What a fantastic night out to make a change from the theme parks of Orlando. On a whim we checked to see if there were any drive in movie theatres left in the USA and there are a few near Orlando. Not two minutes down the road but just 35 minutes down the I-4 and only $5 per person! An... More

Two movies and a beautiful night. Brought lawn chairs and a boom box and sat in front of the van and enjoyed a beautiful night and 2 movies for 5 bucks a head. Speakers are available on the metal stakes which surprised me if you don't bring a radio to sit outside. Well lit, several parking attendants which was needed... More

We visited SilverMoon Drive In late year on our holiday in Florida ane we absolutely loved it, a real piece of American nostalgia and at an amazingly low price. I love anything to do with the 50s so this was always going to be a must for our visit so much so that when we return to Florida shortly (yes... More

It's hard to watch a movie with toddlers. This is perfect. Kids stay put in the car. Prices are insanely reasonable. It's not $85 For a small popcorn and drink lol. Admission is $5 per adult and a dollar for a child. Cant beat that.

We had SO much fun here. Got here about 70 minutes prior to the movie, so had a great parking spot. Took out our lawn chairs, then went to the snack bar where the super helpful people got us pizza, popcorn, etc. Spent the time before the show listening to music, and just enjoying the vibe of this super cool...

Went to Silvermoon drive in last week because my daughters have never been to a drive in before. We live 2 hours away on the east coast but this was absolutely worth the trip! There are two screens and each has a double feature. The admission was only $5 per person, for two current block buster movies, that is super... More

Just discovered an amazing piece of Americana for visitors to central Florida (and also residents, if they don't already know about it). A genuine, honest-to-jiminy drive-in movie venue! It's in Lakeland, so call it a 40-45 minute drive from the vacation villas to get there and it's a fantastic night out. Here's the deal - two movies for five dollars.... More

I love going to this movie theatre because you can be in the comfort of your own vehicle. We have never had issues with being able to see the screen but it is deff smart to get there a tad bit early so you can get a good spot. So e people park and bring chairs and sit on top... More
