“Ok, not great”
Reviewed November 29, 2011

This place is in a pretty seedy part of town despite what other elude too. The upside to that is its price. Starlight is a very cheap way to see a double feature.

The grounds are not well kept and neither are the facilities. Sometimes the sound is a little off. We used to go here in college with a couch and a bunch of people to hang out with a movie in the background rather than watch the movie. It is not the best movie watching experience. If you are visiting Atlanta your time is best spent else where. If you live here then you may want to check it out.

“First time going to a drive-in”
Reviewed May 27, 2011

This was my first time going to a drive-in movie and I really enjoyed it. Very economical and easy to find the place. We actually stayed for both movies (Rango & Thor). It was cold the night we where there, but I can this really being fun during the summer months.

There is something I do take issue with...I've read reviews prior to going and people mentioned that it was in the "seedy" part of town. It is not in the "seedy" part of town..it's in the black part of town. If you are scared of black people than you may have a problem...

Overall, I had a great time and experience, I wish we had one closer to home, because it is truly the way to go, especially if you are trying to save a few bucks.

“Going back in time”
Reviewed March 31, 2010

The starlight is an old drive in on the east side of Atlanta that feels like you went back to the 50's. I like to take dates and lay a blanket in the back of my SUV and enjoy the show. The lot has stadium levels for vehicles and has the sound pumping through your car window. A must do in Atlanta if your native to the area!
