This place was great. 8 bucks bought a ticket to two movies and it was right during a meteor shower! It is close enough to the Dells to make it perfect for an evening out. Pack some blankets, bug spray and don't forget to bring cash as they don't take cards.

Tired of getting fleeced at Noah's Ark? Need refuge from shrieking kids? Make sure you plan on a visit one evening to this American icon. I felt like I was driving into a Field of Dreams set. The drive-in cinema is located in a lovely corn field tucked away from the Ticky Tacky strip of Wis Dells. They have two... More

Great place to relax and catch a show. It is nice to step back in time a little bit to experience the drive in movie theater. All kids should experience this.

Whenever we go to the Dells in the summer, a visit to the Big Sky is a must! $8 for 2 first run flicks. Saw 22 Jump Street the first night it came out this year. The movies are clear, the sound is through an FM feed and the snack bar is top notch. We get there early and play... More

Overall a good experience. Didnt care for the fact one of the older ladies working there made me move my car and tighten things up to make room for other cars considering there were only 10 cars in our area. Movie started around 845 and ended around 2am for the double feature. Didnt check out the concessions. Definitely Recommend

We love going here at least once or twice a year. We especially like the double feature. The price is decent and they have a really nice snack bar with delicious popcorn and even hamburgers, and pizza.

What a deal! We didn't even know they were showing two movies for the price of one. The place is great. It makes me wish we had a drive in closer to home. It really makes for a great movie experience! You can bring your own food in but we purchased popcorns to help support the place. The speakers that... More

Living in Chicago there are no drive-in theaters for us to go to, so every summer we look forward to big sky on our annual dells trip. The movie is clear, the food is good and not too expensive, and you can drink beer. It's like movie heaven.

The films weren't to our liking during our vacation so we did not go, but we usually never miss out on the drive in. Brings back a ton of great memories. The Mamaburger is great - they're not stingy with the onions!

$26 for a family of 4 to see a double-feature of newly released movies can't be beat. The prices in the concession stand were reasonable too. Many visitors brought lawn chairs and blankets. We will definitely go back.
