I love going to the outdoor the prices are reasonable and it feels like an awesome throwback experience. My only complaint would be I wish there were something to do about the mosquitoes so you didn't always have to sit with the windows closed but...More

Feels just like the drive-ins from the 50s. They play vintage music and a few cartoons before the show. Did not need to use our car radio as the speakers were good enough. If you're looking for a unique movie experience then come here!

Great spot for families, just like drive-ins of 50 years ago. Same entrance, concession stand, and playground in front of the screen. They have an express window for simple concessions like candy, popcorn, and soda. Go inside for more substantial food. They show the National...More

We took our kids (8, 5, and 2) here over the weekend (mid July, 2016) to see "The Secret Life of Pets". The show was the first of a double feature with "The BFG" playing second. Driving up, you're greeted by a large, nostalgic neon...More

Every time I go here ( once a year maybe) I wonder why I did. It is not cheap. Cost us $28 for a family of four. Food was another $30. You tune your car radio to a certain channel and turn up the volume....More

Discriminated against my jeep compass. They made us park in back with two or three empty rows in front of us. I tried to move and explained to them my jeep is as low as the cars next to me but refused to let me...More

I had been here years ago, but decided to take the kids as they had never been to a drive-in theater. We enjoyed the experience, and the prices were reasonable. It was nostalgic for me, and I felt more camaraderie with my fellow theater-goers than...More
