“One of the last American Classic Experiences”

Not sure how many drive in theaters exist in the world but this is the only one I know of. Make sure you take your girl or your kids here for an experience they will fondly remember.

“Good old family fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 November 2012

Great place to take family or your best girl. There are so few drive in movie theaters any more and it is a shame. You can take the family and spend some quality time. Perfect for a young family with baby because the crying will not bother the next car over!

How can you not enjoy this place, it's one of the only one around in who knows how many radius. It's just good old family fun!!!

My oldest sometimes does't even care what is showing she just goes for the Greatest homemade Pizza but of corese it was all I ate when I was pregnant with her ha ha ha what coincidence. The faimly that ownes it are the greatest!

“A family tradition”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2012

Every summer for many years now my family had made multiple visits to the drive-in in Milton-Freewater. It's a family run operation, and it's a fun way to watch a movie wrapped up in a blanket in your most comfortable folding chair under the stars. They always show a double feature. Though they charge by the person (not by the car), the rate is still much better than the typical multiplex -- especially if you stay for both films. The lot is nothing fancy, but the atmosphere is always fun with children running around and everyone having a good time. If you come on a Friday night, be sure to get there early for a good parking spot up front. The theater is open Friday through Wednesday during the summer (closed Thursday) and in the spring and fall they are open Friday through Sunday when the weather allows.

“It's a Drive-IN”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 January 2012

So this is your average drive-in. NOt terrible; not great.
I find the screen kind of dim and hard to see; especially when the first show starts.
Positives are that they always have 2 shows.
