Great place to take the kids. Affordable compared to the price of a movie ticket at the theater. Fun place. Good snacks. Plenty of space.

I first visited while on a trip to see family. Now, every time I'm back up there I make sure that me and my boyfriend get to go. Its a wonderful theater seeing as it has a great concession stand, its clean, and they show really up to date movies. And the prices are amazing!!

Wow, I moved here from Chicago, and even there most drive ins are GONE! This one is clean, friendly, and very busy on Friday/Saturday nights. Where else can you find 3 movies for $10 a person? Stay up late on a nice summer night, have some popcorn, snacks, and my favorite pretzels with cheese! They have one screen for kids... More

We enjoyed the movies, definitely a great value- three movies for $8 a person. The snack bar has many tasty items and there is plenty of good parking spots. Some of the speakers need some maintenance (we had a fuzzy one at first), but over-all, it's a very well kept landmark.

Blown away by this place well worth the money. Just pray for good weather because the windshield wipers may make your movie experience a bit of a challenge.

My family and I visited this theater while visiting Wichita in March 2011. We went to a triple movie night. You can either get sound via the radio, or hang the microphone on your window like the old style drive-in. My son had never been to a drive-in, and he thought it was great. It was clean and well maintained.... More

Fun way to take the kids out at a great price! Grab a few beach chairs, sodas, and enjoy the movies!
