The old timey feeling of drive in theaters is charming, but there comes a time when it's time to update things just a little bit. My husband and I love drive ins, which is why we chose to spend our first night in the Dells at Big Sky. We were thrilled at having the option to select from two different... More

We saw "Iron Man 3" and "Oz The Great and Powerful." Was so nice to see that a true drive in theater still existed. They had a full snack bar with burgers and hotdogs, but they also do allow you to bring in your own food and drink (no alcohol). The sound quality was good, but it also does depend... More

Adorable, memorable, felt like I was a kid again! Please don't modernize this place; it will lose it's charm and authenticity. So thrilled my kids were able to experience a true drive-in theater! My 9 and 11 year old boys loved it! My husband and I got to relive our childhoods for a nite!

Our drive-ins are disappearing, there is one by the dells (Big Sky) and one in Jefferson, WI. I have only been to the Dells. We like it because you get two movies for the price of one in a sit down theatre. You can bring your own food/drink or check out the consession stand for great snack food. Friendly Staff.

It was my first time here, and it was awesome. We had a good spot so movie was clear. Just the bugs got a bit annoying. Didnt hear much noise from the other screen playing. Plus two movies for the price of one at the theater.

We live in the Dells and this place is classic. Go early so you can get up front. It is a great deal for seeing two movies. Way better than the movie theater.

First time to an outdoor in years, and my wife and I brought 2 friends from German along. Apparently an outdoor theater does no exist in Germany, so they were in awe to be able to sit outside and watch a movie! What a concept! We all enjoyed it, and will definetly go back. Well, me and my wife anyways!

There are very few drive ins in existence anymore, so we were really excited to go! The snack bar is marketed as huge and bright....it's really not but it's what you would expect at a drive in. It was extremely buggy once the sun went down so we bought a mosquito coil and matches at the snack bar...it didn't work... More
