Updated screens with digital movies- always has two shows on each side - two sides, and they will let you switch sides if the times line up. Excellent prices, decent food. Bring bug spray, you will need it if you sit outside. There are seats inside that you can sit in and still see the screen and the food area... More

Vacationing in the 1000 Islands area and spent one evening at the Bay Drive-In. Enjoyed the experience but next time I would take lawn chairs or a blanket. It was a stretch for all of us in the back to see over the heads of those in the front.

This was by far my absolute favorite thing to do when living in the 1000 islands area. We would get there early and bring the kids sleeping bags and lay them out in the back of our SUV. We would enjoy an affordable dinner, relax, and then the kids would fall asleep just in time for our movie. The weather... More

The entire visit was enjoyable- good prices for the movies and food, friendly staff, no problems finding parking. Bring bug spray. The North Country has lots of mosquitos!

The cashier at the entrance was very friendly and the price was excellent! There was plenty of space to park but the line at the popcorn stand was very long and very slow. Fun idea: we brought a blow up mattress for the bed of the truck, minus the bugs, it was a great idea :)

Two screens twice the fun. The great thing about living in northern New York is the drive-in theaters. No one wants to stay inside during the awesome summers. With two screens, you get twice the options.

This is a fun and affordable place for anyone to go. With two screens and the ability to crossover between shows, there will almost always be a great lineup of first run movies to see. One of the best parts is the price. You can catch two first run movies for less than the price of one at your typical... More

This is one of our favorite places in A-Bay! The grounds are clean, the staff is friendly and the prices are perfect. We were in such shock at how good the snack foods were and how low the prices were. Wished we could visit more often and make this our regular theater.

While on vacation in the area we went to the drive in. The screen is nice, sound quality is good and the overall feel is safe. Great value for what you get. Even the concession prices were reasonable. An added plus was the other movie goers were polite and there to enjoy the movies.
