Families and friends have been making memories at our drive-in movie theatre ever since we built and opened in 2003. We show new double features year-round. For the full drive-in experience, visit our 50's Cafe to grab Rockin' Eats & Tasty Treats. Arrive 30 to 60 minutes early to skip the lines and enjoy the freedom! *Voted best place to watch a sunset. (Lubbock Avalanche-Journal 2012, 2014) *Voted best family entertainment. (Lubbock Avalanche-Journal 2007) *Trip Advisor ranked #1 drive-in theatre in Texas, #3 drive-in theatre in U.S.A. (2014)

We live to do this! It's a family favorite! We pick our screen and load a ton of chairs, blankets, and pillows, and a cooler of food. The kids love to play on the playground at intermission. The bathrooms are often very dirty.

Drive-Ins... remember them? I didn't think they still existed the way I remembered them. Well, they do in west Texas. We took the kids for a Saturday night double feature and ate dinner at the cafe. Great comfort food, huge candy bars and lots of...More

Stars & Stripes Drive-in Theatre is my favorite place to watch a movie. I enjoy being able to watch from the comfort of my vehicle, with friends, family, and even my dog. The 50s themed cafe is also great. It is so nice to order...More

Most drive-ins closed down many years ago, but this one just opened up not too long ago. This is a fun cheap way to see movies. The only "bad" thing is that some of the food items can be greasy and a little pricy, but...More

Love this place! It's definitely a throw back in time and those of us who grew up with drive-ins will especially love it. Having said that, this place is clearly set up for families with plenty of playground equipment for the youngsters. It's really a...More
