I always went to drive-in’s as a kid but most have closed so when I heard there was one nearby I went as soon as possible. My friend and I drove up from Spokane and the two movies were Mission Impossible and Equalizer 2, both...More

The Auto Vue has undergone some major upgrades in the past year so it is really an experience you don't want to miss. One of only 22 still functioning drive in theaters in the US and a much loved weekend past time for many local...More

My son-in-law and I took the kids to see Cars 3. Cost was $5 per person. The parking area was clean, but there were several large gopher holes that presented safety hazards when walking in the dark. There was a snack concession on site, and...More

Such fun in the summer. A new screen and the sound is through the car radio. You just can't beat the fun of a drive-in. Great to take the kids!

It took a long time to get this drive-in theatre back in business, but the community was behind the owner all the way and was very happy when he was back and showing movies again.

It's old, low tech, and bad pop corn. That said, prices fair, it may not be around next year. There is a strong community effort to try and save this relic. It's still a nice place for family to go. They will have to upgrade...More

The sole remaining drive in movie in Eastern Washington. So much fun in the warm summer days to watch a movie this old fashioned way. Sadly 2013 will be the last season for this historic attraction.

It is one of the last remaining drive-in movie theaters in the region, they always play current movies, are very family oriented, and you can't beat the price. Movies start when it gets dark, but don't push it when it comes to getting there early...More
