“Favorite place in the summer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

I look forward to going here every summer. It's nice to have an old time outdoor movie theatre to go to. Their famous big mama burger is delicious as well!

“Expand beyond waterparks under the stars!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

If you were lucky enough to go to a drive in movie with your family as a kid, treat your family to a throwback experience. Bring your own snacks, lawn chairs/blanket & cuddle up for a double feature! Big Sky ONLY takes cash for admission & at the snack shop so come prepared! Great value for movies: 2 movies for $8 per adult & $5 per child. Cotton candy at concessions for only $2.50 per bag completes a perfect night under the stars! Two different screens to choose from and you stream the sound through your radio. Doors open at 7:30 & movies start at dusk. Don't limit yourself to only waterparks!

“Blockbusters outside- FUN!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

Double feature, current movies, and we brought our own pizza and soda. It was a great family movie night, the kids fell asleep 2 minutes into the second movie so the adults got some quiet time too. Great memory for the summer!

“So much fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

This is always a must do when we do to the Dells. We don't have a drive in theater where we live. The kids enjoy sitting outside and watching a movie. Before the movie the kids always play catch with a football or baseball. Just a great end to the night. No bugs either!

“What an awesome time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

If you are visiting the Dells, this is a must. This old fashioned drive in puts you in mind of the drive in from the movie "Twister" - minus the tornado :-) The atmosphere was great and the snack bar was incredible - just had that old time feel to it. And to top it off, the video game in the snack bar was an original stand up Space Invaders arcade game. So Cool. A very inexpensive evening and you get to see 2 flicks. Would recommend this to all, especially families with young kids - there is plenty of room for them to run around before the movie and wear off some steam. Very cool place indeed.
