This is an old school drive in. Bring a portable radio and wear long sleeved clothing and you are ready to watch the movie. They let you bring in snack and soft drinks too, They also have a snack bar. This is the best activity I have ever been to in the Dells. Old school fun!

It was great to be able to take our girls to experience a drive-in. Big Sky is very family friendly with no rated R movies. Bring bug spray and your own snacks (although they do have a snack bar.) Some of us sat in folding chairs, some sacked out in the back of the van with the hatch up, and... More

I took my 9 year old grandson here Saturday night thinking he would be bored without his video games. He loved the snack bar, playing with kids until it got dark and laying on the top of my car watching the movie. Pleasant surprise.

Great old-school drive in. Two screens showing 2 double features (but you have to pick a screen, you can't hop from one to the other). Pack properly: comfy chair, bug spray (just in case), a blanket or sweatshirt, a radio (with extra batteries) and a flashlight to check the ground before you leave. Don't count on your car radio -...

Brought back great memories of our childhood drive-in trips. Big Sky even has the 60's style entrance/exit signs and the posts where the speakers used to hang. Now the sound comes thru your car radio. First run movies (2), though our kids were too tired to make it thru the 2nd movie. Bathrooms were updated and super clean. Snack bar... More

This makes for a late night, but it is an awesome drive in and you can usually get a great spot in at front. There is a snack bar if you want a late dinner or popcorn. We bring camp chairs, blankets and bug spray, and let the kids sleep in their sleeping bags in the back of the SUV.... More

The best part about the drive in is the prices. It saves a lot of money when you can bring in your own snacks, not to mention the 2 for 1 movie. I have not been to other drive in to compared but it really does need updating. I've read here they have a security guard but i can tell... More

Big Sky Drive In offers the choice of 2 Double Features! We have gone multiple times, usually during the week, and have always had a great time! For our group, 7 kids, 2 adults, it was $41...that's for two movies! We saw Minions and Pixels...sound and picture were great....it was a perfect night!

If you visit in the summer, go EARLY. It opened at 7:45. We showed up about 7:50 and the line was out of the drive in and down the street. I was worried about them having room for us, but we made it in and had a great time. We were able to bring in our cooler with drinks and... More
