Enjoy the nostalgia of this throw back. Use the wired speaker and enjoy the show on a true big screen. Bring lawn chairs to watch the movie from outside your car. Kids love it!

Always GREAT double features! First movie starts at dusk. Intermission allows time for restroom and/or getting a food treat at the consession stand. Decent food, even has hot chocolate for those chilly summer nights. Bring a little "boom box" to listen to movie in stereo...More

Hadn't been here in more than 20 years. It's as if I drove into a time machine. The food choices were as expected. The movie choices for the drive in were perfect summer fare.

Showing started at 7.50pm, but we arrived half an hour early to get a good view, with a working speaker - worth doing this. We ate at the concession stand, which has standard cinema fare, but you can bring in your own snacks. Bring cash...More

This is our second trip here with the kids and we love it. Cheap considering you get admission to two films. They only accept cash which is only slightly inconvenient but there is an ATM available. Snacks and restrooms available. They open their doors at...More

We go early because it's just part of the fun. We are in line 20 minutes before the gate opens, but people trickle in right up to show time.. You will get in even if you go late, but tailgating is fun.
Where is the list of "now showing"?
