Great value for the money...two shows for $7.50/person! Get in close to when the gates open, usually 8pm, for primo parking. Bring a soccer ball, football, or baseball & gloves to entertain the kids before the movie starts. Great retro experience for all to enjoy.

Great way to spend a summer evening! 2 movies for the price of less than one at a "regular" theater. For $7.50 you get a double feature on screen 1 or 2 or you can mix and match one on each screen. Movies are listened...More

Good place for a drive in movie and cheap. Watched the movies and enjoyed a night with some friends. It was just what you would expect, nothing too special, but an enjoyable place for a movie with a friendly staff.

Just went to the drive-in theater at night to watch Minions. Cool experience. First time my wife and I and our children had ever been to a drive-in theater. Only problem is that since we were watching the later showing, the concession building closed only...More
