Description:

Families and friends have been making memories at our drive-in movie...

Families and friends have been making memories at our drive-in movie theatre ever since we built and opened in 2003. We show new double features year-round. For the full drive-in experience, visit our 50's Cafe to grab Rockin' Eats & Tasty Treats. Arrive 30 to 60 minutes early to skip the lines and enjoy the freedom!

*Voted best place to watch a sunset. (Lubbock Avalanche-Journal 2012, 2014)

*Voted best family entertainment. (Lubbock Avalanche-Journal 2007)

*Trip Advisor ranked #1 drive-in theatre in Texas, #3 drive-in theatre in U.S.A. (2014)

Watch 2 current movies and either bring your own meal or partake of the concessions which include (my favorite) REAL chicken tender meal w/a corn fritter, fries, pickle, gravy & toast. Many other great meals and snacks at prices more reasonable than regular movie concessions (I can get the chicken tender meal & a drink for approximately the cost of... More

I like the fact that they offer three screens that each play two current movies for a VERY reasonable price. (Adults $7.00, Children 5-12 $5.00) I can bring my own food which is nice if I want to choose healthier options for my family but the food they offer is good and reasonably priced if you want a treat. I... More

Went to see Juraszek Park and took the dog along. We has the pillows, we had our favorite snacks, we had cold beer. We paid by credit card and got in quickly. Found our spot, and backed in. Turned to the radio station channel and everything worked well...for a while. There are no linger speakers attached to the windows. We... More

Great Drive-In fun. It is easy to hear and see but the things that make it are found in the snack bar. Chihuahua's are amazing! Get there early so you can have the full experience. We bring our lawn chairs and sit out under the stars.

We had read reviews about the drive in previous to visiting. We arrived early as it was recommended, we managed to be the 2nd car in and 1 to park at the screen. ( ah but the early bird catches the worm aka a good spot). Once parked we went to grab a bite to eat. There was plenty choice... More

It's rare to find a drive in theater! I love that I can bring any snack in my car, blankets, pop up chairs, etc and relax in the outdoors while watching a film. Kids can play on their playground. They have a diner with full menu inside and public restrooms. You lay $6 a person I think it is for... More

Highly recommend going to the Drive In. It's fun, and it's different then going to a typical movie theatre.

The drive-in is a breath of fresh air in movie viewing in lubbock! It has good parking and is done well. only complaint is that the sound system could be better for the people who don't want to use as much gas or battery.
