Except the prices are a little steep. Kids are only $1 though. Also, they don't have the raised parking spaces (I think to make it better for their weekend swap meets.) Otherwise, it is clean and the screens weren't too dark.

2 adults two kids under 10 for 20 bucks and you get TWO movies. Great value. Sound is as good as your car speakers and they don't give you grief for putting out lawn chairs. Snacks are cheap but you can bring your own food...More

Drive in is cool and offers showing for all new movies. Must get there early though. Cheap pricing and a variety of food for good prices at the snack bar.

Didn't even know that drive in movies still existed, so we were delighted to find this one. It's easy to find in Riverside and well signposted. Take your own food and drink. For the full experience also take cushions and park facing away from the...More

Used to love those drive-in theatres growing up and this is the perfect spot to go back to the old days. Very affordable price as well. Loved the food - authentic Mexican food.

This is the original type of drive in. Nothing fancy. No upgrades, just flat areas to park or sit outside the car
