Fun Night at the Movies!

We went for the dusk to dawn showing over Memorial Day weekend. We paid $30, which included the outside food permit, and saw 4 movies! You can't beat that price. There were quite... read more

Is there anything more classically Americana than a drive-in? Bengie's drive in is one of the last of its kind and I encourage you to experience the opportunity before it too disappears (fingers crossed, it never does). Having read other reviews about long lines and small problems of getting situated, we treated it like going to the airport. Get there... More

Having grown up in the midwest, I have fond memories of heading to the drive-in on cool summer nights. You would park the car, spread the blanket, and enjoy the movie. We have been in Baltimore for over 12 years now and have heard of Bengies. Now with a 2 and 7 year old, my wife and I thought to... More

I am very disappointed how my husband and I were treated tonight at The Bengie's Drive-In Theatre. We arrived and were told to turn off our running lights which we did. We paid, received our tickets, and were told our lights were off and we were good to go. Upon reaching the next checkpoint, we were told to pull over... More

We went to the drive in while on vacation. My kids have never been to one since all of them are closed these days. They had a great time eating and watching the movie under the stars. The night we went they were showing 3 movies! We left after the 2nd since we were all falling asleep. Lol Try to... More

I wish I had taken the negative reviews of this place more seriously. There were enough good reviews that I thought it must be ok and those other people did something wrong - boy was I wrong. After driving 1 1/2 hours to the theater, we left after 10 mins of arriving. The people that run this place are C-R-A-Z-Y!... More

First let me start by saying the guy that talks over the intercom, talks way way to much. Less talking the movies would start on time. My friends and I came on the 4th of july hoilday weekend, so we didn't know anything about there having to be two people in the car to watch the movies. The stuff was... More

I consider myself lucky to live so close to this treasure of a place. If you've never experienced it, you need to. It's like stepping back in time. Just be prepared to arrive early for popular first run movies (i.e. Jurassic World type fare) since they do occasionally sell out.

Absolutely a family favorite. We come here at least once a month. Sometimes, we buy the food permit ($10) or just buy from the concession stand. Lines can get pretty long so plan accordingly. Also try to get there early enough because they can get sold out and traffic going in can be bad. Hope there's a faster way to... More

I surprised my wife by being elusive as to where we were going for this evening’s activity. Both she and I had been to drive-ins as an adolescent, but never together. I always remember having fun experiences at these events. Not this one. The wife thought the women's restroom was a bit disgusting and I haven't seen urinals that close... More
