“Great family fun! A must do on our summer fun list every year!”

Georgetown Drive-In Theater
Attraction details
Reviewed June 21, 2013

The Georgetown drivein is a hit with both young and old. Our kids (ages 12, 10 & 7) want to come at least once every summer. It is great to get a group of cars and park together. Take your lawn chairs and go early. It gets crowded and really hard to park as it is closer to movie time. For example, we go at 7:30 for a 9:30 movie. Check the webpage for special fun nights - -sometimes they have the bubble bus or pony rides. They have a playground and basketball hoops. We take frisbees and footballs and the kids play while the adults visit in lawn chairs. Take glow sticks for your kids as it starts to get dark. We take pillows and blankets and let the kids camp out in the back of the van or on blankets on the grass. It is ALWAYS FUN!! Very family friendly.

There is a concession stand. Drinks are $2.25 (no refills) as are slushies. We usually take our own cooler and pop our own popcorn. You also pay by the person on most movie nights, not by the carload. However, you get to see 2 movies for that price back to back. If you have little ones, you may want to park closer to the front, as there is a second screen at the back to the side and sometimes it is not playing a G movie even if you are there to see a G movie on the big screen. Just position your car closer to the front so your kids don't see something you don't want them to.

All in all a favorite experience. There is a McDonalds at the exit heading towards the theater too and a mexican restaurant right near if you need food before you go in. Or want to take in dinner. There is blueberring picking at this same exit if you want to go early and pick at Bryant's Blueberry farm and then head in to see the movie. That is a favorite trip every year too! Have fun!

If you want to do something different with the kids, plan a night at the drive -in! Brings back memories and so much fun! Most families "tail-gate" and bring blankets, lawn chairs, ice chest with snacks and drinks. There are concessions available as well.

Been going to the Drive-in for at least 15 years. It is a great family experience for young and old alike. The concession stand prices are VERY reasonable and they have special events during the summer..Opens in late spring and Closes in late October.

That is all I can say... Nostalgia! No... I'll say more. I love the way the cars park in tiers so that the ones behind you can still see the movie screen. The place is always clean and cheerful. it's like stepping back in time! I love that about it. I hope it stays for a long long time.
