I have not been to a drive-in theater in over 35 years and it lived up to the expectation. This is a locally owned business, not run by a huge corporation. The staff is super friendly. The prices are more than reasonable. It was a great time all around.

Love this place! It's awesome! I'm a gal from the '60s, so it was a blast from the past! But beware, people were lined up to get in at 5pm and the movie didn't start until 8:30! But, there was plenty of room for those who arrived at 8pm. It was like everyone having a family reunion - picnic on... More

We feel like we are transported to a nostalgic age here, and relax so quickly. We love it here. The little snack shack is great. The popcorn is good, crunchy and salty. You can get hotdogs, fries, cotton candy, ice cream, and neat fried mac n cheese bites. Some of the speakers don't work well, but you can tune in... More

This drive-in is "old school". It reminds you of the movie Grease or some 1950's attraction. The staff is nice, and they offer great burgers, dogs and fries to go with the movie at very good prices. We will always have a fondness for this place.

I love going to Starlite Drive In to the movies. The atmosphere takes me back to my high school days. It is romantic to go there. Hot dogs are good, popcorn tastes like it should!

One of the last few drive-in theaters left and how fortunate that I have it in my own back yard. I have been going to see movies here my whole life. In fact, I still remember my parents taking me and my twin brother there to see our very first movie when we were 5. In high school there was... More

With a young son, he loves nothing more than a night at the drive in with a few friends. It's better than the theatre, because the kids are in your car, so they won't bother anyone else if they get chatty or fidget. You can also take a blanket and sit outside your car. The folks at the theatre are... More

So many reasons to love Starlite. It's a trip back to the days when the drive-in movie was THE place to be. But even in the off season, you'll find community events held here. Definitely budget-friendly, too.
