The price is right and you can bring your dinner in with you. We went on a weeknight in July and it was fairly busy. Many people got there early to get a good location. It can be tough to get a clear view due to all of the SUV and minivans. The front several rows are reserved for cars.... More

Where can you go and pay 20 dollars for 2 movies for 4 or more people? We bought popcorn and our snacks with us. We also brought chairs, blankets, sleeping bags, pillows, and flashlights with us. The movies starts when it starts to get dark and plan on being there late. To the kids this is a big deal. The... More

Grew up going to the drive in and it always brings back fun memories of wearing pjs in the back of the family station wagon. Nostalgia aside, 2 movies for $20 for 4 people is a bargain! (Even if you fall asleep during the second one)

Great price for the experience. The film quality is much better now that it has gone digital. $20 per car is much better than going to an expensive movie theater.

I've been going to Saco Drive In for nearly 30 years. Yes, it has changed over time, but the fundamental basics of it being a drive in are still very much the same. The concession is dated, but orderly, and they are constantly popping fresh popcorn! (Nothing irritates me more than spending like $10 at the movie theater for a... More

THe Saco drive in is one of the oldest running outdor theathers in Maine. Do expect long lines for the confession stand, where they serve burgers,frys,popcorn soda, ext The prices are a bit high but again it is a theather. It costs about 15 dollars for a carload of 3, and 20 for four or more. If your looking to... More

So glad this historic place was saved. I love spending the night here and watching two different movies. Just a really unique fun way to spend an evening for a couple or a family. Watch out for bugs in the summer though!
