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

I didn't think these places existed anymore. What a trip! We sat in a parking lot & watched a movie thru my windshield. The prices were MORE than reasonable (I think it was only $6 per person), & you can even catch a double feature. There is a snack bar too if you need it. The sound is broadcast via... More

Took my grand kids to see a kid flix. They had never been to a Drive-In or heard of one. Like all of Alexandria Bay, the drive-in takes you back in time. The two screens both have double features and the only thing missing from when you sat with your honey forty plus years ago is the window mounted speakers.... More

I have come here for years but I cannot believe how rude the employees were to us tonight during our visit. We tried to call several times before our arrival to determine whether or not they accepted debit cards and no one would answer the phones. Nothing on the website said cash only so we assumed we could pay with... More

One of the few remaining drive ins. Very popular so arrive early to get a decent spot. As with all drive ins bring insect repellent. Food choices are good if you don't bring your own & admission price is excellent. If you have to visit restroom go before or after intermission; very crowded.

Great value, beats paying $20/person to see the same movie at in door theater. The food is great. You can crossover to other screen to watch second movie.

One of the most beautiful places in New York State, bordering Ontario Canada is the Thousand Island Region. The beauty of the St. Lawrence River and the Islands is a breath taking sight. If you are a camper there is many camping sites to choose from. If you are a fishing sport person this river is full of the best... More
