Tired of getting fleeced at Noah's Ark? Need refuge from shrieking kids? Make sure you plan on a visit one evening to this American icon. I felt like I was driving into a Field of Dreams set. The drive-in cinema is located in a lovely...More

Great place to relax and catch a show. It is nice to step back in time a little bit to experience the drive in movie theater. All kids should experience this.

We love going here at least once or twice a year. We especially like the double feature. The price is decent and they have a really nice snack bar with delicious popcorn and even hamburgers, and pizza.

The films weren't to our liking during our vacation so we did not go, but we usually never miss out on the drive in. Brings back a ton of great memories. The Mamaburger is great - they're not stingy with the onions!

$26 for a family of 4 to see a double-feature of newly released movies can't be beat. The prices in the concession stand were reasonable too. Many visitors brought lawn chairs and blankets. We will definitely go back.
