If you're looking to go back in time a few decades to experience the magic of drive-inn movies, this special place certainly does the trick. They have 2 screens and double-features on each, but we just came in for the later show and were so happy to find it! Though the flicks are all current, the place has this 50's... More

We go there from NOVA 4 or 5 times throughout the year and always have a good time. This weekend was the dust to dawn event featuring 4 movies which was enjoyed by our family. After the last movie my truck would not start and the management was great about getting us a jump start and on our way home.... More

Since I was a small child, my family has gone to the Drive In. There used to be 3 Drive ins in the area and Family was our favorite! You can't beat the value. Two movies for $8.00 and first run hits! We used to come in our pajama's so Dad would only have to carry us to bed! Oh'... More

This family drive-in experience was amazing! My wife is from Asia and I wanted her to experience a true drive-in experience. We saw a double feature (Planet of the Apes and Transformers). The picture was outstanding! The cost was $8 per person and they gave us a $2 off per person military discount (I am retired military). They have the... More

Well parking is a pain. The back screen is ok if you don't have to park at the end. If you do park at the end you have to watch the movie side ways. Food prices are a bit steep and stay away for the meat!!!!! My son ate half a raw chicken and they refunded me for that and... More

I remember going to the drive-in when I was little and we had such fun. So imagine my excitement when I found out there is a real live drive-in right here in VA! My husband and I have been going to this place for years, but it's only been recently that they upgraded to digital. The movies are current &... More

If your kids have never been to a drive-in theater, give them a treat. We were planning to travel through the area and saw it on Tripadvisor. There are two screens and often double features at each. The movie was set to start at 9 pm. We thought we'd drive by and make sure where it was located. The cars... More

This is where my daughter wanted to go for her 21st birthday. My mother sneaked away and talked to the owner and he even mentioned her birthday during his announcements at the beginning of the flick. We had to find a corner of the concession building so we could get the cake lit and everyone around joined in, in singing... More
