Our three kiddos (ages 5,8 & 11) love to go the drive in! We look forward to the new releases and watching the movies together as a family. The playground is fun for the kids, but as a mom I worry about the terrain and amount of activity around me. It's tricky to keep eyes on my kiddos in the... More

We went to check how was the drive inn, and it was a big surprise, you can watch two movies with a 15 minute break at the end of first movie, they charge you 8 dollars per person, and provide you a radio station number so you can listen to the movies inside your car, nice food and the place...

My husband and I went here with our children. It was very cool we're from East Texas and we don't have a drive in theater. As a matter of fact I don't there are many left. They are very cheap $8 a person for 2 movies and cheap food, big concession building.

If you want a quick meal but don't care to see a movie, drive in directly to concessions and get a Chihuahua or two. It will change your life. If you decide to stay for a movie, just be sure and eat it in the concession area or outside of your vehicle. It's delicious but very messy. The movies are... More

We had a great time at our first drive-in movie with our young children, ages 4 and 2. The movie kept the kids well-entertained. I did not order anything at the snack bar but I looked at the menu and it was plenty varied and the prices looked very affordable. The play structures for kids were nice. My only word... More

Drive-in movie viewing at its best. Great place to take a picnic and a full car load or be brave and simple the food inside the concessions. Be mindful about battery use since the sound system runs through the car and keep jumper cables nearby. A must see venue for family and friends during mild weather in the area. Great... More

2 movies for less than the theatres but it's almost not worth it when the bathrooms aren't clean and toilets are falling apart. The food is mediocre. The nice thing about big Sky is you can bring your own food and beer.

I love going to this drive-in. The food is good and so much to choose from. The only thing negative I can say is not even there fault. The people who run the loud engines, and constantly turn there lights on and off should learn some drive-in etiquette.

Love this place! It's a good place to take the kids and enjoy a night out. Very family friendly! It is a good place to go no matter what the weather is outside.
