Awesome way to watch movies! Eat what you want, relax, and enjoy. They do have a snack bar, excellent popcorn BTW, but your car is your domain. Check out the car load nights for families! A whole car load for 1 price. You can sit in your car or outside it on a blanket or lawn chairs. The place has... More

We really enjoyed this drive-in. We went on a Thursday and there was hardly anyone there. There was a concession stand with plenty of choices, and bathrooms were very accessible for the kiddos. The only reason I am not giving it 5 stars is because we really didn't like how the screens faced each other. If you are wanting to... More

The drive in is a fun place to spend the summer nights! I take my kids several times a year. I love that we can bring our own food in, but they do have a nice concession selection at a good price. Seeing two movies is awesome! The sound goes through the car radio. No bug issues. Take a chair... More

Great place to watch 2 movies for the price of one. Like a trip back in time. Plenty of concessions provided on site.

My kids and I love going here! Especially on car load night where you pay one price for everyone. I went to drive in when I was a kid and I am so glad to be able to share that experience with my kids! If you've never been to a drive in this is the place to go! They staff... More

I had never done a drive-in before, but had heard of this place and wanted to do it at least once. It is a very unique experience where you get to watch movies like they used too with the outside venue. They have a concession stand with the typical offerings you would expect. You can sit on your car, in... More

Grandparents showing what their lives were like as children! Plus the food is good! Staff were fun and friendly! Hard part was not running the car for the A/C. Spoils the atmosphere of period music and tray on Windows! Win - win!

It's a good family or couple activity. Make sure to bring extra money for a radio or buy your own to use in the car and be very comfortable for a couple hours. It's a late night thing so if your not a night person say away.
