Hubby and I love drive-in theatres--there just aren't enough of them still in operation. How surprised and excited were we to find one alive and well in Alexandria Bay?! Admission was a very reasonable $6.50 per person (believe there is discount price for children). The...More

We love this place! Two screens and great sound to the radio. Crazy low prices. $17 for a family of 4 to see 2 movies. But the 50's style, movie-themed diner in the middle is the best part. The burgers and fries are awesome and...More

Great evening out -$6.00 for 2 movies. As simple as drive-up pay the pp fee and your set to go. Find a spot and your entertainment is covered. This was a recommendation from a staff member at out hotel.

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,...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...More

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.
