Reviewed June 12, 2012

Try getting around this part of Sparks without seeing graffiti; it's almost impossible. It's a low rent area.

“Neighborhood has gone down”
Reviewed January 10, 2012

The drive in itself is pretty much the same It closed for a while and everyone was thrilled when it re opened but I have seen too many young people just standing around nearby and there is some gang activity in that area I wish they could re open in another area Families use bring lawn chairs coolers and lots of kids Nice once you are inside

“A rare feet, fun at night in the summer heat :)”
Reviewed May 3, 2011

Drive in movie theatres are hard to come across anymore. This one offers 4 screens and 8 movies per week. Cheap tickets, good layout, bring your own food to save money, can smoke in your car, crank your radio, or even toss out a matress or lawn chairs for your own custom comforts. Always fun with great movies at a great cost

“VERY Overcrowded, No crowd control, Safety hazaqrd, Dirty”
Reviewed July 30, 2009

The customers set up lawn chairs in the driving lanes and wherever they want. There is no safety controls and they crowd more cars in even when there is no place to park. The management is childish and rude.

Avoid this place.
