“Good family fun and will build memories with kids”
Reviewed 22 June 2013

We usually go to McDonalds, etc., and take it early to get a good seat/location. Recommend getting their shortly after opening on Fridays and Saturdays, weekdays are not a crowded. We take fold-up seat, radio, cooler and snacks thoughout both movies. Prices have risen over the past few years, but since they are the only outdoor theater in the area, supply and demand takes effect. Overall a good time though!

“One of the last few drive in theatres around.”
Reviewed 9 June 2013

You can never go wrong with drive in movies and Skyview will not let you down, pizza's, burgers, and more at the snackbar. $10 admission per adult and one free child per adult. This one still has a full playground for the kids. Recently upgraded HD system.

“The only drive-in near St. Louis”
Reviewed 12 April 2013 via mobile


Recently visited this drive-in theater and it was pretty good experience. Compared to going to a regular theater you save on admission cost, watch 2 full movies and don't have to bothered with noise much from others (except for the folks in the car from you). It is equivalent to watching movies at home.

Good thing the staff is plesant enough because this is the only location close to the St. Louis, MO metro area. Bring your own snacks, which is allowable (another benefit of a drive-in) because their's is expensive.

Groupon usually offer great deals so check that out as well.

“A great night with family and friends!”
Reviewed 7 April 2013

I was part of a group that had the three vehicles, three kids and six adults and everyone had a blast! If you go with multiple vehicles make sure that they are about the same height because there is orange pole parking for SUV and trucks along with pole parking for cars. We brought our own snacks and drinks, but there is a concession stand that has food and drink as well. Make sure to get there early because the lines to get in starts at about 6pm or so. We brought our washer set and the kids played in the playground that is in front of one of the screens. There are Groupon deals but it is only $10 per adult with kids under 12 for free. Would highly recommend! The website is http://www.skyview-drive-in.com/.

“Olden days family fun”
Reviewed 1 April 2013

A blast from the past this theater offers everything from the playground to pop corn made right on site. A double feature. Plenty of good parking and a place to remember forever
