Best entertainment money can buy - for the whole family, friends, etc.!!! Love their Corn Dog basket, Cheeseburger basket, along with most any sweet they offer.

I not one who typically (never actually) writes reviews, however incase of the Showboat drive in an exception must be made. While this place is nostalgic and inexpensive, my family and I will not be returning. It is overly crowded, the place smells of dirty restrooms (imagine sitting for hours upon hours in the heat of Houston, munching on popcorn... More

This is our second time here. The first time we were unprepared and had a miserable time. Bring lawn chairs and/or blankets and pillows, mosquito spray, a radio, if you don't want your car to die but if it does someone will give you a jump at the end of the movie, drinks and snacks if you don't want to...

Brought our kids here who of course I didn't get it. But I loved it brought back great memories. Where else can you get a double feature so cheap. if you haven't been and your kids have never been to a drive in you've got to take them!

The price is awesome! Fun family evening for all ages! Plan on getting there when the gates open as the spots fill up fast. The back spots are not as pleasurable as the front although you are closer to the snack bar and rest rooms. Before the movies bring playing cards, balls and other things to do to entertain the...

I should give a zero rating for how the woman treated me when we bought our tickets. But I should give a rating of 5, since my evening was enjoyable and I love a unique, family run operation. Despite the ridiculously rude "owner" the crowds were delightful, the movie was fun and the weather ideal. My husband and I drove... More

Visited for maybe the forth time. Nice set up. Cheap night of fun since you can watch two movies for 6 bucks a head. They ask you to not bring in outside food/drink but have no control. Prices inside are not bad, they don't gouge you like a normal movie theater. Need to get a brighter camera for front screen.... More

Had a wonderful time!. The price for a double feature was great and we were lucky enough to get a 70 degree day in February. The staff was very helpful and the concession stand had a great selection! Area was clean

My husband and I surprised our sons (9&5) to a drive in movie for valentine's day. We saw Spongebob and Paddington. I really enjoyed Paddington and suffered through Spongebob. When you drive up to ticket booth, if it is already dark, dim your lights. We only paid $20 total for 2 adults and 2 children. So I love the prices.... More

Been there on sat night with kids and friends, this place is nice, good old outdoor movie, under the stars. It was my kids first time and we all enjoyed. The place could do better with few improvements, such as better/faster food serving, could rent radios/ speakers. Anyway it was great fun, definitely we'll go back better equipped with blankets...
