By far my favorite place to watch movies in the theaters. Plus, for half of the cost of one movie in a normal theater, you get to see two new movies here in one night. Great deal. The snack/food bar gives you everything you need and more. The food is good and the staff are friendly. The old time drive-inn vibe is a great experience as well. The sound plays through your car speakers and you can't hear your peers because you are in your car. Definitely a strong recommendation for a family outing, date night, and just to watch the latest movies.

I would give this place 10 stars if I could. Amazing family experience. Cheap tickets to see 2 movies. Kids love it. For those not familiar, here's the rundown: Pay per person at the gate. Park wherever you want that has a good view. Put your BACK tires on the top of the little hills (so it angles the back of your car up towards the screen). Tune your radio to the radio station that has the movie sound (a little info pamphlet given to you at the gate tells you the station). Relax, and enjoy! Concession prices are not bad at all. In between the 1st and 2nd movies there's time to leave if you need to for kid bedtimes. We always leave after the first. If your car battery were to die from leaving the battery on, just pop your hood at the end of the movie and they have a golf cart that will come around and give you a jump. Seriously, go here!

So many great memories here in the few years we've been here! We don't go often enough, that's for sure. But it's hard to beat the deal. Sure it has its quirks, but if you can see the big picture (haha, it's late, sorry) it may be a movie renaissance in your life. This place is undoubtedly well suited to families. There's an area in front of the big screen for children to play, soccer/football or whatever they like, and it's brilliant because obviously that's right in front of everyone so it's easy to keep an eye on them. Lots of concessions if you get the inkling, but you can bring your own food even though it's against the rules. Just don't have it in the open when you get your ticket at the entrance. Oh come on, you gonna bash me over bringing a bag of pretzels? Maybe a whole preplanned car picnic. But honestly i do recommend their food inside, it's pretty good and there are a lot of choices! I just love the whole concept of driving in anyway, always wanted to do it and no that I'm old i never imagined I'd live near one. But the privacy of your own car, a very good quality picture, better than I imagined, and the audio is up to you, but I have a system so it's great sound. Tune in to their station and it's rather crisp and high fidelity, enjoy. You place your car on the hump to get a good view and make sure to keep your car off, they are a bit gestapo about a running engine, but in the summer when it's really hot, a lot of people will keep their cars on for a/c and even then no bright flashlights come shining in your car. But we have been warned before (only one time) and it can get quite uncomfortable. It's not a big deal normally, but with a baby, the heat can be an issue. Not to mention your battery will possibly die if you leave your system's fan and audio on. But they do have a jumper truck that comes around after if you need a jump. Always a really good, comfortable seat though! And yes their are good bathrooms there. Can't wait for next visit!

All of my experiences here have been great and the staff are exceptional, especially Alex! He waited for about an hour and a half with us when we were locked out of our car after the last show of the night. Thanks Alex!

The nostalgia is great! $14 for two adults for a double feature, how can you go wrong with that!? Be sure to get there early, normally pretty packed as soon as the doors open. Don't be rude on how you park and try to squeeze into the smallest spot possible because you got there late either.

The prices are so great and cheap, large popcorn at a regular movie theatre is almost 11$ and there it's 8$. And the chicken strips with fries are so good they give so many fries for a low price! The hotdog is bombbb and so cheap! Plus 2 movies for a low price, what more could you ask for? Highly recommend!

Enjoyed watching a double feature for the price of half a standard movie ticket. Enjoy the movie from the comfort of your own vehicle.
