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

Cheap, clean family fun right smack dab in te middle of Pipestem state park. Take a break from hiking, grab a pizza in Athens or surrounding area and drive back in time for a drive in theater. Super nice people, great prices and new movies!
