Great historic family fun

It's hard to find a true drive-in movie theater but the town of Lamar has a great one! This drive-in usually features two current feature films back to back for one low price!

This is a drive in that is like going back in the 50s. Projectors have been updated. They have a good snack bar.

We had a group of 8 cars and the owner was very accommodating and welcoming. She even offered to rope off an area so we could park together, though we told her this wasn't necessary. The owners and other patrons were very friendly. The theater was clean with a good sound system and good concessions. We would return.

A great place to relax, get out of the daily hassle and enjoy turning the clock back while still seeing a first run movie. Again, this drive-in is one... More
