This is a great drive-in! It is well kept and has a nice grassy park-like atmosphere. The food is spectacular as are the staff and management. If you have not been here, make plans this year. You will not regret the trip.The Midway often shows triple features and is open from April to October or early November. This is the sister drive-in to the recently reopened Black River Drive-in in Watertown which is also a top notch operation.
