“beautiful desert sky”

Smith's Ranch Drive-In
Attraction details
Reviewed 29 July 2009

The sky is so beautiful in the desert as we watch movies from chairs outside our vehicle we often see shooting stars! The staff is wonderful and the prices are great. The drive in is a good way to make lasting family memories!

While visiting our USMC son in California we treated ourselves to a visit to Smith's Ranch Drive In at Twenty-Nine Palms CA. It was a fantastic evening. We live in Louisiana so we lost our drive in YEARS ago - from lack of use AND over-bearing mosquitos. How refreshing to enjoy a movie at a drive-in without having to anchor yourself down to avoid being carried off by the stinging winged beasts! It was a bit strange though to not have the old timey mosquito pics smoking on the window rim. We settled in with HUGE cokes in old time real plastic collectors cups - really large buckets or popcorn, and chocolate bars - (we really did come to see the movie - not just to eat!). Believe it or not, the prices of the goodies seemed like a flash-back to the 60's as well - amazingly low prices! The three of us, all adults, settled in and laughed our way through the animated show "Surf's Up" - Great movie - go see it for the fun and for the underlying lesson. If you find yourself in the area - pay Smith's Ranch Drive In a visit - I PROMISE you will NOT regret it!
