We enjoy going to the Pipestem drive-in. Expect rednecks in pick-ups & hotdogs & popcorn & a sometimes wafting sewer smell & you'll be fine. We always have a good time & enjoy the laid back outside atmosphere. I would suggest parking not closer than the building and you'll be fine. Service is great & food is pretty good (just nachos,popcorn, pizza, hotdogs, and the like). Not many left, so check it out! The sound system has been updated, so much better. :)

This was always my favorite place to visit as a child and a great place for a family outing or to take a date out for a unique experience. There’s not many drive in theatres these days so it’s really wonderful to have such a nice one so close to home.

Worst experience I've ever had a drive in. The first movie started 1 hour behind when it was scheduled. The lines for the concessions were half way out into the parking lot. I seen neighboring families leave before the show started for concessions and actually didn't make it back to their car till the movie was almost over. On an evening where the first movie was a child's movie, you would think that they would be willing to try and get people out of there before midnight, but it simply wasn't the case. We will not be back.

This was my daughter’s first time going to a drive in theater so it was a cool bucket list item. We went over Labor Day weekend and watched the first movie in the Disney triple header. The parking is pretty spacious, even though some people decided to park in non-parking areas and on the road, which made leaving sort of difficult. That’s my reasoning for the four star review, as I felt the people violating the parking should have been addressed. The movie was easy to hear, and the concession stand was very reasonably priced. If you are in the area, you should give this a go.

Took my teens to the drive in and they had a blast! Family friendly and everyone was considerate of small childrena and others watching the movie. Concession stand was clean and very reasonable. Bathrooms were clean. I will definitely go back the next time we're in Pipestem.

I have been going to this theater since 2004. It's a great place to watch a movie in a family friendly setting. Always a pleasure. Great staff and very reasonable prices.

Its great that this place still exists. I have gone there for the novelty factor but would not go back as the sound quality was terrible, I could not make out the dialog due to the poor speaker we were given

One of the few drive in theaters left. We enjoy taking the pickup truck, chairs and getting snacks from the snackbar on the grounds, sitting back and enjoying a movie the "old way." That is if there is actually a decent movie showing. There is just something about being outdoors with your family and watching a movie...not something you would want to do often but it is different and as I said, almost a thing of the past. Most locals have been here at least once, most of them many times.
