This is a fun place! But 2 things set this drive-in apart from most....their food is very good and their prices are 10x lower than any other movie theater. Even their ticket prices are awesome. Service was great as well. You will leave with an amazing happiness because your wallet wasn't mugged! A typical movie theater and concessions night [not including dinner] for a family of 4 is easily $85-95. But at Kenda, you can see 2 movies, eat dinner, and have popcorn for less than $35 for the same family of 4. It's amazing and supports a local business AND the only drive-in theater in Arkansas!

Known the owners for years. They are solid contributors to the area. Best food for miles. Todd makes best burgers anywhere. Their commitment to providing entertainment that has good values is unbelievable. So proud of these professionals that keep on keeping on. !!! Had the privilege to work in education with Kenda. You won’t be disappointed with this icon.

Kenda Drive-In is the real deal! One of the few remaining drive-in's in the country (open since 1965). They have a very reasonably priced concession stand with great hamburgers, popcorn, drinks, candy, etc. You can check their website for the current movie (or movies - they often do double-features). We usually back the truck in and fill it with pillows and blankets - the kids love it!

I haven't been to a drive-in in since I was in high school (oh so many years ago). And quite honestly, there isn't much else for entertainment in the area so we took a big sip of Americana and it was quite entertaining. Prices are cheap for a double feature and you could listen via old style speaker, or via your car radio. Plenty of reasonable food options too. Bathrooms are bit iffy though. We stayed for both movies though I'd say half the crowd dissipated after the first one.

It was just as much fun watching the other people; pulling out lawn chairs, sitting in the back of their trucks, first dates... it was heartwarming.

Everything a drive-in should be. Great prices, amazing food (try the Homemade Chocolate Roll or the Frito Chili Pie w/ Cheese) and great music from the 70s and 80s playing before the movie starts. I tell everyone visiting the area to try Kenda. It will make you feel young again and the kids will love it too!

Really good concession stand food at really good prices. Cool nostalgic atmosphere straight out of 1968. Often new movies as double features.

The Kenda Drive-in is such a treasure. It is 10 miles from me and one of two drive-ins in Arkansas. It is open year round. It doesn't cost much at all to get in. The concession stand has great prices too. They have first run movies there. I highly recommend going to see a movie there if you have the chance.

I've been going here since I was a kid. The admition prices are cheap. The food is cheap (it is not like any other movie theater). Their food is also amazing..sometimes we just go for a meal. Might I suggest that you try a burger and bbq nachos some time. YUM!
They just upgraded their projector and the sound. If you listen on your car radio it sounds amazing! There are two bathrooms up by consession (1 mens and 1 womens) but they added a new bathroom just for women that has 3 stalls! Don't have to stand in line anymore..yay! Also, needed to mention that you can listen to the movie through your radio or with an old time speaker. They also offer heaters to put in your car when it's cold. Love this place and everything about it!

You just have to go and do this for yourself. $5 per adult admission for a double feature. The concessions are good and priced ridiculously low. The service is very friendly and fast. You can even get one of those speakers if you don't want to listen to your radio in your car. It is a very memorable experience. We will definitely be going back.
