This isn't just a drive-in theater. It's an EXCELLENT drive-in theater. First-run movies, two screens, reasonable admission price, and a concession area so extensive that you may consider skipping a meal in town and just eating there. Also, screen #1 has a screened-in seating area for those who don't want to sit in their cars. Take in a little piece... More

This place is awesome. Bring your bug spray, but this place is the best drive in ever! They have awesome food in the concession area, and the reception is now awesome. The kids like it too!

Saw Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and it was great. Price for seniors is $4.00 each and you get 2 movies. Place was packed because the movie was on the opening night. I would bring mosquito netting to put over the windows so you could leave them open and get some fresh are. Saw a lot of people... More

My family has vacationed in the thousand islands area (we stay at black lake) since my grandparents got married. Because of this, I have been going to this drive in since i was a teenager. Over the years they have made many improvements, including going from reel to digital several years ago. In a time where it costs over 20... More

When I was a summer resident of Alexandria Bay New York I would take the family to the Bay Drive-In Theater a couple times a month. They always had first run movies and a lot of your friends will be in the cars around you. If you prefer a theater seat they also had a screened in area at the... More

My kids and I love to visit the Bay Drive-In when we are in the North Country. I didn't know it existed until about 2 years ago and I feel like I've been missing out. The movies are affordable and the food at the snack bar is not that expensive. I love the fact that I can take myself and... More

The cash only policy helps keep the price down. Those who complained about how close cars are must really hate theaters. Bugs? Sure but if you plan ahead bug spray and a shear fabric for car windows works great. You can set your own sound level, bring food and drinks that you want, or buy treats there.

Cashier was very unpleasant and rude. You cant leave the windows down or sit outside or you will get eaten alive by mosquitoes. Cant use a credit card, must have cash only. Black river drive ins is so much more professional and no bugs, they accept cards, and the quality of the movie projection on the screen is so much... More
