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

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.

Get your favorite partner, blankets and lawn chairs. Brings back wonderful memories. Going to the drive-in. It's a dying entertainment, but, the 66 in Carthage, Mo is keeping it alive and doing a fantastic job of it.

My family and I recently went to the 66 Drive-in, the grounds were clean and I found it to be a safe environment. We visited the snack bar and the prices were well below a regular theater. We had a great time and would recommend...More

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.
