What a great time and a real treat seeing a movie outside sitting in the comfort of my truck with the sound system coming from the old style box on a post. Snack Bar too! Great price and double feature. This is a must stop.

It is a great local drive-in that plays new release movies. It is reasonably priced and definitely worth every cent.
