Opened on June 29, 1961, the 5 Mile Drive-In, accommodated 432 cars. It is immaculately maintained and one of the few that still has a playground for the children. Local vicinity broadcasts have replaced the traditional speakers on both AM and FM frequencies.

Now with a capacity for 500-cars, it is open seasonally on Friday, Saturday and Sunday featuring a double bill from Memorial Day thru Labor Day. Contributed by Chuck Van Bibber

Independent theatres like drive-in theatres make very little from ticket sales. Most, if not all of that money goes back to the film distribution company and to operating costs of the theatre. The real money maker for an independent theatre is the concession stand.

That is why they don't want outside food in the theatre. So, please support your local drive-in or local theatre buy purchasing items at their concession stand. They would appreciate it. As for large chain theatres, that's another story.

Great Experience! We watched Hancock and Sex in the City. Bring a radio with Batteries to save your car's battery. Saw a few people who needed a jump. The last movie played till 2:30am! The experience was awesome. Will come back again with whole family.
