I've now been to 7 different drive-in theaters. There aren't many open anymore but we make it a point to try and see as many as are still around. This is one of the better ones. The grounds are extremely well maintained. The picture is nice, the people are nice. The food is all pre-made, including the popcorn. Just kept... More

We love Starlite Drive-In and have visited many times. The movies match other theaters and these are not older released movies. Many times Starlite has movies for opening weekend. They often have $12 carload specials almost always three movies but we can only last one or two. We bring our truck and back into the parking spot and watch from... More

Wow, a blast from the past that was awesome! Only $13 for a car load, sound quality if you use radio channel was great. Absolutely loved the whole experience! Two screens with 3 movies for $13? (Including one screen for kids movies) Yes please!

This is not only a great value and time for couples, families and friends. The food is great for a drive in and the prices are great. Movies are usually great picks and pairings. This is a must when they are open.

My family has been going to Starlite for many, many years. The experience is always great. They sell everything you might need at the concession and the cooked food is always hot and fresh. They go out of their way to make your experience special. It is a safe place to take your family.

The Startlite is a great place to see a movie with your family, friends and neighrbors. it is a twin drive-in with one side designated for family shows, PG13 or less while the other side shows adult rated R shows. Concessions are reasonable and give you a glimps into what the old drive-in's were like in the early 50's and... More

Remember the good ole days where a car load of family or friend would pile into a car or truck and go to the drive in? Sit in the bed of a truck or in lawn chairs and watch a movie on a GIGANTIC screen under the open sky and stars shining? It's still possible at the Starlite Drive-In. The... More
