Stopped here on our Route 66 roadtrip. It's a really well restored/maintained site which I'm sure is fantastic for a throw-back cinema experience. Worth a stop for some photos.

I was so excited when this place opened, and still love coming here. No matter what quality of in-house movie theater, still doesn't beat a drive-in. The fact that the food here is well priced and great tasting just reaffirms this.

This drive in is one of the best I have been to. Their screen appeared to be made of vinyl, which I have not seen before. But the picture was good. And prices were reasonable. Surrounded by honeysuckle, the cars are parked single deep, which...More

This drive in is great! We go multiple times over the season. They have decent foods options and typically better movies options than other local drive ins. The parking areas are very roomy!!!

Always a great time at 66 drive in. Fun for all and popcorn for everyone! You are able to bring in your own edible snacks, but alcoholic beverages are prohibited.

This is a good looking, typically route 66 attraction, 60's style, but unusually well maintained, the concession block is straight from almost any American teen movie and there are a pair of gorgeous kittens living in the ticket booth. It was just $8 each for...More

This is a beautifully restored Drive-In located in a town that takes pride in its Route 66 and Jefferson Hwy history. You see TWO movies at one price ($8 per person)!!! The concession stand was well stocked with great (and well priced) snacks, so there's...More

Great place to watch 2 movies for one cost. We are so blessed to have an "old time" drive in movie theater nearby! There are very few still in operation. We miss the old metal speakers that hung on your window, but the sound which...More

Don't get to go very often. But you get to see 2 movies for a very low price. I think it's $7.00 a person. They have food there or you can bring your own. They have restrooms and a playground for the kids.

Between 8:30-9 pm, basically at dusk.Cars start lining up as early as 6pm, alot of people picnic to fill the time. Due to being an outdoor drive in they are only open from April 1st to the beginning of September.
