“Best place to watch new movies!”
Reviewed 5 June 2014 via mobile

I love the silver moon. We've been going there over ten years now and it's always been a great experience. There's nothing better than enjoying a movie at a drive in. Low admission fees, great food, and an awesome time. Love it!!

Thank Sarah B

“Worth the drive!”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

This is definitely worth the drive! We are about an hour away, and try to get there several times a year. It's a great bargain for the tickets ($4 or $5 per person for 2 movies!) and the concessions are reasonable too. In the cooler months, don't forget some blankets. When the warm weather moves in, don't forget the mosquito repellant! We bring our camp chairs and sit behind the car with the stereo on. It's great family fun!

“Lucky we have one in town!”
Reviewed 16 May 2014

From what I know there are very few Drive-Ins left in the States so when we found out we had one here in Lakeland we had to try it. That was like five years ago and we're still regulars. Where else can you watch two brand new movies for less than the price of one at your local mall theater. $5 each for two movies and if you go early in the week it's buy one get one free with the local Lakeland coupon (found on small coupon booklet you can find even on local gas stations). They use digital projectors so the movie quality is really good. Audio through your car stereo but they do still have a few rows in the back with the old fashion window mount speakers. Nice snack bar. Just remember to bring mosquito repellent just in case.

“It is an experience”
Reviewed 15 May 2014

My wife, dog and I went to see a double feature last Saturday. The place was packed, I would suggest getting there early on a weekend night to get a good spot. This is an old drive-in that has been updated some but retains most of it's "rustic charm". You are paying $5 per person and $1 for kids to get in so realize you aren't at the local cineplex. That said it is a great family fun night out on the cheap. You can bring in your own food and drink. They do have some decent pizza at a cheap price. They have a great dog walking area and the staff is very friendly. The speakers in the areas where they have them work ok but just tune in your radio and you are all set.

Yes, you can see some lines in the "screen" and the trains going by during the show can disrupt things sometimes but that is all part of the experience. A fun place at a good family friendly price. I wish we had one in Orlando.

“Great value!!!”
Reviewed 14 May 2014 via mobile

Love this place! Great value for the money. You can't beat it. It is a little harder to enjoy in the summer because of the heat and Mosquitos but as long as you keep your windows rolled up in the air on you'll be fine.
