I would suggest calling ahead to see which movies are playing, they have two screens on opposing sides of a field that play different movies at the same time. Best part is.it's a two for one, if you get there for the first movie you can stay for the movie that follows. When we went we got to watch Suicide... More

My friends and I (with our respective families) went out to try this drive in movie for fun and just for experience - a group of 18 all in all. The place is ok. The restrooms are clean which is a plus. It was our experience at the concession stand that made me say not to go back to this... More

Very poor customer service. I would give them a zero if it's possible. We had 6 people in the car, we paid to watch 2 feature movies in Screen 2, but before the 1st feature movie started, 3 people in our group wanted to watch the featured film in Screen 1 instead. You can literally see both screens from where... More

This is an old school drive in. Bring a portable radio and wear long sleeved clothing and you are ready to watch the movie. They let you bring in snack and soft drinks too, They also have a snack bar. This is the best activity I have ever been to in the Dells. Old school fun!

It was great to be able to take our girls to experience a drive-in. Big Sky is very family friendly with no rated R movies. Bring bug spray and your own snacks (although they do have a snack bar.) Some of us sat in folding chairs, some sacked out in the back of the van with the hatch up, and... More

I took my 9 year old grandson here Saturday night thinking he would be bored without his video games. He loved the snack bar, playing with kids until it got dark and laying on the top of my car watching the movie. Pleasant surprise.

Great old-school drive in. Two screens showing 2 double features (but you have to pick a screen, you can't hop from one to the other). Pack properly: comfy chair, bug spray (just in case), a blanket or sweatshirt, a radio (with extra batteries) and a flashlight to check the ground before you leave. Don't count on your car radio -...

Brought back great memories of our childhood drive-in trips. Big Sky even has the 60's style entrance/exit signs and the posts where the speakers used to hang. Now the sound comes thru your car radio. First run movies (2), though our kids were too tired to make it thru the 2nd movie. Bathrooms were updated and super clean. Snack bar... More
