A time to remember the days gone by. The Last Drive-In Picture Show brings back wonderful memories. The price is right - $10 a carload. Where else could you spend so little and enjoy yourself so much.

Talk about a step into yesteryear, we ALWAYS have the best time at the drive in! Every child should have the experience at least once in their life and several times if you live in the area! It's $10 a carload and you can bring your own food, drinks, and lawn chairs are perfect for summer nights.

The drive-in is so much fun and inexpensive entertainment for a family. You can't beat the price. We usually take a picnic dinner, back the truck in and get out the lawn chairs. They always show first run, current movies.

This is absolutely the best way to watch a movie. A HUGE screen. The comfort of your front seat, back seat, tailgate or lawn chair. The fresh night air. The price is good for both the movie and the snacks. Enjoy a good movie hot dog, or move popcorn the way it's supposed to be. This is just all around... More

I used to sneak into this drive-in when I was in high school, and though there are some changes, it's definitely worth a visit. They play new releases, and most of the time they have double features. They play a family-friendly movie first, and then a PG13-R second movie, so parents get a great experience after the kiddos fall asleep.... More
