My wife and I came here while visiting the area for the weekend as I've never been to a drive inn, it was great we had a blast watching Aquaman. I highly recommend visiting if you're in the area.

If you are looking for a small quaint flea market with produce to nuts and bolts, you might find it here. It is mostly new to you items but even when you don't have anything in mind, you will probably walk away with something.

It’s a typical flea market, mostly second hand stuff with a few stalls selling cleaning stuff and toiletries, plenty of produce and free parking. It starts early and finishes about 1 so get there early, worth a visit if you’re in the area.

We really enjoyed our night at the movies. Only draw back was the late comers with their head lights on. Concessions were very reasonably riced too.

No frills old school drive in. Went on a weeknight and thought there were maybe half full. Lots of people left after first movie. Very reasonable admission and concessions. Maybe my only complaint was the parking. Wasn’t sure if you were supposed to park multiple...More

Don't know about the movies but I always enjoy the flea market there. The breakfast they were serving looked very good and I plan to try it on my next visit. Parking ok and restrooms useable. Lots of fun there.

Has anyone been to the Silvermoon Drive-in? (7 Replies)
In our quest to find some "off the beaten track" activities while we are in Orlando I thought it might be nice to go to the Drive-In. My OH and daughter have never been to one (I don't think they were ever really a "thing" in England?) but I grew up in South Africa where our local Drive-In was a regular Saturday night entertainment and I'd love for them to experience that. The nearest drive-in to Orlando is the Silver Moon in Lakeland and I was just wondering if anyone has been and what...More

We have been a few times. It is at the edge of the publix warehousing and processing area which is huge. The directions tell you to look for the publix birthday cake - this is on the top of one of their warehousing buildings which you can see from a fair way away when it is light up. They have two screens showing different films - you can stay for the double bill showing on your screen which a number of cars did. They use a radio channel for the soundtrack so you listen to it via your car...More
