I love this place! We've been quite a few times over the years, most recently last week. Their popcorn is fresh and awesome, the hot dogs and burgers pretty darn good, and the prices just can't be beat. We were there on a Thursday night and only a couple of rows of cars were in attendance, meaning no lines anywhere.... More

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

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.

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
