    Great value! $8.50 per person for 3 movies! The best is when a children's movie plays first, and a mom and dad movie plays after the kiddo is asleep. Forever on our summer bucket list!

    Bring cash they don't take cards. Great place for date night, less than $20 for 2 adults! Open every night in the summer! Love how they let people grill out here- feels almost like camping in the city

    Fill a cooler with beers and grab your portable grill to make this an all-evening event. Gates open at 7, so you can spend a couple hours tossing a frisbee around and noshing on brats before the movie Read more

    Popcorn is killer. One of the reasons I come here is because of the great concession stand.

    Get here early. Seriously. If you don't, you very likely won't get in. Only 500 car capacity and very popular on nice summer evenings.

    Best drive in ever! Speakers for first few rows, triple feature for one low price and lots of cheaply priced and deliciously tasting concessions. Plus, you can grill!

    8.50 for up to three movies plus you can bring your own food in can't beat that arrive early to get a good spot

    It'd be great if they had a way to keep the large vehicles toward the back so they don't block everyone else's view. Also, how rude do you have to be to take up 2 spaces? C'mon folks, think of others.

    Enter from the east. They typically use two ticket booths for that line and only one for the line entering from the west.

    Concessions are well worth the wait in line. Great selection, esp the fries, pizza and ice cream treats.

    The burgers, hot dogs and fries at the concession stand are the best ever.

    $8 adults and $1 kids. Great deal for 3 movies. Bring your grill and snacks and make sure you arrive early.

    Park in the back row nerd. She will never go down on you parked by the concession stand.

    Be courteous to others - if you're going to leave ten minutes before the film is over, try having your headlights OFF til you move!?!

    Dead battery? They have a box you can use to jump your car by concessions and it's free.

    go very early (it fills up fast on really nice days). bring a grill and a cooler. you probably won't notice much of the later movies, but that's not the point.

    They need to have some sort of noise policy. Just because you're not in a theater doesn't mean you shouldn't practice the same ettiquette.

    Avoid parking facing a vehicle facing you. Headlights will blind you in the middle of a flick
