We came to the 10:25 movie which started 30 min late. With 3 little kids, it's late enough. The movie was nice, restrooms were clean, I would come back.

A flashback to the olden days watching a movie from your car, food was moderate and 2 movies for $7 is great. The only suggestion I have is for everyone to please turn off their headlights for the ENTIRE movie, it's not fair to those cars parked in the front. Overall a very good experience.

Takin' it back to the way, way back. It probably seems counter-intuitive to engage with a community by sitting in your car, safely encapsulated. But the Highway 21 Drive-In Theater is a perfect cross section slice of the Beaufort Lowcountry. Couples, young families, Service members with some downtime all mingle as the sun goes down.

Took the kids to see Finding Dory for their first drive-in experience, and apparently so did all of Beaufort County! They delayed the start of the movie to accommodate all the cars, but I just wish they would have had an additional register or a cash only line or credit card only line for concessions. My husband waited in line... More

Affordable to see a new release & great to sit back & relax in your car. Unique experience & our nine year old loved it! It was a fun family outing that we will definitely try again! Bring your own snacks or get traditional movie food!

Perfect price point! Friendly and prompt service!! We wanted something different. We live in Bluffton. It's about an hour away from HH. Near Paris Island. We got feature films for $7 per adult. Three dollars for children. They have fresh eats, fresh popped pop corn. Go enjoy, relive your child hood. Very clean and fun for everyone. We must keep... More

We travel from Charleston to go to the drive in. Old fashioned fun and really great staff. Price is reasonable and they offer a military discount at $6 per admission. You must go! Not many left these days!

What a cool way to spend an evening like in decades past! Young and old kids alike will love this...nothing like seeing a movie at a drive-in! The concession food was also very good...better than expected. The onion rings were great! Also consider that you're getting 2 movies for the price of one, so it's a bargain these days. Really...

The variety of food they have at concession is great and affordable! It's fun to see a drive-in movie compared to a regular theater. Only complaint is the vans and SUVs that park in front of smaller cars. It's hard to enjoy a movie when you can't even see half of the screen!
