I like going to this drive in because the people who work there are are very friendly. And going to the drive makes it less challenging if you have young ones that can’t sit through a movie like mine lol

Great little spot. 3 screens. We saw star Wars. It wasn't too busy. Maybe 5 or 6 other cars at our screen. Movies started about 7:30. Easy to find, right off Mission. 9 bucks per person. Can't beat that. Best part, no having to spend...More

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, it is clean and the screens weren't too dark.

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...More

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.

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.
