Took he kids out to see TMNT at the Showboat. Brought back old times. Price is unbeatable, and the kids really loved it. We will return

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

This was a great experience. There are two screens with 2 movies offered on each screen. The cost for entrance is per person and very reasonable. Our boys played Frisbee and tossed a football before the movie started while we went inside to order our food. There are many options at the snack bar, which include the regular popcorn, candy...

I've been going to this drive-in for years, it's everything a drive-in movie should be. The prices are totally reasonable, it has popular, first run movies, you can sit in your car or bring your own lawn chairs, lots of choices at the snack bar, you can use your own radio or sit near somebody with a better sound system,...
