Great deal

Drive in is cool and offers showing for all new movies. Must get there early though. Cheap pricing and a variety of food for good prices at the snack bar.

2 adults two kids under 10 for 20 bucks and you get TWO movies. Great value. Sound is as good as your car speakers and they don't give you grief for putting out lawn chairs. Snacks are cheap but you can bring your own food as well.

Didn't even know that drive in movies still existed, so we were delighted to find this one. It's easy to find in Riverside and well signposted. Take your own food and drink. For the full experience also take cushions and park facing away from the screen and sit on your tailgate. Good value at less than ten bucks per person... More

This is a greeeat old style theatre with several screens. We always bring snacks,pizza and popcorn.The posted signs say no chairs but we like to put an airbed in a pick up and watch with pillows under the stars. Its NEVER crowded so you always get the best seat in the house!

Used to love those drive-in theatres growing up and this is the perfect spot to go back to the old days. Very affordable price as well. Loved the food - authentic Mexican food.

This is the original type of drive in. Nothing fancy. No upgrades, just flat areas to park or sit outside the car

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
