Oldschool style drive-ins with a rock and roll themed cafe that sells American food. Food is pretty average but the drive ins are cheap ($10 per person) good lazy date night, if you want to go to the movies in the comfort of your own car.

We have always loved coming here for the last 12 years but now it seems to be full or rude and inconsiderate people. We arrived at the Drive-in, parked and had some dinner. Probably about 15 minutes before the movie was due to start, a large van parked up in front of us and opened up their tailgate. My partner... More

I used to come here a lot as a teenager, back when you had to hang the speaker on your windows! Its really a great night out, cheap too if you bring your own food and wine. Just a little annoying lining up with the traffic before the movies start but that cant be avoided.

A great little get away and a different experience to the normal cinemas, it's like going back in time. I would recommend doing it at least once to experience it.

I know this sounds strange but we went to the Drive In without a car, as we were staying at the Atura Hotel next door- no issues for staff, very helpful and they provided us with a deck chair each. My son and I loved the retro cafe and the whole experience. It has 2 screens/2 movies playing so there... More

We had heard that the place had an upgrade and we where looking forward to trying it out, but unfortunately the amenities have just had a coat of paint and not much else. Although the restaurant has had very nice makeover the food was not very good the menu was very limited. I had smokey BBQ wings which were smothered... More

It's warming up, so it's great seeing movies at the Blacktown Drive-In again. We continue to get great customer service from the staff, and prefer to see a movie here than at the cinema. Please don't ever close!

Revamped facilities Great for dates, families and socialising. Very cheap entertainment. 1950s style cafe experience. If you feel nostalgic this place has the charm of taking you there
