Of course, drive in movies are not a new thing but for a generation that didn't get to experience the era, it's an amazing change of pace from the traditional movie theaters. Great date night destination.

Always great to hang out with family and friends under the stars and watch a double feature. If coming on a premiere weekend, best to be here in line before 6 as they do sell out. Good variety for concessions, clean bathrooms. Great considering they...More

Showboat Drive-In is definitely a great way to spend the evening with the kids. You can't beat the value ($6 for TWO movies!) and the employees are super nice. The concession area and restrooms were really clean. The food was typical concession fare - though...More

Great drive in movie place. We paid $7 for an adult ticket and got to see two brand new movies (Ghostbusters & The Shallows), great value. The only complaint I have is during the first movie (Ghostbusters) there was two-three blue lines that ran vertical...More

We seek out drive in movie theaters wherever we go, this is one of the true gems in a dying pop culture phenomenon. Good, reasonably priced concession food + two movies for the price of one in a chain theater...but you can't put a price...More

I had never visited a drive-in before going to Showboat. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. It was a bit hard to hear because of the multiple car with their windows rolled down, all tuned to the same FM station caused an echo. Overall it was...More
