Went with my husband to watch line survivor. First time at a drive-in. Didn't know what to expect. Great value. Only $8 per adult and if you bring children they're only $1! Didn't have to get dressed up. Brought our own snacks and relaxed as we watched movie. They do have a concession stand and restrooms available. Great experience! Can't... More

Not as nice as the Van Buren Drive Inn, but still fun! Drive Inns are a dying breed, I highly recommend you take in a movie at a Drive Inn before they are all gone!

We took all four kids to see a movie for under $20 bucks, picked up snacks ahead of time and arrived early enough to get a prime spot in the center by the snack bar. We had no problems with the sound, although we lost the picture midway through, it was fixed within minutes and backtracked so we didn't miss... More

As a very local resident of 60 years, I was very sorry to see the weekday and weekend swap meet crowd come into the neighborhood. The local streets are frequently congested with entire families, kids in tow, dashing across the street through traffic, tamale carts here and there, and lines of vehicles waiting in lines blocks long to push whatever...

If you can handle people being idiots and forgetting to turn off their lights or showing up late or smoking next to you then you'll love it. Really it's pretty fun. Pack your snackers and enjoy not taking out a loan to see a new movie.

I took my mother to TRY and watch Oz on Friday night and upon entry, the man at the front told us it was a great film, so naturally we were even more excited. Once we got in the film started late and the sound was wretched! The film was out of focus. Another patron came by our car and... More

Had a terrible experience at the Rubidoux Drive-In this evening. The second showing had terrible garbled sound and the picture was almost impossible to see during many parts due to poor contrast. Made a polite request to one of the employees to have the projectionist check on it, and was told that that they'll "see what they can do." 20... More
