This was a lot of fun. The snack bar had a lot of different and affordable options. The playground for the kids prior to the movie was nice but the equipment definitely needs a facelift. Overall, we had fun.

This place is awesome. What a great way to watch a movie. Reasonable prices, better food than any standard movie theatre, and you are outside! Everyone visiting the area should visit this place at least one time.

Always a nice experience. And so reasonably priced for getting a double feature. Always worth the trip and something different to do.

They do state "No outside food". I don't see where a box of candy or something would be against the rules, but don't bring a picnic and set it up outside your car. They make their profits on the concession stand, so if... More

There are no signs stating no dogs, and I have seen people with your pets. I'm sure they want them on leashes and for owners to pick up after them since children play on the property before the movies.
