I loved it from A to Z ! The prices are cheaper than an actual theater and the experience is WAY better. You're in your own car, you can bring whatever you want, no one is going to disturb you as you are watching the movie from your car with your radio. There is no way I am going back... More

Never been to a Swap Shop /Flea market location so most of what I know ahead of time comes from reading Trip Advisors comments. At best they were 50% bad to worthless and 50% remembering old times or speaking about bargains of poor quality merchandise ( here I am being very kind ). What we saw at best was very... More

However, on Thursday, the outdoor lot was jammed with rows and rows of merchants Typical flea market stuff --- new and used items -- some good bargains... More

Considering this is suppose to be one of the biggest flea markets and drive in, there was not much going on. Was there several years ago and it was bustling and there were 14 movies going on. Now there were a few vendors selling the same thing and only a handful of movies. Waste of time.

We only visited the flea market section which is very primitive with goods spread out on a blankets on the hot asphalt in the full sun. Much of the wares offered looked like they were salvaged from curbside garbage. There were several booths which offered basic household goods such as mops, brooms, and toilet paper.

Came here to browse and maybe find a bargain. What we found is a lot of junk and some very sketchy people selling junk and porn videos. If they took the junk and porn peddlers out, it might be an ok place to go to.
