When you don't feel like dressing up but need some entertainment, this is the best compromise. Great that the new owners are showing new releases and some classics too. When our kids were younger we would throw an air mattress& pillows in the back of the SUV and take a couple of folding chairs for added comfort. Pack your own goodies to save more $. Don't forget the mosquito repellent! EVER!

Went last weekend, for $8.00 (2) adults to see (2) movies that are still in the theaters! Clean bathrooms, which is a plus! Friendly staff & good prices for what we got @ the concession stand! Definatey going back!

For the most part, this is exactly what what a flea market should be: people showing up with stuff trying to get rid of it. There are a few people trying to get rich but they are easy enough to pass by. They run on Saturday and Sunday but don't expect many vendors if it is rainy out. Cool temps didn't seem to bother anyone though

Wonderful for kids as you can take your whole family out for a drive in movie. Food is pretty good as well and low in price.

First... I love Drive-Ins. They are a trip back to a simpler happier time. We had 3 of them where I grew up and it was always a great family and young adult time when we went.

The Silver Moon is one of the oldest (if the THEE Oldest) continually operating drive-in in the US. 48 continuous years or something like that. I load up the kids and take the 45 min drive down I-4 from Orlando at least 3 times a year. The price is right $4 adults and $1 for kids under 12. They have two screens and usually two 1st run movies on each. The concessions are reasonable too and the staff is plentiful (there were at least 10 kids working in there Friday). A large pepperoni pizza is $7 (and pretty good), popcorn is $2.50 and a beer is $2. You can bring in a cooler so you don't even have to buy anything if you don't want to.

Fridays and Saturdays are pretty full so get there early to avoid the traffic and having to drive thru the lot with your lights on after the movie's started. Everyone hates that.

It's almost all families so there's not much of a danger factor. (I saw where someone asked in a TA Forum if it was safe).


It's a lot of fun for cheap and a little drive.
