We have been coming here since it opened although it gets so crowded now that the secret is out!! $7 for 2 movies is a steal. They show all the latest releases. I think the owners now try to pack too many ppl into the screens for bug features and for someone in the back makes for a not so good experience. Used to they did not allow trucks or suvs in front but they have let that policy lax as well so if in a car u maybe parking behind a truck on a busy night. Summer months I recommend you arrive 1 to 1 1/2 hours before the 9pm start time. Yes 9pm even tho website says 8:30 anyone that knows anything about drive in's knows it must be dark. I don't mind the late start. All in all we really love it but definitely needs improvement in snack bar and rest room cuz the lines are unbearable!

The price per person and the snackbar prices are a great value. They say movies starts at 8:30 but wasnt dark enough until 9:00. 1st movie ended at midnight. We listened on the car radio in the air conditioning. I will go back in the Fall or Winter when it gets dark sooner and the nights are a bit cooler.

Better than a movie theatre. Kids can roam and you can bring your fur kids too. The snack bar could use improvement. $3.00 for a stale burger with dried cheese to me is a bit much. Nacho cheese looks fresh and they really should offer at least one free drink refill . You definitely have to use your own radio to hear the movie for their speakers are mostly busted. Would definitely recommend it for movie time with family and friends tho.

They have 5 (or is it 6) screens, a miniature golf course and a WONDERFUL snack bar. Reasonable prices. They kids have a place to play and it has been a safe place to spend an evening. If you go during mosquito season make sure you bring some good outdoor repellent with DEET. And if you go during the really hot months it's a good idea to bring some cooling neck wraps and hand-held fans. But all in all...........it's a economical and fun way to spend an evening.

Great price of $6 per person. The concession stands were not great and had an extremely long wait time. If you get the funnel cake do not get a topping completely ruined the cake. The digital projectors make for a good showing, though the subtitles were difficult to read from near the back. I would suggest getting there early, we arrived just at what was posted was the start time and couldn't get in for 30 minutes or so, but the shows didn't start on time either.
