Our family always has a great time visiting the drive thru. It’s such a nice change of pace to sit outside and watch movies with our family, eat snacks, and enjoy the weather. So glad this is still around and hope it continues!

The 49er is a fun evening out for a family, especially if the kids have never been to drive-in movie. The films are first run--we saw Spiderman: Far From Home on the first day of its national release. The 49er Diner offer several meal deals...More

If you'd like a date night with your significant other, you're better off traveling to Melody Drive in where you have a choice of 2 screens and movies adults can watch. Throughout the whole season 49er might have 5 movies that adults would want to...More

A great spot to meet up with friends to catch a double feature. I love that the '49er is in my town since drive-ins are rare these days. The concessions offer fast food combo meals such as sandwich, fries & soda for reasonable prices as...More

What a great way to spend a summer evening! Two shows for the price of one, great snack stand, and lots of family fun!

My husband and I try to go here once every summer. It's $10 a piece for two movies. The only downfall is their restrooms. We like going here. It's good for date night. We'll keep our yearly tradition of going.

We love to come early, get a nice spot to park and play Frisbee near the screen with the kids. We bring some food and get drinks, popcorn and ice cream from the concessions. The lines are long for those and the restrooms. So get...More

I recommend bringing your own food and drink. It is a fun activity that is very affordable. The food they sell is gross and overpriced. They started the previews/ start of the movie before it was completely dark out. Use the restroom before you get...More

No, it's cash only. They have an ATM but it's generic and charges for cash withdrawal.
