Fun, inexpensive place to take the family or friends.

Fun, inexpensive place to take the family or friends. Specials in the spring and fall let you take the whole carload for $12.

Alway clean. Mosquito free. Well managed. And just an overall great time and a bargain to boot! Tonight it was popcorn movies and family fun with my kids just the same (only better) than when I came here with my mother and sister and her mother with her before that. They have modern equipment so the picture quality is the... More

The whole experience is a blast, you're never under-dressed, it's common to see people here in their pyjamas. The snack bar serves quite good fries and burgers, as well as funnel cakes, hot pretzels, and all the normal movie foods. We go for the evening, have dinner and watch three movies - it's almost always a triple feature at both... More

We love going to the Starlite Drive-In for a great evening with the family. It's great being at the drive-in because the kids can run a muck without distracting the rest of the audience. The Starlite's concession stand is a little pricey, but so is the Warren. We like to go during the week because there is always less of... More

Not many drive-ins left. Take advantage of the nostalgia while it is still here. Reasonably priced compared to indoor theaters.

We love driving to Wichita, which is just about an hours drive away, to see movies at the Starlite Drive in. It is a great value, 3 movies for $12 per carload. The concessions are great and not really pricey, especially compared to the theater in my town. We love to go up on the weekends and enjoy a couple... More

If you are willing to stay up late it is a great value getting 3 movies for the price of 1. They have a nice concession stand with yummy funnel cakes but the lines are sometimes WAY WAY too long. Sometimes I don't understand their parking policy ( when you go in they give you either a green or yellow... More

Drive-In Movie Theaters gotta stay around-- sitting out under the stars in your lawn chairs watchin the movies with your friends/family is so much better than any surround sound cinema can offer! :-) Takes you back to a simpler time/place! Highly recommend for a great family experience--we stopped and got snacks/drinks to make the evening more affordable, but the concession... More

Like I remember! But without the children and fogged windows. Even the intermission commercials "to visit the snack bar" were retro. Had a great time actually enjoying the double feature with my grandchildren. Some activities are timeless.

Great to bring friends or family, teenagers included. They have great carload specials at beginning and end of the season. Always very friendly staff, clean and have great treats! I go every season with my kids, and have recommended everyone I know. I highly recommend!
