Took my family of 5, cost was very fair for 2 movies. $37 to get in. You are allowed to bring your own snacks. Popcorn and drinks reasonably priced and 1/2 price refills in between movies. Great family experience at a very fair price.

I love coming here with my family, we bring food, a table, and chairs. As mentioned, I usually bring food, but kids always want a little something more for the concession stand. There are no “bad seats.” The Drive-In make for great memories!!

This was our first drive-in movie. My son is four, and he really enjoyed watching the Incredibles 2 outside. It was an incredible experience!!! Highly recommend it. They show two movies, and you are entitled to stay for both, if you so desier!

I enjoyed myself a lot! One downside may be the lack of clarity of certain movies. Just saw the Conjuring 2, and because the movie was so dark, it was so hard to actually see a lot of scenes. Other than that, I really enjoy...More

I enjoyed seeing double features as a child with my family and I also enjoy the drive-in with my wife and two young boys. The place has not changed much over the years. There is a system on where to park (depending on vehicle type)....More

How nice it is that we have this drive in practicality in our own backyard. This theater is part of bygone era. There aren't many left in the New York State. Great fun, bring your lawn chairs, mosquito spray and popcorn and have some good...More

We thought it would be rained out, but when we called an hour before the movie, they said there would be a movie. The drive-in is a little tricky to get to. When I thought we were a little lost, we got good directions. When...More

I got there at about 8:15 on a "busy night". That's the best time to arrive and get a great spot and set up.
