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)

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.

This was just like it is in the movies! Really worth experiencing and the cafe was good to get drinks/food from (although you can take your own). The milk shakes were delicious and highly recommended and juke box is worth it - a dollar for 4 songs. You can stay for 2 films in the same price - which makes... More

After a long drive to Lubbock, we were looking for something to do rather than just go to the usual bar/restaurant. S & S Drive In looked interesting and reasonably priced. 3 screens, first run movies, double feature for $7/person, plus the Chihuahua (more on that later). How could we go wrong? Storms were threatening and we did get some... More

You can see two movies for less than one movie ticket. Their food is great. Nice Drive In Theatre. Very well maintain. Nice employees. Clean bathroom.
