Happy Family in a Car


We have parking sections for different types of vehicles. Large trucks and vans, as well as vehicles with roof racks carrying items, should be parked at the back row only. If you have a  car, we suggest you park in the car-only section: the first six rows on right side of the field - here your view of the screen will not be blocked by larger vehicles. Otherwise, you can park wherever you like. Remember to keep all back doors (hatch) on a level with the vehicle's roof. If you need one, we have tie downs available.

Movie Sound
We recommend that any vehicle that enters the drive-in have a working FM radio.  We transmit through 88.7 FM.
We can not guarantee that you will be able to find a working speaker.  

Drive-In Movie Car Speakers


Use your car stereo (88.7FM) for the movie sound. You will see speakers in most parking spots; however, while we are working to repair them, very few if any are currently in working order.  

Drive-in Snack Bar

Our snack bar has a full-service menu that offers everything from snacks to full meals. In preparing our food, we use only the best ingredients and name-brand products such as Heinz™ for our ketchup and French's™ for our mustard. Our kosher dill pickle chips are the best you will ever taste. We also serve the famous Brew City™ fries and onion rings, which are made with a perfectly seasoned beer-batter.


Try our mouth-watering Thunder Burgers, a five-ounce man-sized burger made from Black Angus steers from our farm in Piermont, New Hampshire, just across the river. Please note that we do not serve lettuce and tomatoes on our burgers. You can also enjoy our cheeseburgers (choose between Cabot™ cheddar and American cheese) served with your choice of the following:

  • Pickle
  • Chopped Onion
  • Mustard
  • Mayonnaise

Important Reminders
