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

The starlight is one of the best parts of Wichita! It is great to pack up the kids and chairs and spend the night out getting to see 3 movies for the price of 1. It is also very clean and the staff is very friendly.

If you're looking for an "old school" approach to the movie experience, look no further. The Starlite Drive-In is the one and only drive in theatre in Wichita. The prices are very fair, as it's charged by the car load. The Snack shop is a little pricey, but which one isn't, right? This is a very good place to go... More

We had an amazing time! We are visiting from San Antonio and came with my brother and sister in law and we both have new babies which makes seeing a movie any other way impossible! Glad to know these are coming back! They just opened one close to us recently! Concessions were clean and very efficiently run so we were... More

What more can be said, comfortable night, 3 movies under the stars. Lawn chairs, cooler, pizza, sitting in the back of the truck.

Fun, inexpensive place to take the family or friends. Specials in the spring and fall let you take the whole carload for $12.
