Great time visiting the drive in. Five huge screens. Great views from all over. Movie tickets and food were both inexpensive. Buying refreshments there makes you feel like you are helping their cause as I know they don't make much off the movies. Great family get together.

It's sad to see old school drive in's disappearing but we are very lucky to have one still in the buffalo area. There are 5 screens and everything is very well kept. Concession stand is clean and updated with much to choose from without spending an arm and a leg.

Staying overnight in Lockport. While driving to hotel, saw the 5 screen drive-in and knew we had to see a movie there. Awesome facility! Wonderful snackbar and great staff. Tried a loganberry soda! Very good! Whole experience was like we had gone back in time-- while dating we used to go to drive-ins every summer, in big brother's '37 chevy.... More

First time at a drive-in movie theater. Was visiting Buffalo for a weekend, and absolutely loved my time at Transit. Definitely arrive at least 30-45 minutes before your showing, as you'll want to get a good spot and get set up with food and beverages. While it's always a good idea to bring your own food, it's great to help... More

We have been going to the Transit for over 30 years - and we love it. It's a great time to get out to see a movie with friends and family. I love that they let you sit outside in chairs, and that dogs are allowed. It's a bit of a drive from our house - but go when we... More

Really fun place for families to go. So much better than a movie theater. Would recommend bringing some snacks and pillows and blankets if you have a truck and want to sit in the back. Nothing like a movie under the stars!

Absolutely love going to the drive-in. The recent renovations have made it even better! The food is average at the concession stand. I've viewed movies from all screens and really havent had a bad view. The only bad thing I can say is trying to get into the drive-in and the wait on Transit rd can be scary/dangerous.

Went to the Transit Drive-in for the first time and had a blast. The drive-in is a true step back in time. The bathrooms are super clean and the concession stand is worth visiting not just for the awesome food but to look at all the memorabilia that they have in there. If you go, please read the rules because... More

I saw the owner practically hit a woman on Friday night who was trying to get a refund because he wanted her to park in back row. Back row is not ideal for families. Don't know where the lady's husband was, but we had to stop ourselves from getting in the mix. The woman was not hitting him, she just... More
