I love that the drive in is still around...we go from Barrie to ORO- about 20 minutes up hwy 11. They have reinvigorated the drive in experience...same as when I was a kid...love it. They are also very well priced for the experience

To those complaining about not being allowed to screen hop - did anyone ask why?? The movie industry is paid by the number of viewers and it’s monitored. The business can actually be heavily penalized for misreporting the number of viewers for each movie -...More

Went to the drive in on a Saturday night for the first time in over 25 years. It was like stepping back in time. Snack shack, kids in pjs and they even played a Cartoon just like they did back then. Had a wonderful time.

The nostalgia of this place! If you grew up going to a drive in this won't disappoint! Three screens, there's something for everyone. Get there early enough as the cars line up. Create memories the kids will love forever!

Been going here for years, not bad for what you pay. Bring some screen (maybe off an temporary gazebo) and drape it over the car from the front windows back to keep the mosquitoes out! Good chow in the snack bar too

Nostalgic fun on a warm summer evening. Fun for the whole family. The privacy of your own car and sound system. Some popcorn and a hotdog from the concession stand and you, the kids and Fido are all set.

Great value, great night out for couples or families. Really glad they have started to use less salt on the popcorn. One of the best parts of going to the movies is getting popcorn but when they have too much salt on it, it spoils...More

A great three-season movie venue! The summer triple features & dusk-to-dawn's are awesome! Even if you only stay for the first movie, the admission price is WAY better than local theater chains. Snack prices are ridiculous but again slightly better than chain theaters. Can be...More

We went on a cheap night and my family of four got in for $18. The kids really had fun playing on the old time playgrounds that I remember as a kid. The food prices were reasonable compared to a regular movie theatre.

Terrible new management has turned this once great family night out into a corporate and confrontational disaster. At no point were we told that it was prohibited to switch screens. When we switched screens to watch a movie more appropriate for our family, we were...More
