Great drive in movie place. We paid $7 for an adult ticket and got to see two brand new movies (Ghostbusters & The Shallows), great value. The only complaint I have is during the first movie (Ghostbusters) there was two-three blue lines that ran vertical on the screen, they weren't there during the second movie. The consession stand was good... More

We seek out drive in movie theaters wherever we go, this is one of the true gems in a dying pop culture phenomenon. Good, reasonably priced concession food + two movies for the price of one in a chain theater...but you can't put a price on the experience. Please go and support this drive in, they've done a great job... More

I had never visited a drive-in before going to Showboat. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. It was a bit hard to hear because of the multiple car with their windows rolled down, all tuned to the same FM station caused an echo. Overall it was a great way to take in a movie with the kids.

The only movies we see anymore. No rude talking person right beside you and the kid can roll around in the truck bed.

What a fun way to watch a movie. I like how 1 of the 2 screens is usually family-friendly, and plenty of new releases. Get there early as they sell out a number of weekends. We like to go as a family, and often save a few dollars using Groupon. that being said, regular price is reasonable, and the cost... More

Great time and double features of newest movies, price is very reasonable, doesn't open until dark, privacy of your own vehicle.. Bring drinks and snacks but they do have a snack bar with bathrooms. Food is good but gets crowded sometimes... Great place for families and kid, bring your blankets and pillows for a great night out

Great place to go watch a movie. Usually get to watch 2 movies. The food is pretty good and the popcorn is good. You can sit outside or stay in your vehicle. Kids area for before movie starts

We have been coming to The Showboat since it opened in 2006. It is a GREAT night out with the family & two first-run movies for $7 a person is a great deal!! They have typical drive-in food, (but for those that didn't grow up with drive-ins), that means burgers, chicken tenders, nachos, chili cheese fries, popcorn, Slushees and candy!!... More

We've been here quite a few times and just love the place. I grew up going to the drive in back home. So when we seen we had one here we were very happy. Great concessions food. Great picture quality. Very clean and family friendly. Great workers.
