I love bringing my kids here. The playground is fun, the concession stand has good food, and (if you can manage to go on a weeknight) the place has just a few cars. It's nice to not fight over your spot. We enjoy packing up the blankets and pillows and watching a movie together.

For years, we've wanted to go to the drive-in theatre when we visited our favorite B&B in Stephens City. This trip, we took the time to do it and we weren't disappointed. The staff is friendly and the food is surprisingly good.

This was our first drive-in experience, and we had a great time! We read that the line started early for the 9 PM show, so we arrived about 5:45 PM and were near the front getting in. We were able to get a prime parking spot in the middle of the third row and had a great view! We sat outside in lawn chairs with a portable radio for most of the night and enjoyed the perfect weather and stars above our heads. The atmosphere is relaxed and family friendly - there is a little field and playground for the children before the movie. The concession stand is decently priced, and you can stay for both movies for only $8/person. This was a fun, reasonably priced date night and we would definitely go back!

I had never been to a drive in before so this was great!! $8 per person and you can stay for two movies, plus they are dog friendly!! The concessions offer a variety of items and are not that expensive! Cannot wait to go back again!!

If you like drive ins, then you will really like this one. It is family run. The food is good and they have other things going on when you are waiting for the movie to start. Get ther early to get the good spots.
