This place is awesome. What a great way to watch a movie. Reasonable prices, better food than any standard movie theatre, and you are outside! Everyone visiting the area should visit this place at least one time.

Always a nice experience. And so reasonably priced for getting a double feature. Always worth the trip and something different to do.

They do state "No outside food". I don't see where a box of candy or something would be against the rules, but don't bring a picnic and set it up outside your car. They make their profits on the concession stand, so if... More

Is it dog friendly?
