This is one of the best attractions in the area and a must for anyone in the area. We loaded a couple of chairs from the house (glider chair and office chair) onto the back of our Chevy Avalanche, packed up a cooler of snacks, brought blankets and hoodies, and listened to the movies on our iPods. My wife and... More

The best thing in Barstow, really friendly owner/ticket man. Really clear audio via car radio. Plenty of room, relaxed cheap and an experience very hard to find. Two films for $ 8 an absolute bargain, go to make sure this continues.

We drove from post to see the latest Avengers film. It cost $8 per adult, but you are getting a double feature if you can stay up that late. Plus you can bring all you own goodies and 'camp out' in the back of you vehicle. It was fun!

For overseas visitors to the States the Drive In Movie is something that must be done. We are living not to far away so thought a visit is a must do. Doors opened at 7 for a 7.30 pm start and we were given a very warm welcome as we explained this was our first visit to a drive in.... More

It would appear the drive in have little option in the matter but though this be no issue if you are a local for other visitors wanting to experience... More

Tonight I visited an open air,drive-in movie theater for the first time in my life. It was fun to watch a new movie under the sky with the movie playing on a big screen and the FM radio having the sound. The movie was so-so but the experience was fun. This place only accepts cash but the fees and the... More
