GETTING THERE:

Q: Are you a drive-in movie theater?

A: Yes We are! BUT WE ARE the FIRST AND ONLY  MINI-URBAN DRIVE-IN. So we are not located in a giant field with 300 car spots. We are right in the middle of the city and have created a very Austin, very intimate drive-in movie watching experience. Currently, we have 15-25 car slots available per showing in ATX and 40 in Round Rock.

Q: What kind of movies do you show?

A: We are kinda like BOB FM, we play anything WE WANT. Our main rule is it has to be something that was made during the days of drive-ins. 1940s to 1980s. We also show NEW INDIE movies, and anything that was meant to be seen in a drive-in setting.

Q: How much is it?

A:Our ticket packages start at $25-$35 for a car slot for 2 or the Car Slot for 2 with Concession.  You tune in through your FM radio. NO HIDING IN THE TRUNK LIKE THOSE CRAZY KIDS DID IN THE 1950s OK we trust you!

If a ticket does not show up as an option  it means it's sold out!
