Just one of the coolest and perhapas last remaining drive-in theaters in the Midwest. Complete with dancing hotdog commercials between movies and the smell of popcorn, candy and sodas all mixed up with dust and the prairie. I got to weather a storm here once...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.
