Great value for the money...two shows for $7.50/person! Get in close to when the gates open, usually 8pm, for primo parking. Bring a soccer ball, football, or baseball & gloves to entertain the kids before the movie starts. Great retro experience for all to enjoy.

While eating dinner at the Golden Corral, I found out that there was a drive inn within a short distance from the restaurant so quite naturally I went to check it out. I couldn't believe how nice and clean it was. The thing I liked...More

We always try to get to the drive in at least a couple times per year, if nothing else for nostalgia. This is a wonderful location, and we always have a good experience. Management does a great job with making everything family friendly. Nothing like...More

Great way to spend a summer evening! 2 movies for the price of less than one at a "regular" theater. For $7.50 you get a double feature on screen 1 or 2 or you can mix and match one on each screen. Movies are listened...More

Good place for a drive in movie and cheap. Watched the movies and enjoyed a night with some friends. It was just what you would expect, nothing too special, but an enjoyable place for a movie with a friendly staff.

Head to the drive in to find out why these theaters were once so popular. Enjoy a double feature from the comfort of your car or bring your lawn chairs and sit outside. Cost of admittance for two shows is less than you'll pay at...More
