A drive in movie was on my bucket list since I had not been to one since I was a teenager. Absolutely loved it and it brought back lots of memories. Great place and great concession stand. Bring your mosquito spray and lawn chairs. Great for the family and a value!

Our entire family (with kids ages 6 months to 4 years) were able to watch the movie from the comfort and privacy of our SUV. It was great, we had enough space for everyone and we weren't worried about the kids bothering others. Movie quality and sound was great.

We have been coming here since it opened although it gets so crowded now that the secret is out!! $7 for 2 movies is a steal. They show all the latest releases. I think the owners now try to pack too many ppl into the screens for bug features and for someone in the back makes for a not so... More

The price per person and the snackbar prices are a great value. They say movies starts at 8:30 but wasnt dark enough until 9:00. 1st movie ended at midnight. We listened on the car radio in the air conditioning. I will go back in the Fall or Winter when it gets dark sooner and the nights are a bit cooler.

Better than a movie theatre. Kids can roam and you can bring your fur kids too. The snack bar could use improvement. $3.00 for a stale burger with dried cheese to me is a bit much. Nacho cheese looks fresh and they really should offer at least one free drink refill . You definitely have to use your own radio... More

They have 5 (or is it 6) screens, a miniature golf course and a WONDERFUL snack bar. Reasonable prices. They kids have a place to play and it has been a safe place to spend an evening. If you go during mosquito season make sure you bring some good outdoor repellent with DEET. And if you go during the really... More

Great price of $6 per person. The concession stands were not great and had an extremely long wait time. If you get the funnel cake do not get a topping completely ruined the cake. The digital projectors make for a good showing, though the subtitles were difficult to read from near the back. I would suggest getting there early, we... More

First drive-in theater experience did not disappoint. Got there an hour early on a Friday night to secure a good spot and beat traffic (had to go through Dallas traffic). We had no problem finding the place (just look for huge white screens/boards). There was a putt-putt course in front (small area and looked old). 3 cashiers welcome you when... More

For those of you old enough to remember when Drive Inns were all over the country, this is one. It is not old but really brings back the experience. A really nice experience, remember how hot its in in Texas in the summer.

The price of admission for two fairly recent movies can't be beat. Especially when you've got a toddler who wouldn't enjoy a typical movie theatre experience. Concession stand prices are very reasonable! I was expecting much higher prices. Although, stay away from the pizza--it's gross. The facilities are very dated. The put-put course up front looked like a remedial shop... More
