We took our son here to experience a drive in. Having never been ourselves it was an amazing opportunity to see what our elders had talked about. I would have to say this is one trip we will never forget.

We had a great time. It was my kids first Drive in and we saw The secret life of pets. The speakers needed to be updated but we were there early enough to find one that worked well to get the real drive in experience. The food at the snack bar left a lot to be desired. Hot dogs and... More

I mean what can I say its a drive in and who doesn't want to experience this with the kiddos at least once. We had a great time. The only flaws were the speakers. I mean at $9 a person and no indoor renovations needed I would think they could invest in updating the speakers. They do make up for... More

We used to come here with the kids when they were little. We parked the minivan backwards and all 4 of us sat on the back bench, which we reversed to sit facing out the back. That was part of the fun. All jammed together on the seat while the kids' tushies were small enough that we'd all fit. I... More

Not many places like this are left. Really a great little drive-in with two screens. Bring a radio or prepare to leave your car running because the provided speakers don't work. Some do work, but most of them don't. The snack bar is small, but serves what you would expect at a movie theater. A must visit if you are... More

great for drive-ins, but the bathrooms really smelled and were not clean at all. They did not have paper towels to dry your hands off.. at the beginning of the night! I cant imagine what it was like in between movies. It was opening night of Dory so they were REALLY busy, but the bathrooms need much more upkeeping. Other... More

Coming from the jersey shore drive-in movie theaters are not something we have. So when we saw it on our way to Walmart while visiting Lake George we couldn't wait to go there. They were showing Finding Dory which was perfect for our four year old and the weather was perfect. Upon showing up we paid and told the guy... More

Not many drive ins left and that's a shame..nice place to spend a summer evening with the kids 2 movies per screen per night..get there a little early to visit the snack stand. It gets crowded, and to toss a ball with the kids. Great value.

We have been going to the Glen Drive-in since our kids were very little they r now 19,22. We still all go and enjoy 2 movies for the price of one. Enjoy the fresh air of being outside playing some catch till the movie starts. They also have a great concession stand filled with all your favorite movie time foods.... More
