“Great fun”
Review of Skyline Drive-in

Skyline Drive-in
Ranked #6 of 17 things to do in Barstow
Attraction details
Reviewed 26 April 2014

We travelled Route 66 in 2009 and again this year. Last time, we did not have time to attend a drive-in movie, so this was on our must do list.
Great experience, nothing compares to watching a movie from your car in good old USA!

Who wouldn't love the drive in? I've never had a bad experience here. Prices for food and drinks are similar to other movie theaters, the price to get in per person is cheaper than anywhere plus you get two movies.

We are English so a Drive-in was a fabulous experience. We took some sweets, biscuits and crisps in the car, bought Cola's and settled down to watch the film. There were only three other cars there so it was touch and go whether she would show the films. Fortunately she decided she would and we tuned in the radio to a station on the ticket! The screen was enormous and the sound came out of our speakers in the car! It got a bit cold so we ran the car for a few minutes until it warmed up. It was a fun experience and I would go again if I was near a drive-in.

There aren't too many drive-in cinemas left and we were quite happy that we've seen this drive-in when we stayed for the night in Barstow. The staff was very friendly and the desert foxes ran around to maybe get some food from the visitors. It was great a great experience to watch a movie in the desert like that!
