We've been here quite a few times and just love the place. I grew up going to the drive in back home. So when we seen we had one here we were very happy. Great concessions food. Great picture quality. Very clean and family friendly. Great workers.

We visited the Showboat Drive-In on Saturday, 10/10/2015 with our 7 year-old twins. It was a first-time drive-in movie experience for myself and the kids! The advertised time for gates opening is at 6:30 p.m. As we approached at around 6:15 p.m., traffic was slightly backed up on the highway near the entrance. They must have opened early, and we...

Love the price. Two movies for the price of one, your way. Bring snacks along or run into the Showboat's concession area, the movie price is per car rather than per person., making it the most affordable and most enjoyable way for me to go to the movies. :) Rain or shine, since high school this place has kept me...

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
