“Classic, nostalgic, family fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2014

WIth so few drive-ins remaining today, Beaufort is very fortunate to have this theater in its arsenal. With extremely reasonable ticket prices and wallet saving concession prices, the Highway 21 Drive-In really offers a family friendly environment to enjoy a movie.

I only wish they had deep-fried Oreos...

“A trip to the museum of Americana.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2014

We love this place. I'm not sure how many drive-in theaters remain in America, but I'm glad this is one of them. The movies played here are the most recent releases and the popcorn/hot dogs/burgers bring you back to a simpler time. It's great to sit in the car, splay out and not freeze to death. I'm surprised drive-in cinemas are an endangered species. It's a much better way to enjoy a night at the movies.

“Love this place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 March 2014

The Highway 21 Drive-In is a blast from the past. We love drive-ins (Atlanta has a great one -- Starlight Six), and Highway 21 is a great one. It's fairly affordable, the concessions are actually good (our burger and fries were surprisingly tasty) and the picture and sound are good. If you're in the area, stop by and catch a flick!

“Great place to hang out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2014

Highway 21 Drive-In Theater is a great place for a family night out or a date night. I have never been to a drive-in until moving to Beaufort. I love how they are able to show new releases at a fraction of what regular theaters charge. The grounds are clean, working restrooms, a fully stocked snack bar (with tons of hot foods), playground for the kids. I enjoy it every time I go! You must grab a funnel cake, they are to die for!

“nostalgic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 February 2014

This place is amazing reminds me so much of my childhood. It really is a shame there are not more drive - ins anymore. The only bad thing about this place is the staff at concessions are not very friendly.
