A unique experience for us, from Holland

We stay at the motel next door. The drive in is included. We never went to one, we don't have them in Holland. Yesterday, we went to Secret Life of Pets. Tonight, we go again.

I love living in Montreal, Quebec. We are so spoiled. We have great food, awesome sight seeing and most people are perfectly bilingual and have a true lust for life.The only thing lacking in Montreal and surrounding areas is an English drive in. We have drive in's everywhere in Quebec but all of them (except for Thursday nights in St-Eustache)... More

Fun if you like drive-ins! We got to attend for free as guests at the Starlight Inn next door, and you can choose from several movies playing simultaneously. We could see fine ftom the car, but it was a lovely evening, and I wish I would have brought a chair so I could sit up front.

Such a fun time for all you can get here early and your kids can play on the playground or go have dinner in the snack area. I would recommend their hand cut fries and the double cheeseburger. Their fries are the best in town. You can't beat the prices for 2 or some nights three movies for 9.00. I... More

So nice to be able to still go to a drive in movie. So many people don't have access to a drive in in their town or state anymore and what a shame that is. Sunset is keeping that magical piece of history alive in Colchester,Vt Take your children and show them the magic of watching a movie under the... More

Our family goes to the drive-in every summer. Sunset Drive-In in Colchester still has the original play ground for the kids. I absolutely love it.

Love the drive in...great fun! Food is good but a bit pricey, as expected. I have been going here for years. It is one of the few affordable things left to do with a family.

The Sunset Drive-In, located in beautiful Colchester, VT, is a gem! A wonderful family-friendly venue, great variety of movies on 4 large screens, 50’s style snack bar, very affordable prices, vintage playground with picturesque sunsets and plenty of opportunities to stargaze! Open April - October. On any given night you’ll find little ones in slippers and PJ’s snuggling in blankets... More

I was looking forward to going to the drive in up in Vermont. There aren't any left at all within an hour of where I live.

Great Friday evening watching 1970s classics. We stayed at the adjacent Starlight Inn (great little motel!) and the room came with free tickets to the drive-in. My first time seeing "Jaws" on a giant screen and it was great fun! The guy who owns the motel also owns the drive-in, and it's clearly a family business for business and for... More
