This is so much fun for groups, families, and dates. You get at least a double feature and sometimes a triple feature for less than you would spend for one movie ticket in a theater. You can pack your own food or eat at the concession stand which has very reasonable prices. We take the truck, some lawn chairs and... More

There aren't too many drive-ins left and I am old enough to remember them when there were. This one is as close to the classic drive-in as you can imagine. Except for the sound coming from your radio instead of a box hanging on your car window, it is pretty much the same. My husband and I have been going... More

What a precious jewel! We're so luck to have a family oriented drive in movie. It's just like when I was a kid in the 50's and it's one of the last. The facility is excellent with recent upgrades to the projection system. The concession stand is clean and the food is good and reasonably priced. Keep supporting this great... More

Okay I guess... not something I would drive again to ramble through. There is plenty of antiques if that's what one is looking for but the vendors seen to be expensive to me.

Be sure to wait in line to get in! People will jump the line by passing up all the cars waiting to turn and do a u-turn down a side road to pop back in to the line of traffic! Once inside it's a family environment. The concessions is packed but has hot and cold treats that really add to... More

Great time for all..triple feature. We go to this drive in several times a year. They always show the newest movies, so don't think you will have to watch last years shows. Full concession stand as well as the choice to bring in your own food., but if you smell the popcorn there is no way to resist. Check there... More

Brings back memories from the past. The video / audio are fantastic. Fun family entertainment. Bathrooms are small, don't wait until the last minute, there's going to be a line!

Had a couple dates here and it's fun. Only complaints are the food service area is always packed inside and the bathrooms need to be bigger.

A blast from the past! Gates open at 7 and they only allow 400 cars in. So pack a blanket, picnic, chairs and prepare to have a relaxing summer night. Listen to the 50's music and go back in time. Great for the whole family or just a few friends. Everyone was well behaved even the kids. Get there early... More
