Fun old fashioned time. The staff is very friendly and the movie quality on the screen was great. Concession prices are very reasonable and much better than regular movie theaters and they make the food fresh at time of order. We will certainly be back next time we are in Blue Ridge.

Turn back time!! How often do you see a drive-in these days? I love this place and always go when they are showing a movie I want to see. It is well laid out, always clean and the patrons are almost always considerate of others. That's one of the beautiful things about a small town. It is kid friendly, too,... More

The Swan Drive In is a wonderful place to visit and enjoy some great family time, a good movie or two, and have dinner while your there. It is a perfect "dinner and a movie night" place. The owners and staff are all friendly and enjoy working there. The food is very good. Much better than when I was younger... More

I'm a local who grew up here, so it's easy to forget that our ONLY local movie theater is nearly the last remainder of a '50s fad. (The local 'walk in' theater has been 'closed for the winter' for three summers now.) The Swan is a fun place to take in a movie, especially if your family hasn't experienced a... More

This is one of two drive ins in all of Georgia. Prices are extremely reasonable for both admission and at the concession stand. You can bring your own food if you like. They usually have double features on Friday and Saturday nights. Sound is through your own radio on a dedicated FM station. If you don't bring a radio you... More

We had s great time last night at the drive in! Pretty cool experience for those never attending a movie like this. The screen quality was super and the radio frequency was awesome as well. No complaints from the family! We brought in a few snacks and enjoyed the show. We stayed for one movie but the admission included a... More

Open year round. Friday and Saturday if you get to the first movie you can watch the second for free. 8$ for adults. It was in the 30's and they still played the movie. Listen to the sound through your radio or boombox. It was clean. We were given a bag for trash upon entering. We didn't try the concession... More

When we found out there was a drive-in theater where we were headed, I just had to take my 12 yr old son. Lets face it, he may never get to experience something like this again. We watched Trolls, & while we thought the actual movie was just ok the experience was perfect. The atmosphere was great. The people working... More

I have enjoyed going to the drive in since I was a child. When we are in the area, we make an effort to go the the Swan. It's fun to sit in your car or outside if it's nice and listen through your own car stereo. The place is clean and safe!
