Editorial review from Citysearch 8/8/2012

Fire the lady at the booth last night(8-7-12). She sent us to the wrong movie. We wanted to watch Ice Age and Dairy of a Whimpy Kid. We ended up watching Ted and Snow White and the Huntsman. She said go straight back, we did, MAKE YOUR DIRECTIONS MORE EXPLICIT !!!! more

Great for families with young children 5/19/2011

Wow. What a godsend for our family. We have a 2 year old who is the typical loud roudy kid. We'd never think of taking her to a regular theater but at the drive-in she has fun watching the movie and falling asleep in her car seat. Yes, there was some difficulty with the radio transmitter. We did manage to get it coiled around our car's antenna but there was still interference. We'll try bringing a battery powered radio next time to see if there's an improvement. Even so, the drive-in is a fun night out and we can take our daughter along with us so it's well worth it to us to put up with bad audio. more

Satellite Radio's not admitted!!!! 7/24/2010

they do not broadcast into parking area it is broadcast through this rediculous coiled wire that you must first figure out a way to get it attached to your care(bring electrical tape), then if you managed to get it attached if you have a newer car with a preinstalled manufacurers sattelite ready radio it is awful, the hum you get overpowers the movie and you just wasted your money for 4hrs of god-awful radio hum and don't forget some other radio station cutting in. Dont ask me how you are suppose to get a handheld radio to work because you still have to get the wire they have hanging there attached to it. Also, the staff they have in the concession area are rediculous!!!!!!! Just spend the money and go to the normal theatre, much more worth the dime then taking the risk. Pros: its a drive-in Cons: if you have preinstalled mfg radio dont go!!! more

Perfect 6/19/2009

Drive in double-features! 8/22/2008

As with most things in life, this movie experience is what you make of it. Pros: 2 for 1..plus you get ride my car! Cons: Watch out for dead batteries. Careful with the antenna mount... it can scratch your paint if you have an electric antenna and forget to remove it first. more

Serves the basic purpose. 6/26/2008

I've been going to Drive-Ins since I was a kid and I love them. When we moved up here from Abilene, Texas, one of the first things we did was look for a drive-in. In Abilene, they have a great one that we loved. We found this one in Auburn. We have been many times in past 2 years and have enjoyed taking our girls. Here's the Pros & Cons: Pros: It has 6 screens Cons: Dated Stereo System, Too many restrictions, Not Higher Heighth Vehicle Friendly more

Valley 6 Drive-In (The best summer fun opens 04/06/07) 4/4/2007

I am so excited about the drive-in opening on Friday. I go every year just about every other week more if possible. It is so much fun. My husband takes the truck and I take the van and we park next to each other. We sit in the van together and the kids take pillows and blankets and sit in the back of the truck. Once in awhile we leave the kids home and get to pretend we are back in high school and go out to dinner and the drive-in. So far all of our experiences have been great. Even if we've seen a movie we'll go just cause it's fun. The people who work there have been nice and the price to get in is pretty cheap especially if you have kids under 12. The popcorn is great. It is accually so good that when we go, my sister has us buy her a bag to give her the next day. The refreshments are a little pricey but well worth it, and the great thing is if you don't want to spend the extra money on drive-in munchies you can bring your own. It's a must do for the summer. There's nothing better than to go to the drive-in on a warm summer night with your windows rolled down to feel the cool, fresh air, eating buttery popcorn, sipping soda watching a good movie accually two since you get two movies for the price of one. Remember the drive-in is opening this Friday 4/6/07 go and have fun. Pros: Cheap family fun, friendly service, yummy snack bar. Cons: I really can't think of any. more

GREAT FOR A FAMILY NIGHT!! OLD TYME FUN KIDS & PARENTS CAN ENJOY EXPERIENCING TOGETHER! 8/22/2006

We took our daughters age 10 & 13 for their first time at a drive-in and had a great time! There were no probs with the staff and we were allowed to sit outside while the girls camped out in the back of our van. It did get a little chilly so I recommend taking some blankets and pillows. I also brought OFF spray for the curious critters. All in all it was fun to be able to enjoy something that is a hard-to-find taste of a bygone era in today's world. I'm glad our kid's got to experience it. The popcorn wasn't too bad either (we brought our own sweets and drinks). My husband & I are going back this weekend for a 'date'! more

This is a cheap family fun! 5/26/2006

Drive-ins are really great if you have kids under 12, because they are free!! Last year I took my little sister and her slumber party of friends to the movies( which was her and 3 others) and I only had to pay for myself. It saved me alot. As you might know there's double features, but the girls last year wanted to see "" Mean Girls"" and they were playing ""Troy"" along with it, which to me kids are not really into and they were really bored. My suggestion is if you want to see 2 movies, make sure you will like them both, cause you have to see the both at 1 area. Besides that it's really fun and cheap. I am taking my son and his uncle tomorrow!! Pros: Inexpensive, 2 for the price of 1, Relaxing in the car Cons: Can't sit on hood, Bathrooms R disgustin more

Forget the snot nosed staff-have a blast 7/12/2002

Good old fashioned fun, if you can tolerate the wet behind the ears security boys harrasing you, lol. No sitting outside the vehicle (so go on a cool night), and even if there is no one else in the theatre (on a weeknight) you have to park your van or truck in the way back or way front, which I can understand for crowded theatres, but when we went there were 3 other cars! LOL Not the best clarity of sound and picture, but for the experience, it's great and the kids LOVE it! Also makes a great date! Pros: double feature, inexpensive, can move/talk/etc Cons: can't be out of car, snotty staff, crappy snack bar more
