“It's Throwback Thursday every Night!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2014

It is so great to have a Drive-In Theater in our backyard like the Big Sky. They show first rate movies at a very fair price. Most importantly, the concession stand will not gouge you, like at movie theaters. The food is very good and priced fairly. Bring your sweetheart or your entire family. There is fun to be had by all. You will need an FM radio, since there are no longer speakers to hang on your window. For those folks with automatic headlights, please learn how to turn off your headlights while your engine is running. That courtesy is similar to turning off your cell phones while inside a movie theater. Headlights shining on the big drive-in movie screen are a real bummer. This is an awesome place to visit!

This is the first time I have ever been to a drive in cinema and I now wish there where more of them around the world the only problems I can see is summer months the days are longer so shows cannot start early also when the weather is bad

Nice to have a drive in theatre being that they are so rare now! Great value and fun to visit! Dinner and two movies all in the comfort of your own vehicle!

“Little Slice of Americana”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed the drive in. We took lawn chairs and cooler to have a tail gate party. The snack bar is straight out of the 1950's. Very nostalgic.

“Fun for the family”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

Big Sky has 3 theatre screens, and it shows first-run movies. We love taking our children (both under age 5) both because the prices are good, and they can squirm all over the car while the movie plays (big advantage over a traditional theatre).
