We went to the Malta Drive-in two wks. in a row. It is different from when we were young. You use your car radio to listen to the movie. No more having to attach these big speakers onto your window. We got popcorn and soda at the concession building. They had quite a number of things to eat there. We... More

Malta Drive In has been around for many many years. It's a great place to take the kids to see a movie. They keep it up nicely. The snack bar has some really good eats and the movie experience costs a lot less than the indoor theaters. A great touch of Americana, that I hope, lasts forever.

Went to this theatre tonight with my daughter and 7-year-old granddaughter, who has never been to a drive in. It was the first night for "Finding Dory.'. We arrived a little after 7:30 for an 8:55 showing, and we secured a good spot for viewing. They didn't have a playground, as I remember drive ins had growing up in the... More

DH and I go to the drive-in at least a couple of times each summer. We love this one. It's close to home, shows first-run movies, and with two screens, offers a variety. Where else can you see two movies for $18?

Traveled through the area - and the hotel suggested we do this for the evening. Great place, movie was clear and sound was awesome - the snack bar was a favorite too. Well done!

I have been here plenty of times and its always fun. It's great to get two movies for the price of one, and the movies are usually the ones playing in theatres.

It is easy to get to and has great sets of movies to watch. They are all new releases and gives you a chance to watch two movies for a great low price.
