I haven't been to a drive in theater in decades! This place is very well run, and set up for optimum viewing..on 4 screens! The sound is available through a local radio station, so sound quality is as good as the system in your car...and most vehicles today have excellent sound systems. This being said, it was fantastic to be... More

It's nice to still have a drive-in! It's one of my fondest childhood memories and I love passing that along to my own kids. Big theaters are great, but it's fun to have the outside experience as well. This is a nice, clean drive-in. Go ahead - treat yourself to some nostalgia and bring your kids along for the ride!

This fall they have been playing old movies we grew up with. It was great to watch ET again on the big screen under the stars.

It has 4 screens and shows double features. You can move between screens. Be sure to visit the snack bar it helps support their Drive-in. Also if you stay at the Starlight Inn next door you get in Free.

A very fun drive in theater. You have 4 screens to choose from. The picture quality is pretty good. Just make sure to wear bug spray if you want your windows down. It's cheaper than going to a movie theater. I stayed next door so I didn't need to pay to see a movie. I brought my own snacks and... More

Was fun to see a film the "old-way." Family had a great time. It was a Thursday night so the place was pretty quiet... hope they stay open until I can visit again :)

My kids and I really enjoyed going at this drive-in during our latest vacations. The personnel is very friendly. Nice choice of food. There is a park for the kids to play while waiting for the movies to start. Some commercials shown before the movies are several decades old which adds to the charm of the place because you feel...

Lived in Burlington for a few years.......I loved this place......I saw a "medium" review earlier which is baloney because this place is great. Is it a luxury, stadium seating movie theater serving gourmet food......no - but what kind of idiot would ever expect that. It is a great, fun way to spend a summer night. Go every other week and...

We stayed next door and got free admission to the shows. Stayed for both movies and I was so impressed with the quality of the picture and selection of movies. The snack shack was also very good serving hot dogs, hamburgers, fries, etc. There is also a playground for kids and is pet friendly. We really enjoyed the drive in.
