and got to see two brand new movies (Ghostbusters & The Shallows), great value. The only complaint I have is during the first movie (Ghostbusters) there was two-three blue lines that ran vertical...More

We seek out drive in movie theaters wherever we go, this is one of the true gems in a dying pop culture phenomenon. Good, reasonably priced concession food + two movies for the price of one in a chain theater...but you can't put a price...More
