We enjoy the evening by going to the drive in movies. A big bonus is the multiple screens showing double features. Great snack bar with many choices. Always showing great films. A must to experience!

Great place to go in the summer for family fun and good movies. Everything one would hope for from the greasy yet delicious food to the outdoor playground. Highly recommend if you're in the neighborhood!

Sunset is located in Colchester VT and close to the water so unfortunately in late summer it can be mosiquito-ville. There are ways to combat some of them and the best invention I've scene is window screen material over the car windows. Genious! With that...More

I have gone to this dive in every year for decades. The prices are still good, they have a variety of movies throughout the summer. I hope the drive ins never die.

Free to get in to the drive in when you stay next door at the Starlight. Lots of movies available. Looks like there's a choice of three different sets of movies

We loved this place so much we went back the next night. It's so rare to find a drive in theatre these days, and this one is huge. It has 4 screens. We went on weeknights, so I can't speak to how crowded it gets...More

I highly recommend a trip here, it's a great value for the money. I like that you can go over the another movie if you don't like the one you're watching. They've got a mini-golf course and playground for the kids when they get bored....More
