Exactly what you want in a drive-in

Except the prices are a little steep. Kids are only $1 though. Also, they don't have the raised parking spaces (I think to make it better for their weekend swap meets.) Otherwise... read more

2 movies for $9/person, I mean common, that's super reasonable. Saturday night, it was 9.35 and we headed to Rubidoux wanting to see the 9.55 movie. It was September, no line, it took only 5 minutes to pay and park the car. I have a van and my friends had another car, we could easily park next to each other.... More

I hadn't been to a drive-in in so long I couldn't remember. I learned about this one and started going since it is close to me. They have three screens. All seem in fine shape to me. The sound comes through your radio, so a radio is a must. The snack bar is average I would say. I have been... More

2 adults two kids under 10 for 20 bucks and you get TWO movies. Great value. Sound is as good as your car speakers and they don't give you grief for putting out lawn chairs. Snacks are cheap but you can bring your own food as well.

Drive in is cool and offers showing for all new movies. Must get there early though. Cheap pricing and a variety of food for good prices at the snack bar.

Didn't even know that drive in movies still existed, so we were delighted to find this one. It's easy to find in Riverside and well signposted. Take your own food and drink. For the full experience also take cushions and park facing away from the screen and sit on your tailgate. Good value at less than ten bucks per person... More

This is a greeeat old style theatre with several screens. We always bring snacks,pizza and popcorn.The posted signs say no chairs but we like to put an airbed in a pick up and watch with pillows under the stars. Its NEVER crowded so you always get the best seat in the house!

Used to love those drive-in theatres growing up and this is the perfect spot to go back to the old days. Very affordable price as well. Loved the food - authentic Mexican food.

This is the original type of drive in. Nothing fancy. No upgrades, just flat areas to park or sit outside the car

Went with my husband to watch line survivor. First time at a drive-in. Didn't know what to expect. Great value. Only $8 per adult and if you bring children they're only $1! Didn't have to get dressed up. Brought our own snacks and relaxed as we watched movie. They do have a concession stand and restrooms available. Great experience! Can't... More
