We are a two screen drive-in theatre, offering first run movie features at "Family Affordable Prices". We have a double feature policy (offering movie patrons two-first run films per night; per screen) for one low admission price! 

The Family Drive-In was built by The Dalke family and opened on June 14, 1956. The theatre is currently in it's 62nd year of operation!  We are the only remaining drive-in theatre in the Washington metropolitian area. You can find us in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley, just 7 miles south of Winchester, Virginia on I-81! (Exit 307-Stephens City) We are any easy ride from the Washington area via I-66 to I-81 or I-70 in Maryland to I-81 South.


Our theatre offers many "classic" features, including a playground for the children, car speakers, retro pre-show music....as well as "modern" features, including digital projection, movie stereo sound (via your car radio), and a full line of concessions to meet everyone's desire!


Experiencing a night at the drive-in is so much different than seeing a movie at the local multiplex.... it is very much like a tailgate party at a sporting event.  When you combine the movies; family & friends; your dog; being able to read, listen to music or play ball or games before the movies; enjoying some great food from our concession stand; sitting under "the stars" or a bright moon; enjoying a true American classic "drive-in theatre"..... it all makes seeing a movie with us an event that is memorable!


Through out the year, we offer many family-oriented events, and classic car shows and nights--so check out our Promotions page for event information!  Need driving directions to our theatre? Click on our "Driving Directions" link.  


We are "Dog Friendly" so bring your family dog to the movies! 


Hope to see you soon......."Under the stars"
