My wife and I drove to this place from Frisco on Friday night to have a date night. It was quite a drive to get there, but was worth the trip. Upon arriving at the front gate, you pick the two movies that you want to see, pay $7 for each person, drive to the screen, park the car and... More

Wonderful place to take the family or for a date night! The concession stand food is very good, lots of choices.

We've been to Galaxy Drive-in many times with our family, friends, and kids (now 14 & 7). It's always a good time! Their concessions stand is very reasonably priced (about what you'd pay at McD or BK) and it's how the park makes the majority of their income...so it's worth it to buy food there. Each screen has its own... More

I've seen this theater on my many rides in between Dallas and Houston, over the years, and have always wanted to go. I finally got the chance and was very pleased. A taste of old, with speakers that sit inside your car, but also a taste of new, with radio stations that will bring the sound through your car radio.... More

I will just say that this place is awesome. Having never been to an outdoor drive in theater I was very satisfied. The price is great and you get to see two new release movies. In my opinion the 3D showing isn't really worth it but still cheap non the less. There's food and restrooms there. The only reason I... More

I like the comfort of my car and the opportunity to see two movies for the price of one. Being a baby-boomer, the drive in was how I watched most movies when I was younger, and I am glad to have Galaxy bring back that old tradition. I'm going tonight or tomorrow night, when the crowd is smaller, to see... More

Been here many of times!! You can't beat the price for two movies. Just a fun thing to do! One thing that does need improvement but not worth taking a star away is the putt putt. It needs a lot of touching up. Priced cheap though properly to compensate for the condition. Worth the drive to me!!

This place is very cool and you can't beat the price anywhere. You get to sit outside or in your car and watch two movies for the price of less than one at other theaters. And the food is very good and very cheap compared to any theater I've ever been too. I go here everytime I get a chance... More

The night my family went, the film broke 2 or 3 times, causing the movie to end about 35 minutes later than scheduled. Movie concessions are very limited, and the bathroom was dirty. Car lights here and there were distracting. I don't really see the point in returning.
