It is a must try if you have never gone to a drive in movie theater. This place is very professional and polite. The movies are great and it is an overall good experience for a fun night out with a couple, friends, or family.

A fun unique experience that is getting harder to find every year. Too bad it is 90 minutes from Charleston. The staff was friendly , the concessions were decent by movie theater standards. More costly than a typical restaurant and not 5-star quality, but hey... you are at the drive in theater not King Street in Charleston. The sound quality... More

We went for a double feature (Minions & Inside Out). Drove an hour and 15 minutes with the kiddo from home. So glad we did, and we'll be back for sure! What a lovely little homey feel. The rows for parking are all raised, so you all easily have a great view. We were one row back from the front... More

We wanted something to do that was local to hilton head. It's about an hour away. from HH. Near Paris Island. You get 2 feature films for $7 per adult. They have fresh eats, fresh popped pop corn. Go enjoy, relive your child hood. Very clean and fun for everyone.

We went here with our kids and another family, and everyone had a really good time. They have two screens, and they show two movies on each screen each night. ($7 per adult and $3 per child. Great prices - especially for two movies!). Also there is a lot of variety at the concession stand, with reasonable prices. We had... More

First tome my kids have ever been to a drive inn. Everything was very affordable. $7.00 for a double feature. Popcorn for $3.00. Thought I was back in the 70's. Had a great time. Checkout the Osprey that nests on top of the screen.

Went to the drive-in for the first time in December. They recently modernized their setup so now all you have to do is tune your car's radio in and the sound comes through your own speakers. Snacks are great, especially the angus beef burger. Highly recommended.

For us older movie-goers, this place elicits fond memories of the past. For the newer generation of movie-goers, like my young children, this place is a wonderful time, period! Unlike the Jesup Drive-in theater, which is also awesome, Highway 21 Drive-in has two snack bars (a satellite and main snack bar) as well a playground. This way, the kiddos can... More

We were in the Beaufort area for a Parris Island graduation, and happened to see this on the way in. I have always wanted to experience a drive-in movie and this didn't disappoint. Compared to the theaters, this was very affordable at $7 per adult. Concessions were also very reasonable. Screens were high definition and audio worked perfectly. I highly... More

Two movies for an adult ticket price of $7??!! And the concession stand is just as reasonable. It was so much fun with the kid. LONG night with two back to back but if you find a good double movie combo, well worth it!
