If you've never been to a Drive-In Movie, then this is a must! There aren't many remaining in the US and you should swing by this wonderful slice of nostalgia and catch a Double-Feature for ONLY $9! That's a two for one deal and they pair up the movies nicely in the same genres. There are 3 Screenings, which leaves... More

I heard about the big MO about 12 years ago and said many times that we should go. Kids were small, movies weren't right, etc. Kids are finally old enough to watch most anything and I happened to remember this fall. Glad I did. I may never go back to a regular theater again. Kids loved it and I prefer... More

If you want to do something different, something old and yet new then change your flow and head to the Big Mo! I hadn't been to a drive in since college days so this was almost a bucket list type focus. Great experience and worth the tri,p especially since they offered a double feature on my screen!

You can't have more fun for less money! Bring your own food or buy from the concession stand. 3 screens with 2 main stream movies on each. (No you can't swap fields between movies, but you shouldn't want to!) Have fun with the family or snuggle with your date. Arrive early as new releases sale out fast. And bring cash.... More

Arrive early! Best, most fun, and most relaxed way to see a movie. You can bring your pet, a picnic, and games. Come early when they first open to really get in some quality time. Also the concession makes a special dessert they sell between movies. You get two NEW movies for $8 a head- can't beat the price. Be... More

This is a great way to see a movie, just like back in the day where you drive in. If you are going make sure you show up early befor they open so you can get a good spot. The line does start to back up quickly before they open. Good news is they have multiple theaters as well so... More

Other reviewers have well captured all the superlatives of a Big Mo movie date. We had so much fun, smiled the whole night and can't wait to return (i.e. new Jason Bourne in a couple weeks) So just a couple of hints: 1) Read the advice on the website, it covers most of the stuff to make your trip the...

Go to a drive in movie was one of the things on my bucket list. I am so very glad to have checked that one off. We took the kids here over the fourth of July weekend. It was a bit of a drive but it was worth it. Make sure to take cash with you. Tickets are cash only.... More

This place is the real deal! Great price for current movies, 2 movies for $8 per adult $4 for kids. Sound quality is good if you have a good stereo! Picture quality is good. We will be frequent visitors!
