“My new favorite way to see a movie”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Why aren't there more drive-ins? This is the best way to see a movie. You get the big screen experience without having to deal with the other theater goers. Someone in the next car is texting on their phone? Who cares! Kids are whining or falling asleep? No problem!

There's a little snack shack and a playground straight from the 70s. Just bring plenty of bug spray if you'll have your windows open.

“Family fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013 via mobile

My 13 year old had never been to a drive-in movie so we gave it a try. The sound was great through our car radio. The snack stand had a variety of food and the staff was attentive and nice. We all had a good time and left wishing we had a drive-in near us at home. We will definitely return on our next trip.

“Nice time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

Haven't been to a drive in movie in...14 years. The drive-in is set up well. We got some ice cream, which was great. The designated areas for larger vehicles is smartly set up, as to not block the view of sedans. So everything is set up well, unfortunately for us there was a serious lack of decent flicks available in theaters when we went. So there really wasn't much for the Drive-In to even choose what to show. We stayed for the first flick which was decent but was too tired to stay for the 10:45 showing of the next movie, (and it wasn't a great choice, not to the fault of the theater).

“We need more of these”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

I had never been to a drive-in and was so excited to see this as we passed by on Rt 6 and saw that Star Trek was playing. That night we went to the 10:00 show, and it was so cool. Sitting in the comfort of your own car, under the stars, watching Star Trek. You can't beat that.

The sound quality over the radio is perfect, and there were lots of the usual movie theater fare at the concession building. I highly recommend going to see a movie there.
