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!

I am an old soul in both the figurative and literal sense, so when my husband suggested going to a drive-in, I didn't hesitate for one second. I used to love going to drive-ins when so going to one after such a long time solo, with my husband and not with anyone else (kids, etc) definitely took me down the... More

I love this drive-in. Wichita is so lucky to have one. The food here is not over-priced to the point of ridiculousness and it's good too. My kids love piling up in the van in their PJs with blankets and pillows. Everyone here is friendly. You can even bring in your own food. Three movies! You can't beat this value.

My family went this past weekend to Starlight Drive-in and I must say we were all pretty impressed! You can't ask for a more fun movie-going experience for such a cheap price! We will definitely plan to go again sometime soon!

Terrific drive-in! Immaculate throughout. What a treat to experience this with our boys ages 3-5-8. Wish there was playground equipment. Saran Wrap covering the popcorn buckets was weird. But, friendly staff, nostalgic ambiance, clean restrooms and great audio. Enjoy an inexpensive night out with your family!!!!

My favorite thing was the opening and intermission announcements. Sounded just like those I heard at the drive-in as a kid in the back of our Chevy station wagon :-). $12 for a carload and 4 movies if you can stay up that late. I'd give them an easy 5 stars for fresh popcorn and no extra charge for extra... More
