Love this place. Family friendly and even pet friendly too (yes you can take your dog). The atmosphere is great. No more annoying people kicking the back of your seat or annoyingly playing with their mobile phones... its just you and your friends in your car. You can have the sound up as high or low as you want as you tune in via your car stereo. We prefer to go to the later starting movies 9.30pm and later as there are less kids wandering around as that can get quite annoying after a while. Works out much cheaper than a traditional cinema too especially if you take a car load. On hot summer nights take a blanket and sit outside your car for a magical experience.
I was surprised by my husband for The Muppets movie and the whole experience was unforgetable. It's a great vibe, with loads of families and kids in pyjamas, it was a really nice way to get away from the hustle and bustle of Melbourne. I loved it!
You can get a radio at the cafe and that was perfect if you forgot yours or you don't want to use your car's radio. Can't wait to go again, get there early and don't forget to get buy popcorn!
My new love the drive in movies, I had never been to the drive in movies so my friend took me there for a girls night out and now I think I like it more than the normal movies. We took some takeaway dinner (and got popcorn from the shop there) loaded up the car with Donnas and pillows and bunkered down for a double feature (much better deal than a single movie $12, double $15). They don't have the full range of movies like the normal cinemas but they do have a few to chose from so if you see one you like pop up I highly recommend giving it a crack, it might just suprise you!
Step back in time and go to the drive ins. I find that it works out much cheaper, you can take your own food or buy it there and they have single and double features. My kids prefer the drive ins than the movies because they dont have to whisper.
