“Pure Fun!”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

Having a Drive-In to share with family and friends is so much fun. Watching the families set up chairs and blankets near their cars for the kids, and seeing neighbors and friends with a smile is priceless. Summer evenings at Hull's brings back memories from my youth. Who says "you can never go home again"?

We stopped here to watch a movie while passing thru Lexington several years ago. We really enjoyed it.

“Love This Place”

It's like taking a trip back in time! Doesn't matter which movie is playing, they're all great when you're watching them from an air mattress with the open sky overhead!

“Go early!”
Reviewed December 4, 2012

When your friends advise you to show up at Hull's at least 2 hours before the movie starts, take them at their word. And don't worry, there's plenty of running space for the kids, so they won't mind.

“Fun and Unique Way to Enjoy a Summer Night”

The opening of Hull's Drive-In is one of the many signs that Spring has arrived in the Blue Ridge Valley. When the sign changes, and the first movies are announced, you know another summer of movies under the stars is about to start. Unfortunately I haven't been able to make it to a movie recently, but still drive by whenever in the area. This is a great way to spend time with family and friends in a way that you can't find in many places anymore.
This amazing landmark was almost lost for good several years ago, but was thankfully saved. Many of the movies they show are relatively new, and the price of admission is far from crazy prices at the movie theaters. There are two movies shown a weekend, with the first one (on Friday and Saturday) being geared towards younger crowds. In addition, when you go you help ensure that future generations will get to share in this tradition.
Certainly it's not as high tech as the IMAX theaters, but if you're looking for a good way to spend time with family and friends while catching a good movie or two...you can't beat the drive in.
Highly suggest stopping by for an evening and catching the movies at Hull's Drive-In!
