Our first time at a drive in! We got there early to get a good spot. Only bad thing - it was so HOT while we waited for the movie. We turned the car off to save gas and energy, but it was over 100 degrees out. Would be nice if there was wifi or movie trivia/previews on prior to... More

I totally love this place. Years ago, when my son and my nephew were under ten we would take them to this theatre and have sooo much fun. This trip my mother, sister and I went on a Saturday evening and it was so great and heartwarming. We saw a comedy and ate food that we brought in with us.... More

I have to admit, I am a little spoiled as far as drive-in theaters are concerned. I spent many a summer at my grandparent's place in northern Indiana next to an awesome little drive in that really set the bar high. Grass berms to angle your car upwards, all working window speakers, dark skies because it is out in the... More

I work a lot so when I can my wife & I try to do the most together as a family. This time we decided on a movie night at the local drive-in at Glendale 9 Drive-In. The place looks old but has that vintage look from the old days. For a Friday night it wasn't too crowded, the price... More

Oh my. Well, if you want to do something interesting and new for a night, this is always a good idea. Since there aren't too many drive-in theaters these days, why not? I've been here a few times. I live locally. I went here with the kids once and with some adults twice before. All the times I have been... More

A great bit of nostalgia. One of the few Drive-in theaters left in the US. A great place especially if you have little ones. They can come in their pajamas, enjoy some snacks brought from home and sleep when they are tired - all at a reasonable price.

Pros- it's an experience to do as a family and even with friends. Load up some chairs, pillows, blankets and maybe a beverage ;) into the pick up truck. Back into a spot and set it up and enjoy a flick outside on a big screen. Cons- I've been and have had rude others nearby, some actually cooking onsite, kids... More

I have gone to this drive in for years. It is your basic drive in, nothing fancy about it. Good snack bar, clean bathrooms and a small playground area for the kids. We enjoy ourselves everytime we go.
