A must do experience

A great little get away and a different experience to the normal cinemas, it's like going back in time. I would recommend doing it at least once to experience it.

I know this sounds strange but we went to the Drive In without a car, as we were staying at the Atura Hotel next door- no issues for staff, very helpful and they provided us with a deck chair each. My son and I loved the retro cafe and the whole experience. It has 2 screens/2 movies playing so there... More

We had heard that the place had an upgrade and we where looking forward to trying it out, but unfortunately the amenities have just had a coat of paint and not much else. Although the restaurant has had very nice makeover the food was not very good the menu was very limited. I had smokey BBQ wings which were smothered... More

It's warming up, so it's great seeing movies at the Blacktown Drive-In again. We continue to get great customer service from the staff, and prefer to see a movie here than at the cinema. Please don't ever close!

Revamped facilities Great for dates, families and socialising. Very cheap entertainment. 1950s style cafe experience. If you feel nostalgic this place has the charm of taking you there

Another night and another fun experience. The movie, the cars and the people... all make for an interesting night out. We take our own "munchies" with us for when the film is on, but again fell for the old "diner food" trick beforehand... will learn not to one day LOL! Bad food at bad prices and VERY LITTLE VARIETY! Note... More

What a fun night- to watch a movie in the comfort of our own car. Sound now comes through the radio- which is a slight issue when the car automatically shuts off after 60mins so check out how your car works first!. We ate at the Atura Hotel next door which was fabulous and much better than the diner looked.... More

First time visit by teenagers to the drive in theatre and thoroughly enjoyed by all. They loved the theme and the setting is reminiscent of a bygone era. Excellent evening.

Nice change from seeing a movie in a traditional cinema . We saw two movies back to back, and although our legs were a little stiff later that night, we had a lot of fun. We also stayed at the Atura Hotel that night, which is next door, and this was a very good idea. Nice hotel, comfortable rooms and... More
