I have been taking my family and friends from Sweden to the Sunset for a few years now. Wonderful experience every single time! The kids love it! I love it! The Swedes love it! It is a piece of Americana that everyone should support. The price is great, wonderful setting that is fun for the whole family. Good food. Wonderful... More

My husband and I were traveling through Colchester, VT, on June 20th, and decided take in a show at the Sunset drive in. It was not well maintained and acceptable at best.

Being in our 60's this place takes us back to the 60's when my wife and I were dating and went to the drive-in movies in our home town. They have closed all the areas drive-ins but whenever we go to Colchester, VT we never miss going to this drive-in and watching 2 great movies. Highly recommend.

Make your way to Colchester! VT. Bring a blanket or lawn chair, your own picnic and cold refreshments and sit back to enjoy the night air and a newly released movie or two. The price per person is similar to the local cinema. $7 to $8, but you get 2 movies and can bring your own refreshments. A great summer... More

The classic experience of a drive in is something that many baby boomers grew up enjoying. And Sunset delivers a good one by offering many of thing things that make a drive-in work. Under each screen there is a playground to keep the kiddos happy leading up to the film. The snack bar has a grill so you can get... More

This is like the old drive in, but you get 4 choices. We go and set up lawn chairs in the back of my Baja and love it. Cheaper than all the local theaters...obviously you pay by the person. Also...since gone are the days of the audio that hooks onto your car, you will use your car radio (and battery)... More

Great drive in theatre. We loved it, but do take some stuff with you to avoid being eaten by mosquitos.

Took my grandkids to Vermont this past weekend and had to bring them to the drive-in on Saturday night. They had never been to a drive-in so this was great to see them getting excited about their adventure. We pulled in and lifted the tailgate and got them all set to see Planes. It was a great night and although... More

They show first run movies on four screens. It's always a double feature and sometimes a triple feature (if you can manage to stay up that late). It's a really good deal too, $8 per person for adults. You can sit in your car or outside in chairs or on a blanket. All the audio is on designated radio stations... More

I am so glad we still have a drive-in in Chittenden County! They run first run movies. The concessions are reasonable. It's a fun summer night out.
