It was quite a enjoyable experience when I got to go to The Silver Drive-In Theater last summer with my aunt and her friends. I had the best time. The Silver Lake Drive-In Theater is such an amazing place. There was so much to do and see. I cant wait to go back really soon. I love this place.

I grew up on Silver Lake as a child until 12 years old. I'm very thankful to have great memories from the Charcoal Corral and Drive In. Always a great time!! It's awesome to see that it's still going strong. It's probably the nicest one in the USA and definitely my favorite. Thanks to the Stefanon family for making this a reality.
