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

Despite the light rain, everything was great. The staff was friendly, and the movie quality was perfect. The snacks were a little pricey, so next time I would pay the additional $5 per car to bring in my own food. Some lighting along the rows would be helpful as well.

First drive-in I have ever been to, it was a good time and a cheap date. The snack bar was bigger than I expected and a little costly.

The Malta Drive-In Theater provided a nostalgic experience for my family and I. We enjoyed the Smurfs II in the comfort of our vehicle. There aren't many opportunities to see a movie in this fashion. It is nice that the Malta is still going strong. It also has upgraded its listening features from the last time I visited two years... More

Cant beat 10 bucks for two movies or more . Snack bar has yummy snacks (which is how they really make money to stay open). Get there early on weekends, line can take some time and bring bug spray, chairs, and citronella candles as well as an outdoor radio for a good time.

Went with friends. A great way to spend a beautiful night outdoors. Two screens and lots of options. Great "messy" food at the snack bar. Talk about old school fun. Glad it is still around.
