Great experience, bringing portable radio/boom box makes for better sound and not worrying about car radio draining battery

Not every day does one get to enjoy a real drive-in. My friend and I loved it. Saw Spiderman and had a wonderful time. Affordable, fun and a great way to see a movie.

We go early because it's just part of the fun. We are in line 20 minutes before the gate opens, but people trickle in right up to show time.. You will get in even if you go late, but tailgating is fun.
