Great place to go in the summer for family fun and good movies. Everything one would hope for from the greasy yet delicious food to the outdoor playground. Highly recommend if you're in the neighborhood!

I have gone to this dive in every year for decades. The prices are still good, they have a variety of movies throughout the summer. I hope the drive ins never die.

Free to get in to the drive in when you stay next door at the Starlight. Lots of movies available. Looks like there's a choice of three different sets of movies

I highly recommend a trip here, it's a great value for the money. I like that you can go over the another movie if you don't like the one you're watching. They've got a mini-golf course and playground for the kids when they get bored....More
