Thank you for NOT updating your website so today, after we bought batteries for the portable radio, packed up the lawn chairs, radio, flashlight and beach towels, herded our family into the car, and drove ONE HOUR from Gainesville for a rare fun night out, I find out the movies were cancelled tonight due to a livestream concert. I did check Facebook this morning but it still said “Now Showing” for movies. I appreciate you providing a Blake Shelton concert instead of movies- it gives folks the chance to see a concert while distancing but just a few minutes on the website or a more clear Facebook post would have been so nice for the rest of us. We weren’t the only car making a u-turn at the gate.

Ocala Drive Inn is the best thing! $6 a ticket for 2 movies and the best food! Best chicken wings, fried green tomatoes, catfish, pizza,burgers, hot dogs, fried mushrooms popcorn etc.! I thank them for practicing social distancing and there non contact car delivery services! It's the only normal thing I can do with pre-existing conditions.I have been going for years I will continue to go and have fun!family oriented place. Mrs Leesburg!

First time back at a drive in in more than 40 years! What a great time, enjoyed our date night. Food was typical, tried the burger and wings and catfish. Fountain drinks and bottles water from the concession stand. What a bargain, we watched 2 movies! Double feature! Awesome awesome. Ticket price was 6.00! (Plus a 10.00 food voucher to use at the concession stand)

Nice drive in,decent experience. Would’ve been better if large trucks weren’t blocking the entire screen and mini vans with trucks open weren’t allowed to park in the first two rows. Called to complain no answer no reply,

Last Drive-in that I know of; brings back great memories of when I was a kid. You get 2 movies for 6 dollars and the concession stand isn’t over priced.
They have a play place for the kids to use before the movies start and in-between the movies.

We are young irish couple that spent one night in Ocala, wanted to do a classic American drive in and I wasn't disappointed. Messages the them one Facebook the evening of and got a response immediately. Met the owner at the Gate as I had some stupid question about how it worked and where is best to go. 6 dollars and you get two movies. Food was great with a huge amount of choice. We watched screen two which is smaller but still very good quality and sound worked great in the car. It really felt like what I have seen in the older movies. Loved it from start to finish. Great experience!!!

We have came her many times. The drive in is so great! Please guys don’t pack in food. Let’s keep this place for many years to come. Every teen I bring with my daughter is like I have never been to a drive in... families come on! This is value for groups!
And on two occasions I have needed a jump (bad Battery) and they have jumped my car. Awesome experience and value!

When I found out this drive in was open I knew I had to take my children there. I remember there being a drive in and my family would always go watch movies there. My children, aged 17 to 6, all loved it. Bring your chairs and some mosquito spray and watch one or both of the movies. Absolutely one of the best family times is when we are there together! We have gone 5-6 times now but because it's over an hour away we don't get to go nwar as much as we would like. LOVE this place!

Although the Ocala Drive-In is not much to look at, their movies are first run, their prices are insanely low, and having the concession stand open throughout the shows is so convenient. We were able to see a double feature and get food all for the price of just one ticket a normal theater. I think the double feature ticket price was just $6 a person. I would recommend this place to anyone.
