Absolutely love taking the young ones in to watch a movie. Such a shame there were so many people smoking around us. It really ruined the ambience. Can't people just enjoy the clear night sky and fresh air for an hour?!?

Lots of car spaces and plenty of room for chairs, etc. Sound quality was good. I always love coming to the Drive In. Highly recommend for guests of all ages. Try the drive in instead of the cinema for your next movie night.

You can still go but just remember that you will have to watch the movie with your window wipers on.
