We went with family to watch a movie. It was my first drive in experience as well as the kids'. We were able to see another movie as we ate at the concession stand. The food was ok for a country area. Not awesome but good enough. It is not an updated facility but that is part of what makes... More

I always enjoy going here. Food is great takes you back to childhood. The screens are great quality. The people are very nice. It's cheap and just an all out fun Tim for families or for dates. It's cheap but don't sneak food in they make money off there food and it's worth it! Never a bad experience. Love it... More

We drove here from Hilton Head The drive was very manageable and not too late gettign back. The experience was all we expected. the kids had their first exposure to drive-in theaters and they loved it, and as an adult it was great to relive the past. We went the end of July and there was no issue for gettign... More

Our extended family went to this drive in movie theater last week. It was a cool reminder of days gone by, but with some nice updates! This place has two big screens with one playing kid friendly movies and the other two first run adventure movies (Star Trek and the new Ghostbusters film. There is a playground for the kids... More

I live in Savannah and we like to go to this drive in at least a couple of times a year, when it's not too hot. You can't beat the deal or two movies for the price. And the food is good, too. Big variety for a movie concession stand. Please DON'T bring your own food. They make their living... More

We came to the 10:25 movie which started 30 min late. With 3 little kids, it's late enough. The movie was nice, restrooms were clean, I would come back.

A flashback to the olden days watching a movie from your car, food was moderate and 2 movies for $7 is great. The only suggestion I have is for everyone to please turn off their headlights for the ENTIRE movie, it's not fair to those cars parked in the front. Overall a very good experience.

Takin' it back to the way, way back. It probably seems counter-intuitive to engage with a community by sitting in your car, safely encapsulated. But the Highway 21 Drive-In Theater is a perfect cross section slice of the Beaufort Lowcountry. Couples, young families, Service members with some downtime all mingle as the sun goes down. One of the last of... More

Took the kids to see Finding Dory for their first drive-in experience, and apparently so did all of Beaufort County! They delayed the start of the movie to accommodate all the cars, but I just wish they would have had an additional register or a cash only line or credit card only line for concessions. My husband waited in line... More

Affordable to see a new release & great to sit back & relax in your car. Unique experience & our nine year old loved it! It was a fun family outing that we will definitely try again! Bring your own snacks or get traditional movie food!
