While on vacation in the area we went to the drive in. The screen is nice, sound quality is good and the overall feel is safe. Great value for what you get. Even the concession prices were reasonable. An added plus was the other movie goers were polite and there to enjoy the movies.

We frequent the Bay Drive-In several times a summer. Compared to other drive-ins the sound quality is fabulous and admission and food are ver inexpensive. My kids love going...we even find ourselves going to the same movie twice in one weekend! This hidden gem is off the beaten path and a must visit on your next trip! Tip: Cash Only... More

If you want to see a movie thus summer look no farther than the Bay Drive In! The facility is amazing! Great food, nice employees, clean and inexpensive. If a new release is out, get there super early to get a good spot!

An old time drive-in with full digital picture. Great snack bar that serves meals and food that no other drive in would ever think of serving. Imagine clams at a drive in. Everything is clean and well kept. There is even a screened in area for the kids to sit in if they need to get out of the car.... More

I've been here numerous times and I always have a great time. The price can't be beat especially for 2 movies. The concession stand has a good variety and prices are very reasonable too. This is one of my favorite places to go during the summer.

My favorite thing to do. Up to date movies, great concession stand, new, clean. Some kind of food for everyone. Excellent prices, family affordability. Sound comes through radio, so no bugs!

Where else can you go for a double feature for $6? And have a choice of four movies on any given night. Concession is clean and offers a variety of foods at reasonable prices. The big screen is a must for those action thrillers - and tons of fun for the entire family (and pets!). Bring your pillows and blankets... More

This is an incredible drive inn. Latest movies and if you want you can sit inside and still see the movie outside. Two screens and reasonable admission make this a place not to be missed.

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
