Always great to hang out with family and friends under the stars and watch a double feature. If coming on a premiere weekend, best to be here in line before 6 as they do sell out. Good variety for concessions, clean bathrooms. Great considering they have essentially no competition (only drive in for hundreds of miles)

It had been almost a decade since my last drive in experience. This was so much fun. While weather plays a big part, so choose wisely, I think it would be good even in the rain. There can be a line and the parking spaces go quick. The spaces are graded to angle your vehicle which is outstanding.... though it... More

Showboat Drive-In is definitely a great way to spend the evening with the kids. You can't beat the value ($6 for TWO movies!) and the employees are super nice. The concession area and restrooms were really clean. The food was typical concession fare - though a bit overpriced for the quality and size (about $10 for small burger, fries and... More

Great drive in movie place. We paid $7 for an adult ticket and got to see two brand new movies (Ghostbusters & The Shallows), great value. The only complaint I have is during the first movie (Ghostbusters) there was two-three blue lines that ran vertical on the screen, they weren't there during the second movie. The consession stand was good... More

We seek out drive in movie theaters wherever we go, this is one of the true gems in a dying pop culture phenomenon. Good, reasonably priced concession food + two movies for the price of one in a chain theater...but you can't put a price on the experience. Please go and support this drive in, they've done a great job... More

I had never visited a drive-in before going to Showboat. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. It was a bit hard to hear because of the multiple car with their windows rolled down, all tuned to the same FM station caused an echo. Overall it was a great way to take in a movie with the kids.

The only movies we see anymore. No rude talking person right beside you and the kid can roll around in the truck bed.

What a fun way to watch a movie. I like how 1 of the 2 screens is usually family-friendly, and plenty of new releases. Get there early as they sell out a number of weekends. We like to go as a family, and often save a few dollars using Groupon. that being said, regular price is reasonable, and the cost... More

Great time and double features of newest movies, price is very reasonable, doesn't open until dark, privacy of your own vehicle.. Bring drinks and snacks but they do have a snack bar with bathrooms. Food is good but gets crowded sometimes... Great place for families and kid, bring your blankets and pillows for a great night out
