We come to Fripp Island from Atlanta at least once a year and always try to stop here for a movie. It's hard to believe that someone can keep an old fashioned drive in movie theater going these days. Good cheap ticket prices, a recent...More

Wow what a old fashioned family fun night. Does it get any better than sitting under the stars to see a double feature with your family of five for less than $30? My kids thought it was the neatest thing ever.

This place is awesome! It's everything that I remembered from 35 years ago. You get to sit in your car or the picnic area and watch two movies. They have a great concession stand to get all sorts of good food. You can buy anything...More

Nice way to spend our anniversary evening and reminiscing. Only issue in the south is having to turn on the car AC and bugs! If the break had not been so long between the 2 movies, we would have enjoyed both movies.

It is treat for the kids (and their parents) to experience a disappearing part of Americana. Well run theatre.

They do state "No outside food". I don't see where a box of candy or something would be against the rules, but don't bring a picnic and set it up outside your car. They make their profits on the concession stand, so if... More

I see people recommend to arrive "early". But what is "early"? For a movie's opening weekend, should we be getting there when they open at 6:30? Or would an hour before hand (7:45) be fine?

On a busy night, I think they would prefer you arrive early enough as to not interrupt the guests by driving around with your head lights on as the movie/previews are playing. If it's busy, it might be tough to find that... More

Is it dog friendly?

Response from Donna S | Reviewed this property |
There are no signs stating no dogs, and I have seen people with your pets. I'm sure they want them on leashes and for owners to pick up after them since children play on the property before the movies.
