just noticed ours charges $5.00 per person on double feature night and $4.00 per personon single feature night.....

their claim to not charging by the car-load is that they are running first run movies


found their site:Because we show 1st. run movies We have to charge by the Person not Car load
Admission

Accepting Most Major Credit Cards

Adult: 12 yr. and up $5.00 on Double Feature Nights
Child 3 yr. thru 11 yr. $2.00

Single Feature nights are Adults $4.00

I grew up in texas going with my parents, mom made pink lemonade and popcorn. We brought blankets and pillows and my sister and I never made it to the end. I wish I could take my boys to one on a summers evening. You don't think mom and dad were kissin and stuff when we fell asleep. :mad: :mad:

We've got two each about 15 mins from each, used to go a lot way back in the HS days, been back once with the kids. One has really gone down hill, someone was shot there about a year ago... So don't think I'll be going back to that one.. The other is nice, and gives me an idea for a friday night.. Thanks Milk............

Got a double up in Gibson City IL. You face the east or the west and you tune in on your FM radio depending on which one your watching.

We've got one somewhat near us (on a highway out of town). But it is of the, how do you say, adult variety. Still in business, too.

There was 3 in town when I was a kid, now just one and I havn't been to it in years, although my kids have been there some.

It now has 5 screens, which sounds interesting, they show more than one movie at a time.

The fun part as a kid was watching the X movies from the the field behind the theater.

We have a couple within about a 50min drive. One is family owned, still charges by the carload, has lots of triple features in the summer. I think we paid about $15 for 3 shows (myself,wife and 2 boys) We support it as much as possible however as mentioned earlier it is a late night - not back home until around 3am. You can bring in whatever you want to eat/drink, but we usually make a trip to the snack bar...again to support the business. (snack bar prices are expectedly high)...they still play the signing and dancing snack ad

Last time we went I was told that it was for sale - My wife actually expressed some interest...

We have one a couple miles away. It does a great business and costs either $15 or $20 a car, for 2 movies. It almost always shows those "first runs". We bring our neices and nephew a few times a year when they come in from NJ because they don't have one nearby. They love it.

I think I went to that Drive-In theater with an old girlfriend from Ojai...don't remember what the movie was :rolleyes:

I don't know of ANY drive-in theaters around here. The last one that I remember was the one at the county line that showed...um...well...adult features.
