“A little far our of town, but worth it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

Was nice to go to one of the last drive in's in BC! Great food, good prices the only negative was there needs to be better directions and more signage for tourists in Prince George. THis should be treasured as one of the last drive ins.

“Great Fun: Bring BUG SPRAY and WINDEX!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

Who can complain about one of the last working drive-in theatres in Canada? This has great ambiance (everyone seems to know everyone, tons of kids walking around in their PJs waiting for the movie, great sunset location) good parking (seating?) good reception with your own car stereo, and a snack counter that does NOT require a second mortgage! The only real problem - or maybe it is a charming quirk - is something the owners can't control - Mother Nature. We've had snow storms on opening weekends (May), risked being "bled out" by mosquitoes in June. At the end of June, near the solstice, the first show might not start until 10:30 or 11 pm - with sunrise around 4:30 am, it is not uncommon to go to the drive in in day light AND come home in daylight as well! How's THAT for Northern personality? If you haven't gone yet, you are definitely missing out on something special! Go while you still have the chance!

One of the last drive in's in the WORLD! Help keep them alive! Two fun movies, candy / popcorn, great radio signal for audio. This is a must see!

“Cool drive-in theater”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

It was well laid out, and well organized. The snacks are well priced, and you get two movies for the same cost of going to the theater. We like to bring a pick up with a futon mattress in the back and double date with friends, its a nice time! The bugs are really bad early in the season though so go in august or on a windy night, or bring lots of bug dope!

“Awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

Although I don't get to make it out here very often it is a very good place. I definitely would recommend this to anyone passing through or living in Prince George.
