I love the Saco Drive in on Route 1. It is close by and easy to get in and out. The films are good and the popcorn and snacks are yummy. I try to go every year during my fall vacation. They are getting a digital projector to keep up with new film technology. Well worth the trip!!

Only $15 per car load can't be beat. But do they need a Bar serving drinks outside. Do they need to have a bounce house for $4.00 for 3 minuets or $7.0 till the movie starts. Do they need to charge 5.00 a bag for popcorn and 4.00 soda ? I remember how hard the two couples work to get... More

Jimmy Buffett show. was surprised to not see his name on the board at the drive in. I was expecting a lot more people but we still had a blast. We were looking for glow sticks in the store but they don't sell them. For some strange reason my truck was not able to play the station. not sure what... More

We went to the Saco Drive-In Theater on Father's day this year (while camping near-by at Bayley's) and had a great experience. It was $10 dollars per car, and they showed two first-run movies. We would definately go again if we are in the area. There was a lot of room for the kids to play before the movies started... More

We decided to visit the Saco drive in during our vacation to Old Orchard Beach. The drive was less than 10 mins away, which was a nice treat. Everyone from the staff to other movie goers were very friendly and respectful of each other. Two first run movies, one on it's opening weekend, for only $15 a car. You can't... More

It always reminds me of childhood days when my folks loaded up the car with soda pop, & goodies; & if we were very good, something from the concession stand. I think it is great to be able to bring my Chihuahuas with us, instead of leaving them at home. This way we all have a great time; we will... More

Take the whole family to an old fashioned drive-in movie some night on Route 1 in Saco. Go back to the Fifties and let the kids play in the kid's area and watch them from your deck car while you wait for the movie at dusk. We saw two first run movies for the price of one adult admission at... More

We just happened past this drive-in on our way to Portland and I'm so glad we did. Boasting it is the 2nd oldest operating drive in in America (the first being in New Jersey I was told), I couldn't believe for just $15 they were offering two First run movies that were still in the theaters. Bring chairs and a... More

Best $15 we could ever spend. They offer 2 movies back to back that my kids all loved. They have a full concession stand with popcorn and everything you need for a night at the movies. I wish I would have know what the locals do, as most drive ins don't put the volume on, they just have you tune... More

We had a great time bringing our kids to the drive in for the first time and they loved it. We got a free small popcorn at the concession stand using our Funtown Splashtown USA bracelet. The bathrooms were small but the wait was very short. We visited on a Tuesday night and it wasn't too crowded. We came prepared... More
