The bomb diggity of Drive In Theater

I love it. No comparison. It's like stepping back in time. The old swingset, the climbing rocks. The family that owns it....beautiful and loving.

This is a great place to take the family or a special someone for date night. Come before the movie to get a great spot. Then there is a playground for the kids and lots of open grassy areas to toss footballs or frisbees. One of my favorite things is you can take your pets. It is very inexpensive and... More

My family and I love this drivein. Always clean from the bathroom to the car lots. Staff is family oriented and always helpful. Make sure you come hungry and get dinner at the snack bar, the pork bbq, chicken fingers and fries are our favorites.

Love this 50 yrs plus old drive in. They open around memorial day. Usually show 2 movies each night, 3 movies on holiday weekends. First movie is typically a family movue, second movie normally appeals to a more mature audience. Current box office movies played. There is a nice snack bar with burgers, fries, soda, and popcorn. Camping style bathrooms,... More

This was my very first time at a drive in movie theater and I'm glad I went here. Very friendly people, great views of the screen.. Lots of people take lawn chairs and tailgate, we stayed in the car and rented a radio for $2 so I didn't run down the battery in my car. Nice concession stand, they play... More

One of the las Movie Drive In Theaters. It has a playground for "little Ones" and an open area for the "bigger Ones" to stretch their legs before and in between movies. Memorial- and Labor-Day weekends you usually can watch 3 movies and 2 on the other weekends. Their is a concession stand and if that is not enough on... More

It's great to have the Drive-In available as an alternative to in-theater movies - especially for families. This Drive-In has first-run movies, the screen is in good shape, and there is a decent concession stand. There are swings and a grassy area near the front screen where kids can play while you wait fro dusk to fall. The only drawback,... More

Remember to reserve your space ahead of time online. Super summer fun, come early and tailgate or buy food from the concession. The bathrooms can get a little dirty by the end of the night, so wear sneakers and skip the flip flops.

All over the area we are losing the past. Drive ins are an american icon. They are great reminders of our childhood. The fun way to see a movie with your kids. Nothing like watching a movie with the top down on a cool summer night.
