“Great Time!”

Attraction details

Loved taking my girls here to experience a drive in theater. The price is right and we stayed and watched the first movie again. Loved being outside. Only complaint is they definately need more bathrooms. The line between movies was too long.

It's a Drive In so what more can I say. It's great way to go to the movies with a group of friends and do something different.

You get to watch two movies for less than what one movie ticket would cost in the theatre. Grab some beers and some popcorns with some friends and you are set.

I have been going to this drive-in since high school (1999) and it has been my favorite way to see movies since. I used to go with friends and girlfriends, and have been going with my wife for years (we live in corona). It is now $8 per person, but it is still completely worth it.

The grounds are clean and navigable, the concession stand is amazing (yes there are long lines most of the time). If you dont want to wait in line, bring your own food, it is fun to be able to eat burgers or tacos or pizza or whatever during a movie.

Definitely get there early is you're going on the weekend, like an hour at least. The weeknights are not so bad and we arrive maybe a half-hour before the show. I love being able to see two movies for the price of one and have fallen asleep more than once only to awaken during the third showing.

Its a fantastic place to be with friends and family and we will continue going at least once a month.
