Remember the good ole days where a car load of family or friend would pile into a car or truck and go to the drive in? Sit in the bed of a truck or in lawn chairs and watch a movie on a GIGANTIC screen under the open sky and stars shining? It's still possible at the Starlite Drive-In. The... More

The starlight is one of the best parts of Wichita! It is great to pack up the kids and chairs and spend the night out getting to see 3 movies for the price of 1. It is also very clean and the staff is very friendly.

If you're looking for an "old school" approach to the movie experience, look no further. The Starlite Drive-In is the one and only drive in theatre in Wichita. The prices are very fair, as it's charged by the car load. The Snack shop is a little pricey, but which one isn't, right? This is a very good place to go... More

We had an amazing time! We are visiting from San Antonio and came with my brother and sister in law and we both have new babies which makes seeing a movie any other way impossible! Glad to know these are coming back! They just opened one close to us recently! Concessions were clean and very efficiently run so we were... More

What more can be said, comfortable night, 3 movies under the stars. Lawn chairs, cooler, pizza, sitting in the back of the truck.

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.
