I love the drive in. The only thing I didn't like was the echo. It's hard to hear because the sound on the vehicle is delayed from the sound on the little boxes. The food at the snack bar was tasty and the service was...More

Starlite drive-in is incredibly affordable! You can see 2 or 3 movies per screen for a low price. They have 2 screens to choose from. Starlite has new digital projectors and the picture has a pretty decent quality for a drive-in. They have intermission so...More

Such a fun thing for the price. Highly, recommend going. This is the 3rd time I've been and each time it's neat. So much better than just a regular movie.

Who wouldn't want to visit a drive-in theater nestled among the pines on a summer evening? The Star-Lite Drive-In has two screens which, for one ticket, show THREE films! The one downside is that in the summertime, the first showing starts at night, which means...More

This place is a class act! It feels retro right from the turn into the drive, but at the ticket booth you can use a credit card! I get a kick out of watching the retro animated advertisements for the snack bar. For retro ticket...More

I grew up with drive in theatres. There fewer and farther between as the years go by. Starlite Drive-In is clean, well lit twin theatre. They also have radio signal sound, so you can listen through your car stereo system.
