When I was a kid, my parents would put us into our pajamas and to get get us ready for bed and then tell us that we were actually going to the drive in movies! We’d load up the car with snacks, lawn chairs and blankets. I never actually remember seeing any movies. I’m pretty sure I slept through them and my parents enjoyed the peace and quite.
The summer that I was on bed rest, the drive in was perfect! My feet could be up, I could lay down and still watch current movies! When the babies were born, we could watch two movies and they would only wake up to eat!

Outside food and beverage is prohibited. The movies start late enough that dinner can be enjoyed at home and then families can split drink and popcorn from the concession stand.
IWK and IFOF want you to know that meals with your family can be affordable, at home AND on the go!
Tibbs Drive-in opens in March and stays open into the fall. The first movie starts at dark or about 8:30pm. For the price of $10 for adults, $5 for kids ages 4-12 and kids up to age 3 are free, you can watch 2 movies (sometimes three) while your kids will likely sleep through one of them! There are generally movies showing for all age groups and what a great price! Don’t forget to bring cash for admission. Credit card is only accepted at the concession stand but cash is required for entrance.
Tip: there is a playground for the kids to play on at screen #1.
