Review/Giveaway Friday 4/8/11
In honor of the drive in opening this weekend we are doing a Review/Giveaway for the 61 Drive in. My family looks forward to the new season every year for the drive in. We have been going for almost 10 years now!
The Drive in is located Located 5 miles South of Maquoketa on Highway 61. Exit 153
The gates open at 6:30 and the movie starts around 8 pm. Most people go early and enjoy some family time before the movie starts. They have a train ride for the kids, swing sets, people bring foot balls, playing cards, etc.
So this is the way it works, if you haven't been. You find a spot when you get there to park. You can play around or just visit til the movie starts. Once the movie starts you tune your radio to the station they direct you to when you pay and the movie runs through your radio. You can either sit in your car or bring chairs and sit in front of your vehicle.
The Drive in has a concession stand and restrooms. The concession prices are very reasonable and you can go here to print coupons. Also if you buy a gift card for $50 you get $10 more!!
Entrance for the movie is:
Adults 13 & OVER: $7.00
Children 5-12: $3.00
Children 4 & UNDER: FREE
This is my favorite part! You get 2 new movies for this price. You can not go to the theatre and pay this. The movies usually get over around midnightish. It depends on how long the 2 movies are. This is the only way we watch movies before they come out on DVD.
Thanks to the Owner-Dennis Voy for allowing me to giveaway 2 entry tickets for the Drive in. He also has included Free Popcorn vouchers for basically the entire summer! How awesome is this!!
