The Deal

$12 for a Drive-in Movie Package for Two (Up to $19 Value)

  • Two admissions to a double feature (up to a $6 value each)
  • One large popcorn (a $5 value)
  • One 32oz soda (a $2 value)

Patrons park facing one of two jumbo screens, where current Hollywood blockbusters light up the night. Each movie’s sound streams through the cars' FM radios so that families and dates can make it as loud or quiet as they’d like. The schedule updates each week, with one screen typically showing a family-friendly pairing.

The Showboat Drive-in

The Rumfolo family's blood seems to have mixed with oil somewhere in the past. It probably happened in the 1950s, when Walter Rumfolo founded the first incarnation of The Showboat Drive-in—a restaurant where his children worked throughout their teenage years. His children must have carried it with them, because today his grandchildren, Johnny and Chris, operate a drive-in movie theater by the same name. They've preserved the original venue's neighborly vibe and kept the family’s blood intertwined with car engines by employing Johnny's sons to sell tickets and run the projector. Today, the small-town ambiance has a much larger area to cover, and each of the theater's two jumbo screens steps up to the task by accommodating 400 cars full of spectators.

Guests park at dusk for a night at the movies—a full night, with double features painting the sky silver for hours. Audiences access the films' sound through their FM radios so that they don’t have to swipe a copy of the script and have their children read the parts. Together, families and dates can sit on lawn chairs, blankets, or inside the car as they lose themselves in the plot and munch concessions that range from burgers to candy and popcorn. The staff caters to viewers at any point during the films or intermission, providing a playground for restless youngsters and jumping cars if their batteries fizzle.
