This place is really good to go with your loved ones, for couples is nice cuz you get to just enjoy a movie while chilling, if its cols weather you can get cozy lol. Is also great for families with young kids, sometimes children dont do to well at the theaters specially if they are little, so here they can totally enjoy a movie from the comfy of their car. Price is good only $7 per person. Kids i think is less, They also also have the best nachos and horchata as well as other goodies to munch... love it,!

Not as nice as the Van Buren Drive Inn, but still fun! Drive Inns are a dying breed, I highly recommend you take in a movie at a Drive Inn before they are all gone!

We took all four kids to see a movie for under $20 bucks, picked up snacks ahead of time and arrived early enough to get a prime spot in the center by the snack bar. We had no problems with the sound, although we lost the picture midway through, it was fixed within minutes and backtracked so we didn't miss anything. Since we have little ones we only stayed for the first movie. The snack bar was clean, a little pricey but they give large portions. Went on a Sunday night, I hear Fridays and Saturdays are busy. Definitely going back.

As a very local resident of 60 years, I was very sorry to see the weekday and weekend swap meet crowd come into the neighborhood. The local streets are frequently congested with entire families, kids in tow, dashing across the street through traffic, tamale carts here and there, and lines of vehicles waiting in lines blocks long to push whatever wares they possess. I guess the drive-in survives on this because the 2nd rate movies shown there, the rundown snack-bar, the beer bottles left behind, and bad sound system really doesn't get it. It was a nice family place at one time I enjoyed as a youngster, but even the fresh coat of paint doesn't hide the social issues it has brought to our neighborhood.

use for swap meet on weekends nothing much else, the food is snack bar faire. enuf said. As for the movies well lets us just say that if you people to hang with it all good but if you want to see a movie then just skip this one.
