What a great way to spend a summer evening! Two shows for the price of one, great snack stand, and lots of family fun!

My husband and I try to go here once every summer. It's $10 a piece for two movies. The only downfall is their restrooms. We like going here. It's good for date night. We'll keep our yearly tradition of going.

We love to come early, get a nice spot to park and play Frisbee near the screen with the kids. We bring some food and get drinks, popcorn and ice cream from the concessions. The lines are long for those and the restrooms. So get...More

I recommend bringing your own food and drink. It is a fun activity that is very affordable. The food they sell is gross and overpriced. They started the previews/ start of the movie before it was completely dark out. Use the restroom before you get...More

Love this drive-in! Prices are reasonable for both movies and sound quality has improved. Definitely returning when they are open.

There are very few drive/ins left in the ZuS and this one does not disappoint. Reasonably priced movies and snacks. I would recommend getting there early to get best car parking.

Nothing beats the 49er for movies. Always a good time and for $5 per movie you can't go wrong. Even the food there is good. This is a don't miss.

Had a pretty good time there. Had not been there in 20 years. It's changed a bit. The speakers that you hung on your window are gone - tune your radio to a station. A good family outing and you get to se a couple...More

No, it's cash only. They have an ATM but it's generic and charges for cash withdrawal.
