The staff was friendly and helpful. The experience was great. Much more fun and comfortable than going to a traditional cinema. We will be back for sure. Looks like a great place to bring kids, too.

You can spot this drive in carved out of a cornfield right off US 61 just south of Maquoketa, in Delmar (exit 153). It looks pretty lonely during the day, but the Saturday night we attended, it was packed full with people of all ages....More

If you go online to 61 Drive In Theatre, they have a phone # that you can call. It also gives movie listings, coupons, & rules. I don't remember seeing any when we were there. They don't allow pets, grilling, or smoking... More
