DH and I go to the drive-in at least a couple of times each summer. We love this one. It's close to home, shows first-run movies, and with two screens, offers a variety. Where else can you see two movies for $18?

Traveled through the area - and the hotel suggested we do this for the evening. Great place, movie was clear and sound was awesome - the snack bar was a favorite too. Well done!

I have been here plenty of times and its always fun. It's great to get two movies for the price of one, and the movies are usually the ones playing in theatres.

It is easy to get to and has great sets of movies to watch. They are all new releases and gives you a chance to watch two movies for a great low price.

I have lived in this area almost all my life, and I have to say that the drive ins are something you don't really take for granted for several reasons. One, there are not that many drive ins in other areas, and two, in the winter, when you see the prices of movie tickets in theaters, you miss the drive... More

We are so lucky to have this in our backyard. All the good things of going to a movie, with no noticeable downside and several pluses. It's comfortable (because you're in your own car). The snacks are better (burgers and hot dogs, not just candy and pop corn). And the movies are first run! Now, we're not talking about an... More

I love the fact that we have a drive in so close to home. It's a great way to see a movie! And a fun family activity!

If you've been to drive-ins before and love them for what they are, you'll find the Malta Drive-In *perfect*. If you're used to all-digital IMAX experiences, well, not so much. The charm is in the cash-only ticket gate, the owner announcing before the movie to please pick up your garbage otherwise she has to come in tomorrow morning and do... More
