Fun time
Jul 2021
A fun experience! Two movies for the price of one! Parking is staggered so your view isn't usually blocked, and with all the lights out the bugs aren't too bad, although you may still want long sleeves and pants if it gets cool.

Awesome experience- BRING CASH
May 2019 • Couples
Went to go see Avengers Endgame and was astounded at the friendliness of staff, price of items, and overall flare this theatre produces. Important thing to note is to bring cash as they do not accept card

A classic drive-in movie theater with first run movies and excellent prices. A great place for the kids or a summertime date.

Great experience
Aug 2017
Love the old school outdoor movie experience. Awesome that you can watch two movies back-to-back. Popcorn quite salty though.

Saw nut job 2 with the family this past Sunday night.
Recommend everyone to bring with them, lawn chairs for each person attending. Cooler bag with snacks otherwise snack bar is open.
Pack sweaters and blankets as we were cold.

A Blast From the Past!
Aug 2017 • Family
What a great way to go back to a simpler time, and you don't even have to be driving a modified Delorean. :-)

Not having been to an actual Drive-In myself in probably over 40 years, this was a real treat for my whole family. The great thing is you can now listen to the whole movie experience, including reminders to head to the refreshment stand and upcoming trailers, on your own car radio / stereo system. I had to explain to my daughter that back in the day, the small poles we parked between (still in place with dangling wires) would have held speakers that you would have to hang on your car window to hear the movie.

The movies are now all digital and first-run, current theatrical releases. We saw Nut Job 2 on our screen, while Screen 2 was showing Dunkirk.

What a great price ($22.00 for two adults and 1 youth) for a night out at the movies, and the popcorn and other concession treats were also super reasonable.

Depending upon your age, if you want to go back in time and re-live a part of your youth than the Starlite Drive-In Theatre is a must do item o n your summertime bucket list.

Under the stars at the Starlite Drive-in
Aug 2017
We had a great night with 2 families 9 of us in total at the Starlite Drive In. Built in 1955 this theater has 2 screens, a small parking area for the older movies at one screen and a very large parking area for the latest releases at the other. They have a fast food concession stand in the main building as well as clean bathrooms. This Drive In has a very dark environment that allows for exceptional viewing of all movies. (next to no light pollution). Very friendly staff with a side order of shooting stars made that night a great outing. Warning: be on time or they will not allow you to enter once the movie stars. They are very strict with this policy.

Brings back great memories
Aug 2017 • Couples
First time to the drive-in in years. What a great experience. Brought back awesome memories from years ago. Forgot how much fun it was sitting in the car with the windows down and the night breeze blowing through. Snacks and drinks from the concession booth, lots of families out enjoying the night. The comfort of your own car seat. Loved it.

Jul 2017 • Family
I've never been to a drive-in in Ontario. The kids enjoyed themselves playing on the kids equipment that was spread out through out screen 1 area. Prices are great 10$per adult 0.25$refills for any size pop&popcorn, unbeatable. Jus a great end to a hot summer day.
