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...

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

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
