Remember when your parents took you to the outdoor theatre as a kid and what fun it was? Give that thrill to your kids at Big Sky Drive In. Perfect activity for families on a budget. Pack your picnic and bring it along or purchase food at the snack shack. Highly recommend this theatre.

Where else can you see first run movies. Two of them. With a grandson for $13. He had fun playing in the front until the movie started. The concessions are tasty and this is just a great place to chill out for a night

I would suggest calling ahead to see which movies are playing, they have two screens on opposing sides of a field that play different movies at the same time. Best part is.it's a two for one, if you get there for the first movie you can stay for the movie that follows. When we went we got to watch Suicide Squad and Don't Breath.
Get there like 30 min before dusk, there is a line to drive in. It works by pulling into a spot (all the spots are on a tiny upward slant so it's a better view of the screen) and tuning your radio to the correct AM station. It's as easy as that.
The front seats have the best view, if you're tall it's harder to see from the back seat. Suggestion bring chairs & blankets to sit outside next to your car instead of everybody staying in the car. If you leave the window down you'll be able to hear just fine from outside the car.
We loved it, can't wait to go back next year.

My friends and I (with our respective families) went out to try this drive in movie for fun and just for experience - a group of 18 all in all. The place is ok. The restrooms are clean which is a plus. It was our experience at the concession stand that made me say not to go back to this place again. The line was long at the concession stand, so when it was our turn to order, we decided to group our orders to make it easy for them. That was such a bad idea! The one in-charge in grilling ( we probably ordered 10-12 cheese burgers, a couple of hotdogs and 3 orders of fries and popcorns) decided to serve first the customers who ordered 2 - 3 burgers first since our orders were a lot. Guess how many customers ordered a couple of burgers? Maybe 8 or more! I don't think this is fair. His reasoning when asked is he wanted to give our orders together and since there is a lot of them so he decided to serve the customers who ordered 2- 3 burgers first. Guess what, we ended up missing a part of the movie, the last one waiting at the concession area and feeling maltreated. We knew that we could bring food and we could have eaten dinner somewhere before going there but I was thinking, while we were there, might as well try what they have and support their business. Wrong decision! Had we eaten our dinner first, we could have saved money, won't have this bad experience, and won't have missed a part of the movie. I just hope the management will look into this, not cool to treat customers like this at all who were just trying to support your business.
