This is an easy evening with the family. Cost is $2/kid and $4/adult for 1st run movies. You get to choose from 2 different screens and each screen shows 2 movies. The bathrooms could be cleaner but other then that it is an incredible value. Bought large popcorn last night for only $4.75 and it comes with a free refill. Where else can you go for a family of 4 and spend less then $20 which includes some snacks. You can also bring coolers if you have the time to pack one. Have fun we always do!

Should have went here long time ago.

So glad we visited this place.. Sooo cooool...

I and my family LOVES to WATCH MOVIES... WE are on movie theater or renting movies all the time..

One time when we were budget conscious, we tried to go at this place. You thought the screen would be blurry and not good. But Nope... It is just as FUN..

It's a moveie place where you would drive-in and pay for each person in the car in a very minaimal prize esp to kids.

Then you tune-in your radion to the alloted radio station.

THere were two theater spots playing different movies..

And you find a parking spot for your car, wherein you could watch either inside the car or you could set-up some picnic ouotside your car and they have speakers distributed on the whole parking lot.

Me and my family prefer inside the car.

THey have concession place too whe re y ou could buy popcorn, soda's, pizza, corndogs, candies etc. Cheaper than the usual movie theaters.

What I LOVE MOST about this theater is that you could bring ANY FOOD and DRINK YOU WANT.. And isn't it the best to do while watching movie? Eating your favorite food and drink like you are just in the house. Only you are watching the latest movie and ofcourse in the BIG SCREEN.

One of the awesome part is they play BACK to BACK MOVIES and we did not need to pay extra fee.

One more thing...

THey do give FREE SCREENING for the community. Isn't a mazing?!!

This is definetely a blast in the past, a good place to have some inexpensive fun. Prices are incredible.....we paid $4.00 per person (2 adults) for that price you can watch the double feature of that screen. The quality of the picture is very good as well as the quality of the audio. The audio is sent through two frequencies for each of the screens. We arrived an hour before the showing, you must arrive early if you want to find a good spot it does fill up quickly and they do not start the movies until the parking area is closed (until the capacity has been reached). Make sure that you park somewhere toward the center as you will get the best of the entire screen. The prices as the concession stand are great! We ordered a 14" Pepperoni and onions pizza for $6.00 it was very good (not NYC quality pizza but still very good) sodas are 2 and 4 and 6 dollars for small, medium and large respectively. If you want to watch the feauture on the other screen you must go back outside and drive back in to pay for the other movie. Now to the bathrooms....well they are not the cleanest and they are not the biggest. The bathrooms really make you feel like you are back in the 50's as they are very musty and old. try to take care of business prior to arriving at the drive in. In total we watched two brand new movies, ate a pizza, drank 2 sodas and only spend $24.00. Cannot beat it. Reach out to me if you have any questions.

I have been to this place three or four different times and enjoyed the experience. I have been with my wife and we have been other times with our friends. Good picture, fun time, just make sure to get there early to get a good parking spot. Cheap movie tickets and good time.

Love love the drive in reminds me of a much simpler time...... Yeah to the moon..... It is very reasonably priced right down to the great foods and candies sold at the concession stand...... Some nights we enjoy dinner and a movie for less a lot less than taking the family to a restaurant then to AMC or COBB.... Our family of 4 are lifetime Silver Mooners.....
