Who wouldn't want to visit a drive-in theater nestled among the pines on a summer evening? The Star-Lite Drive-In has two screens which, for one ticket, show THREE films! The one downside is that in the summertime, the first showing starts at night, which means you'll be out into the wee hours if you can make it to the third... More

This place is a class act! It feels retro right from the turn into the drive, but at the ticket booth you can use a credit card! I get a kick out of watching the retro animated advertisements for the snack bar. For retro ticket prices: at the beginning and end of the season, they have carload specials instead of... More

I grew up with drive in theatres. There fewer and farther between as the years go by. Starlite Drive-In is clean, well lit twin theatre. They also have radio signal sound, so you can listen through your car stereo system.

I've now been to 7 different drive-in theaters. There aren't many open anymore but we make it a point to try and see as many as are still around. This is one of the better ones. The grounds are extremely well maintained. The picture is nice, the people are nice. The food is all pre-made, including the popcorn. Just kept... More

We love Starlite Drive-In and have visited many times. The movies match other theaters and these are not older released movies. Many times Starlite has movies for opening weekend. They often have $12 carload specials almost always three movies but we can only last one or two. We bring our truck and back into the parking spot and watch from... More

Wow, a blast from the past that was awesome! Only $13 for a car load, sound quality if you use radio channel was great. Absolutely loved the whole experience! Two screens with 3 movies for $13? (Including one screen for kids movies) Yes please!

This is not only a great value and time for couples, families and friends. The food is great for a drive in and the prices are great. Movies are usually great picks and pairings. This is a must when they are open.
