This is a great find in the North Georgia mountain town of Blue Ridge. Open every night during the summer with double features of late first run movies. The concession building is old and could use an update or at least a sprucing up, especially the bathrooms. Food items are so-so at best but worth the money. Make sure you... More

It was fun watching a movie at the Swan Drive In! The price is so reasonable $8 for a double feature! You can bring your lawn chairs and sit under the stars to watch if you want. Bring your portable radio to tune in or listen through the car radio. So glad we went and our kids got to experience... More

We brought our 9 and 11 year olds to their first Drive In theatre here. The staff were friendly and the kids had a wonderful time. Even in the rain, the movies were awesome to see on the big screen.

This was a fun time. We saw 2 first run movies with great picture and sound. The staff was so friendly and helpful. You can rent chairs at the snack stand for $3 each if you like. Restrooms were clean and close. We could not believe how many stars were out and there was a meteor shower. It was cool... More

One of the few drive ins left in the USA. Bring lawn chairs...and don't forget to try the fried oreos.

First of all, bring CASH. They don't accept credit cards! We enjoyed the experience of my kids' first drive-in movie. Service is friendly, snack bar is very good, and just about every parking spot is a good view. Bring a blanket if you want to sit on the lawn. Other surprise: it was a double-feature! Two current movies for the... More

Horrible movie playing (fantastic Four). Took our folding chairs but hard to hear because some moron would not turn off his car. A great meteor shower on 8/11/15. Nostalgic, but we can cross it off the bucket list! 😀

We saw a double feature of movies currently in normal theaters but for the price of just one movie. The place had a great set up and sound was through each cars radio so you could adjust the sound to your liking. Bathrooms were pretty good as well.

***CASH ONLY*** is the name of the game at this throw-back drive-in theater. We went mid-week in the summer and showed up 20 minutes early and were able to pick just about any spot on the grounds to watch the first run double feature. For less than $100, we brought in two vehicles with three adults, three teens, and three... More

This is a CASH ONLY establishment. Pretty cheap for the movie ticket price. The concession stand is on par with movie theatre concession prices. Expect to pay $5 for a large soda and $5 for a large popcorn. The $5 for the fried oreos are totally worth it! SO much fun... and during the summer they sometimes do a double... More
