“Must visit!”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

Brackley Drive in is a wonderful family experience, or even for a date night! Each week there are two new movies playing and you get to watch both for a very good price. Admission also includes a regular drink from the canteen. The staff are very friendly and very accommodating to make sure your visit to the drive in is a rememberable one. The popcorn and refreshments are always fresh and taste amazing. I highly recommend the drive in to anyone visiting PEI. It is like a trip back in time but with amazing movie quality.

“Drive-in Experience”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

What's more fun than snuggling in to see a movie at a drive in. Great experience, and we go several times every year.

“A real old-fashioned experience”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

With a new screen and clear sound, this easily replaces going to a studio theatre. Friendly Island service, reasonable prices, and decent selection at the retro canteen. Give it a try!

“Relax and Enjoy!”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

I love everything about the Brackley Drive-in! It is family friendly, has current movies with great line-ups, and the food is enjoyable too. It has a retro feel about it, which I love. Park your car and just relax. Climb in the back seat, take off your shoes, and enjoy the huge screen. A place where you can enjoy a new movie, but still talk to the people in your car without disturbing others. A great experience. Something I love every summer.

“Affordable Activity for All Ages”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

The Brackley Drive-In Theatre is a must see for visitors of all ages. Open between May-September, the Drive-in is an affordable family activity just 15 minutes from Charlottetown.

One of the few drive-ins left in Atlantic Canada, the Brackley Drive-In features a 5 story tall screen, along with canteen services and 50's music before the show to give it a really retro feel. In the canteen, you will find affordable snacks (though you can bring your own as well), along with a vintage Coca Cola machine, jukebox and more.

Your admission fee ($10.00 for adults, $7.00 for children) includes a double bill, as well as a drink from the canteen. For larger groups, you have the option of paying for a car load at $30.00, which does not include free drinks.

When one goes on vacation, generally going to a movie isn't at the top of the list of things to do, but the Brackley Drive In Theatre is so much more than just a trip to the movies. Don't miss it!
