Good times

Movie started 30 minutes late. Great feel to this place though where it really does have the old skool feel about it.

Good food! I wanted the pot roast but they didn't carry it on the menu anymore. The staff was nice and helpful with accommodations for my husband in his wheelchair on the inside,the sidewalk/patio outside is terrible for wheelchairs.

The theater has been in continuous operation since the 1950s. Its pretty cool to behold. Sunday Double Feature: watched Suicide Squad but didn't stay for Tarzan. I'd recommend bringing a portable radio, boombox or anything besides your car radio that gets FM stations because the audio for the movies is on a radio station. You aren't supposed to keep your...

Bring your bunch of teenagers and pizza and snacks for an awesome teen event. Come early, get a few people to bring the kids and the goodies and hang out till the movies begin. Celebrate the birthday just before the show begins. Wonderful evening with little cleanup.

Had a blast at the drive-in. Definitely recommend you arrive early. We showed up an hour before movie time and the line to get in was already 20 cars long

If you ever want to visit a drive in as it was in the 50's this is the one for you. It does have modern amenities such as DLP and soundtrack through the radio, but the snack bar and bathroom are virtually unchanged. Wonderful way to spend an evening.

The drive in is always a fun experience. During the summer, it gets hot, so bring a fan. The kids always play up front underneath the screen while it gets dark--a lot of them have footballs or something to toss around. There are concessions and restroom facilities on site. Lastly, you pay by the carload.

I love going to drive-ins and was excited to find one in Granbury since I was visiting for so long. I really appreciate they honor the military by giving us both a discount on admission and at the concession. I would give the rating of a 5 however, I was rather disappointed with an incident that occurred while I was... More

It is a Drive-In Theater!!!! Not many left in the country and visiting this one is a wonderful trip back in time. You will remember how it used to be when the Stars were really Stars and going to the movies was a real weekend treat. I highly recommend the Brazos Drive-In.

This was our entire family's first trip to a drive-in. We took the advice of some friends and locals by arriving early to get in line before the gate opened. We were in line about 30 minutes before the posted opening time and were 3rd in line. Once inside, we let the kiddos play in the area directly in front... More
