We had a great time at the drive in. It's open, with a nice snack bar, and new movies for cheap prices. We had a blast and will look forward to the next time.

Two movies a night, food and popcorn etc available, it was great! You tune to a channel on our radio, some brought chairs to sit outside their vehicle. Bathrooms were available. Cheap, lots of locals, nothing fancy.

Amazing experience! For 15$, we got to watch the new Planet of the Apes and Logan. Make sure you bring bug spray.

Travel back in time to the good old days - good family fun! Definitely bring bug spray and a portable radio. Concession stand very reasonably priced with good variety of offerings. We had so much fun.

While visiting the Portland area we were looking for something different to do then the usual bar scene so we figured we would give it a try. Definitely worth checking out for those looking for a different experience - 15 for cars up to 3...More
