“fun for the family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

It is family friendly and shows a double feature. The cost is $10 per adult and 2 kids get in free per adult admission (12yrs and under). They allow you to take in food and coolers. There is a playground for the kids until the movie starts. You listen to the movie through the car radio or sit outside of car in your lawn chairs and listen through your portable radio (boom box) - no speakers are provided. Offers movies for adults and movies for children. Fun with family and friends. It is outdoor style so don't expect overly clean - bathrooms were port- a- potties on last visit.

“Nostalgic Drive-in For Family Fun.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013 via mobile

This drive-in has been around since 1949! We make this a must go to place at least once each summer. It had 2 screens and is only $10 per adult (over 12 y/o) for 2 full movies! It has an old playground for the kids, an old food stand, but you are allowed to bring your own food or alcohol. Bathrooms are scetchy, so bring your own TP & hand sanitizer, just in case. You use your car radio for sound. No more speakers here.

“Good family fun and will build memories with kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

We usually go to McDonalds, etc., and take it early to get a good seat/location. Recommend getting their shortly after opening on Fridays and Saturdays, weekdays are not a crowded. We take fold-up seat, radio, cooler and snacks thoughout both movies. Prices have risen over the past few years, but since they are the only outdoor theater in the area, supply and demand takes effect. Overall a good time though!

“One of the last few drive in theatres around.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

You can never go wrong with drive in movies and Skyview will not let you down, pizza's, burgers, and more at the snackbar. $10 admission per adult and one free child per adult. This one still has a full playground for the kids. Recently upgraded HD system.

“The only drive-in near St. Louis”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013 via mobile


Recently visited this drive-in theater and it was pretty good experience. Compared to going to a regular theater you save on admission cost, watch 2 full movies and don't have to bothered with noise much from others (except for the folks in the car from you). It is equivalent to watching movies at home.

Good thing the staff is plesant enough because this is the only location close to the St. Louis, MO metro area. Bring your own snacks, which is allowable (another benefit of a drive-in) because their's is expensive.

Groupon usually offer great deals so check that out as well.
