    Cash only, $9 a person. Remember to bring a radio if you don't want to drain your car battery. Late night showings have plenty of parking open, but the snack bar closes early. Very classic feel

    Great place. For the price of tickets and that you fact that you get two movies it's about the best deal you'll find anywhere. Bathrooms are immaculate which is an amazing feat in itself.

    If you arrive while another movie is playing, wait in the front or the back. If you go down an aisle you might be trapped in by people I'm chairs.

    If you have any vehicle other than a car pay attention to the yellow lines or you will be asked to move.

    Decent drive-in, but on the pricey side. Price is per person, NOT per car.

    Always bring your own food and drinks. No one cares here. Inexpensive and way more comfortable than any regular movie theater.

    Theatre two park to the right side because power lines obstruct view. It's annoying like those little hairs in old school movies.
