bring your own food and lawn chairs. its fun to get there early and see how everyone is set up. some people go all out with tablecloths and fancy things. lots of families. we parked our car then went over to Schnucks next door to get ice and supplies. bathrooms at Drive-In could use some work, but a great place...

Being one of the last of its kind, this drive-in is fantastic!! In addition to being a fun experience, the price is still less expensive than taking the family to a traditional movie theater. What's even better, you can bring your own food and beverages. I often see families with coolers and we typically bring a Little Ceasars pizza and... More

This place has been showing movies since I have been young. I remember the tram and train. It would be neat to revamp all that so kids today can relive the great times of the whole Skyview Drive in experience. This is a great way for a family to spend quality time. I hope it never closes!

Considering this drive-in is the only one in the area it is a great experience for kids. For those of us who grew up going to this drive-in it is very disappointing that it has deteriorated so much. Port-a potties were not clean, the playground had many large holes in it, play equipment paint was worn off, some parts of... More

The Bloomer family has owned this drive-in for over 50 years. Steve takes great pride in its heritage. Being one of the few drive-in theatres left in the country it is very nostalgic to stop by on a summer evening to watch a couple of movies.

One of the few drive-in theaters left. Definitely family friendly. Sound is done thru your car radio. Movies for families. Two screens. People will tail-gate before the movie. Right next door to a grocery store - park your car and go get snacks and drinks (or vice-versa). Easy to get to from US 15 off of I 255.

We love going to the drive-in. Great family movie night place. Staff is friendly and they are great when we take our Cub Scout pack there. They treat us to a tour of the projection room and let one of the scouts start the movie for the evening. Would highly recommend.

We enjoy going to the drive-in movies each summer. It costs $10 for an adult and you get up 2 kids free. For our family of 5, it is an expensive way of seeing a first run movie. The kids like it. The facilities are dated, and it can get overcrowded quickly so I recommend going early.

Great summer fun if all movie goers are courteous of others! Last night someone started their car up and kept it running during the whole 2nd movie! Needless to say the family sitting outside in the parking spot directly behind them began choking on the fumes! Others close could not hear the movie either! Next time I will try and... More
