The location is a bit of a hike but love going here. Where else can you catch 2 movies for $8.00?! We take our zero gravity chairs, citronella candles, food and beverages and make it a picnic. So much fun

The Big Mo is nostalgic and a bargain as far as today's movie prices are considered. It will be a long night because it is a double feature on the weekends. The snack bar is full of your regular movie foods and some nice additions....More

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...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...More
