Growing up Drive-In movie were one of our favorite things to do. Since we have not got one anywhere close to us we decided to make it an event on our last vacation. It was great. The typical snack bar etc. However we did miss the old dancing hot dog thing on the screen during intermission. But really enjoyed the... More

We wanted to do something relaxing after a long day of traveling into Arizona. Since we both love movies and drive-ins are scarce in Houston, TX we knew we wanted to check this out. We enjoyed this place so much! Plenty of screens and movie options (all current). Always a double feature for a fantastic price. There is a concession... More

Our first time at a drive in! We got there early to get a good spot. Only bad thing - it was so HOT while we waited for the movie. We turned the car off to save gas and energy, but it was over 100 degrees out. Would be nice if there was wifi or movie trivia/previews on prior to... More

I totally love this place. Years ago, when my son and my nephew were under ten we would take them to this theatre and have sooo much fun. This trip my mother, sister and I went on a Saturday evening and it was so great and heartwarming. We saw a comedy and ate food that we brought in with us.... More

I have to admit, I am a little spoiled as far as drive-in theaters are concerned. I spent many a summer at my grandparent's place in northern Indiana next to an awesome little drive in that really set the bar high. Grass berms to angle your car upwards, all working window speakers, dark skies because it is out in the... More

I work a lot so when I can my wife & I try to do the most together as a family. This time we decided on a movie night at the local drive-in at Glendale 9 Drive-In. The place looks old but has that vintage look from the old days. For a Friday night it wasn't too crowded, the price... More

Oh my. Well, if you want to do something interesting and new for a night, this is always a good idea. Since there aren't too many drive-in theaters these days, why not? I've been here a few times. I live locally. I went here with the kids once and with some adults twice before. All the times I have been... More
