Description:

Families and friends have been making memories at our drive-in movie...

Families and friends have been making memories at our drive-in movie theatre ever since we built and opened in 2003. We show new double features year-round. For the full drive-in experience, visit our 50's Cafe to grab Rockin' Eats & Tasty Treats. Arrive 30 to 60 minutes early to skip the lines and enjoy the freedom!

*Voted best place to watch a sunset. (Lubbock Avalanche-Journal 2012, 2014)

*Voted best family entertainment. (Lubbock Avalanche-Journal 2007)

*Trip Advisor ranked #1 drive-in theatre in Texas, #3 drive-in theatre in U.S.A. (2014)

Love the nostalgia at this place! Good prices and fun for the whole family. The only thing I didn't like is that you can't save places for other families or friend to meet up with you and you have to sit your folding chairs right in front of or beside your vehicle instead of being able to have a larger...

We love to take our family to watch movies in the Summer here! It is so much fun! The food is great. The service is good. The entire experience is awesome! And you cannot beat their prices for watching two movies!

It's a great value for your money! The kiddos loved the playground area, especially the merry go round! Grandma loved the nostalgic feel of an "oldies" style drive inn. My husband loved the food at the '50s café, and I loved the cost, which was quite a bit more affordable than a sit in movie theater. I also loved that... More

Inexpensive for double feature - food good and reasonably priced - nice way to go out without really having to dress up, etc.

The theater is awesome and retro, but it needs a giant wooden wall surrounding its property. The open plains of Texas are just too windy and dusty during a storm. My sweetheart and I couldn't enjoy the movie as much as we would have liked to for that very reason. Every time we opened our windows to get some fresh... More

We love our drive in at home and had some free time on out vacation so came out to this one. The area is clean, offers three screens and a full service kitchen so you can have dinner and a movie all in the same place. Very clean and very well maintained. Two thumbs up.

This is not your old style drive in. It is clean and kept up with current technology used to project the movies and to send sound over your radio so that you don't have to have the old speakers hanging on your window. It is open in all seasons. The price is more reasonable than walk in movie theaters and... More
