We loved this drive in. Loved that if you wanted to get out of your car to watch the movie under the stars you could or you could sit in your car and watch as well and listen thru the radio. Price gave us two free drinks. They sell food. I loved the old feel from the decorations of the... More

We loved our Drive-In experience. Neighbouring cars were a bit annoying with their headlights and whatnot, but overall it was a great time. Staff walk around during the movie and approach those who have their headlights on, so it's nice that moviegoers don't have to deal with it themselves. Mosquitoes are rampant but if you keep your windows up, you'll... More

The Brackley Drive In is our favourite place to see movies in the summer. The drive in has a 60's feel to it with old time rock n' roll playing over the radio, vintage commercials playing in the big screen and the stage set up below the main screen. The canteen serves a wide variety of food from the usual... More

My husband and I took out 2 boys here while visiting PEI for a week and we loved it!! We drove in parked and listened to old 50's music while we waited for the minions movie to play!! The cost was great considering you were able to watch 2 movies it's a def thing to do while visiting the Island!!

Perfect except for Mosquitos. Be prepared with hats and coverings. Good early show for families begins at 8:30. Cash only at the gate a bit of a surprise. Still, a vintage drive in a treasure and a treat. Check it out. Fun evening take-in if camping in the area.

This spot was a great find! Took out 8y old to see Mission Impossible #5 and had a blast. Drinks are included in $10 ticket ($7 for kids I think), and you can pack your own treats or buy there. TAKE bug spray. I even saw some with mosquito netting to place in care windows - SMART! We started off... More

We had a wonderful time at the drive in. The retro music and front 'stage' was a really nice touch. We brought blankets and took advantage of some of the beach chairs and watched the first movie outside. They make the best grape cotton candy.

I love drive-ins and with the one back home getting closed down this was a welcomed sight. Food was reasonably priced, great movie combo and it was awesome that a free drink came with an admission. I love the old tunes, the classic intermission and the atmosphere. Will definitely be back!!

I found it pricey ($33) compared to the drive-in in Cape Breton ($14/car), but it makes for a fun, family night out, and I supposed you'd be hard pressed to find something else to do for such little money. The concession food was reasonably priced, as well.
