One of the few remaining Drive In Movie Theaters, it is still popular and deservedly so. Be sure to experience it when you visit Beaufort SC.

True outdoor experience with good popcorn too! Shows current movie releases too!!! Very rarely rained out so if you holiday in the area, (Harbor, Fripp, Beaufort, Bluffton) get this into your holiday plans.

The Drive-In offers double features for $7 per person, which is a steal for first-run movies. The owners sank a small fortune into digital movie equipment recently, so please support them by coming as often as you can. The concession area is clean and offers a limited seating area which is covered, while still letting you see the movie. There... More

WIth so few drive-ins remaining today, Beaufort is very fortunate to have this theater in its arsenal. With extremely reasonable ticket prices and wallet saving concession prices, the Highway 21 Drive-In really offers a family friendly environment to enjoy a movie. I only wish they had deep-fried Oreos...

We love this place. I'm not sure how many drive-in theaters remain in America, but I'm glad this is one of them. The movies played here are the most recent releases and the popcorn/hot dogs/burgers bring you back to a simpler time. It's great to sit in the car, splay out and not freeze to death. I'm surprised drive-in cinemas... More

The Highway 21 Drive-In is a blast from the past. We love drive-ins (Atlanta has a great one -- Starlight Six), and Highway 21 is a great one. It's fairly affordable, the concessions are actually good (our burger and fries were surprisingly tasty) and the picture and sound are good. If you're in the area, stop by and catch a... More

Highway 21 Drive-In Theater is a great place for a family night out or a date night. I have never been to a drive-in until moving to Beaufort. I love how they are able to show new releases at a fraction of what regular theaters charge. The grounds are clean, working restrooms, a fully stocked snack bar (with tons of... More

This place is amazing reminds me so much of my childhood. It really is a shame there are not more drive - ins anymore. The only bad thing about this place is the staff at concessions are not very friendly.

This is one of the best drive in experiences I have ever had. They have two screens, a on site 'diner' where you can get burgers, hotdogs, candy, popcorn, soft drinks, etc. high quality video screens. Great entertainment!!!!

Yep, just like a drive in should be...speakers that hook onto your car windows, concession stands and children playing from car to car!!! Park further away for that romantic movie for two... Mosquito netting helps during months when sand gnats are fierce!
