This is a great venue for watching a movie at night or shopping during the day! There is a swap-meet held here every weekend and on Wednesdays. Great things are waiting for you to find!

The drive-in is still so much fun! I love taking my son and his friends. We have a blast. The Mexican food there is so good too. Seriously love it. I highly recommend grabbing some blankets and checking it out!

They have raised the entry fee for adults again! It is still a great deal for 2 movies but maybe spruce the place up a bit if you are raking in more dollars?

there are very few places where you can take the family out and not spend a fortune. They're also very few drive in movie theaters left so if you have the opportunity to go to one, you should. What I would suggest is that you...More

We went on a weekend, got there 1/2 hour before the show and the line was so long to get in we missed the 1st few minutes. Give yourself 45min or more to get a better spot.
