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

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!

For families with a budget in mind for vacation, this is the place to go. Great value and fun for the kids. Fun to share the "old way" of watching movies. Highly recommend you go when you are enjoying this beautiful state.

All new digital equipment makes the country's second oldest drive in ready for the next 75 years. Great prices and the ultimate family atmosphere puts this on the summer list of things you must experience.

The Saco Drive-In is a taste of youth no matter how old you may be. Located on Route 1 in Saco, they have one screen, with double features all summer long. Open on weekends only select weekends in spring and fall, they offer the best value for any movie venue for miles around. $15 for a car full of 4,... More
