Good prices for two movies, first run movies! Have concession stand with goodies. Bring your lawn chairs and sit outside and enjoy a good old fashion drive in movie.

You can not beat the experience. Two movies for six bucks a person!! The concessions are reasonable and helps support the business so please do not sneak in your own food. There are bathrooms outside that are nice. The gates open at 6:30, we got there at 6:25 and the line was already out on the road in the grass... More

We do not have any drive-in movie theaters in the state where we live, so on a recent trip to Austin, we went a little out of the way to visit the Showboat Drive-In. It was certainly worth the trip. First of all, we were pleasantly surprised by the cost of the movie. We were able to see two movies... More

Overall a great drive-in theater. But the concession stand food orders take too long to be filled, 25 minutes for a cheeseburger and fries? Crowd of people waiting for orders. Food was cold by the time it was served. Use real butter on your popcorn. The majority of your profit is from concessions, get an experienced food service manager in... More

Great entrance price for a double feature. Food is good and priced very well. Love the family atmosphere. Make sure to bring mosquito spray for those hot sticky nights!

Miss going to the drive-in theater? Not anymore! All I hoped for and better than I expected. Make sure you arrive well ahead of show times though as there can be a long wait to get in.

I haven't been in a drive in movie theater in ages and my teenage son has never been to one, we had to trick him in the car to get him there but we loved the experience, the staff is friendly, the snacks are good and you have control of the sound quality...overall a great experience for $6 a person.

A whole new twist on going to the movies. Each ticket gets you into two movies, usually a kids movie first and then a more adult type movie second. You don't have to attend both. Come for one or the other or watch both. You can't keep your car running, so make sure you have a good battery on your... More
