Visited here for the first time back in 2015. We were rather excited to go as we had never experienced a drive in movie. The movie location is just a dusty field in Lakeland. Make sure you turn up early as the queues for food are massive we had 20 mins to go until the movie was shown and I... More

I love this place and try to go often. First run movies at yesterday's prices and double features!! Snack bar offers all the usual movie snacks plus more at great prices. Bathrooms are a little run down but functional. Sound runs off your own car stereo but they still have the old sound boxes in some spots if you need... More

Great experience for the price! The roads and surrounding buildings could use a little bit of touching up but the overall quality of the movie and sound is great. If you're going to see a popular blockbuster make sure to arrive early because the place does sell out quickly.

I love going to the movies and the Drive Inn is something my grandparents used to take me too many years ago. It is so special to think that I can still enoy this type of movie and even give this memory to my grandchildren. What makes it even better is you have 2 current movies at each screen and... More

We love the SMD. $5 per adult $1 per child - you cannot beat that for value. I also don't think the concession stand prices are too bad either but you can bring along your own refreshments if required. The restrooms are not the most modern but clean adequate for the job in hand :-) All the staff are friendly... More

We drove an hour from Orlando to this place and it was well worth the trip. Two films for $5 per person. If you want to experience a real American drive-in, you should definitely give it a try. There is a food and drink area which is reasonable priced. Pizza, drinks and a film in the comfort and privacy of... More

Love this place. Not only does it bring you back in time, with rising cost to see movies these days, this place is the best. They show current movies and are extremely cheap! We love bringing our little ones in their jammies. Also, we don't have to worry about our kids disturbing anyone else trying to watch. They are contained... More

Adults are $5 Children $1 I mean you just can't beat it. Plus if you remember a drive in like I do when I was a child it's a great nostalgic thing to do with your family. Very friendly staff and they always play the new releases! Tonight we went to see hotel Transylvania 2 and my daughters love the... More

I am so pleased that we were able to enjoy this drive in movie theatre. There are very few left in the USA and if you have the opportunity to go - it is a must. Everyone is polite to the other drivers e.g. no large vehicle block the view of smaller ones. You can buy popcorn and sodas at... More
