“If you're in the Dells you have to go!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

One the last drive in theatres in Wisconsin. Yes it's dated and old and maybe even a little run down but it's a DRIVE IN people! If you want luxury and heat and A/C this isn't the place for you. The more people who go the longer they will be around!

“A Trip Back in Time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

Would only need the speakers to put on your window rather than tuning in to the radio to have that 1960's experience! Inexpensive evening for the family!

“A Must for Families when visiting the Dells”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

This is a throw back to days of old. A classic Dells experience especially with those travelling with kids and dogs. Two screen options with a double feature playing at both. A variety of choices and not all just for kids. This is family owned and operated for 33 years and helps give credit to not everything in the Dells being commercially done up. A sweet example of fun summer entertainment.

Concessions are reasonably priced essentials and delicious. Recommend the mama burger served up on a grill made to order which has sauteed onions and a generous portion of pickles on top. Yum! Our one tip for travelers is that this is cash only so plan ahead. They let you bring carry ins but no alcohol.

“Bring back old memories”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

This is a classic drive it.

Great prices (too cheap imo) and the concessions are clean and priced well too. Brings back a lot of memories and fun.
