I moved to Sacramento from Chicago where there is a ton of drive-ins were every where & I missed it, so then I found this drive in & it is wonderful as far as I am concerned. As far as the people talking about public bathrooms in this place,well every where there is a public bathroom it is never up to the standards of any of our clean home, but that does not bother me because I tend to go before I goto the drive-in. All the times I have went I was satisfied with it all & for the money I spent it was more the adequate & I am very satisfied with this drive,just bring your own stuff & everything will be fine & if you have prude & stuck up standards then go & take your stuck up butt & spend your whole check at the regular movie walk-in theater (or) shut-up with the wining & deal with it like the rest of us & learn that you get what you pay for & the first time that I went I expected nothing posh or nothing fit for a king because I already knew what to expect so to me the place is wonderful &i will always go back over & over again, plus the admission in is so low & you get to see 2 movies for the price of one & less then half of the regular walk-in theaters which charges people like they lost there mind & that is why I goto this drive in because it is very affordable & also when I do not feel like going anywhere then I just turn on my 42inch Samsung HD 1080p flat screen LCD or I just turn on my projector & put in a Blu-Ray movie or just turn on the Netflix account & watch the movie or tv show streams. But this drive in is perfect for me & it keeps more money in my pocket so I love this drive-in. Try it you wont be dissatisfied unless you are just plain stuck up or the Paris Hilton type,but for us regular normal people this drive-in is a GodSend!
Been around over a decade... Yes the place has definitely pickup its pace in the last 4-5 yrs since they went digital and since they started doing premier nights on same day if not even hours earlier than at the movie theaters, we used to have to wait like few weeks to see the new ones on here... So that is the ONLY better things... But... The prices keep going on up like 50cents every 3-4 months in the 2 yrs... Mid 2014 it was $6 , mid2016 $8!? and the restrictions are building up to the point you might be better of to a movie theater. One day... I got in there thinking i could catch 2 movies. Right? Well it seemed like the movie timings have been super thought out to the point u cant hop on to another showing without missing a part of one or another...that without saying that one was on one side from the another... And on popular days.. There is a person checking on the tickets????!!! Like a Butler for ur car!! Lmao.. Get out of here... Never in my many years saw that.. So obviously a greedy management. Their movie pairings sucks... Usually one has nothing to do with the other one and its totally a buzz kill most of the times. Im going to give it a few more gos.. But if there is no fix up on the parking/viewing bumps, a much chill environment .. I might be just as good going to my 5 min nearby drive cinema after all with the Gasoline i spend on my V8 truck to keep battery charged up, the 30 mnt drive to get there, the non stop ticket price raising... And the poor pavement/parking facilities and the dirty concession locations with their overpriced food... Ithink ill break just about even going to the IMAX ..yes .. The IMAX downtown.
First time at a drive in movie theater. All I ever knew about drive-ins was from movies. But oh....I certainly learned a lot that night. Be prepared. Be prepared for a line to enter SO LONG, that it would make the wait at the DMV seem like heaven. Be prepared to be boxed in on all sides by jalopies being driven by drivers who think "right now would be the perfect time to show everyone my love for sorry ass rap." Be prepared to come home and find your shoes, legs and car so filthy from the Martian soil the drive in was built on, you would think you had just walked off the set of mad max: fury road. Be prepared for dollar nachos so STALE, you might as well have found a nice peice of cardboard a Sacramento hobo had been sleeping on for a year, and finely chop it up and season it to taste with a hint of toe cheese. Be prepared for all your kids, neices and nephews to convert to Rastafarianism after they get done being exposed to the finest dank in all of the greater Sacramento area. Lastly....be prepared for the general ghettoness of the entire area outside, a place where every fast food joint is closed at 11 pm, not ONE gas station offers a bathroom to customers, and neighborhood delinquents stop to do the worm at a a chevron gas station as they pump gas. (All things Ive seen). Save your time and money and get some redbox, pizza, and friends and family and enjoy a fun night of not getting shot while you try to watch Finding dory.

My husband and I recently visted the Sacramento Six Drive In on a Saturday evening readily anticipating a pleasant and relaxing evening. After going to Drive-Ins since our childhood, we were very familiar with the "usual" routine and atmosphere but turned a corner and encounted the "obnoxiously unusual". Two hill-billy families were oblivious to the fact that they were not in their own private countryfield and had their lawn chairs, igloos and tables set-up in the DRIVEWAY AREA. These fools were instructing other PAYING guests to drive backwards because "there was no more parking spaces on that row"! It gets even better, they had the nerve to talk trash when we "bogarded" right past them and parked in the space right in front of them. It was the CRAZIEST CRAP that we have ever encountered at drive-in. Needless to say, this dramatic conflict could have been much worse had we chose to lower ourselves to the "trailer park" level. Also, the ignorance and immaturity of these "country bumpkins" could have been prevented had a security & safety team been proactive in managing the grounds and guests. Oh yeah, despite the drama we STILL enjoyed the movies:-)
I grew up in Washington state with little to no drive-in theaters, also in North Dakota and Kansas state, all the same. So when me and my boys moved here in Sacramento, I was very excited when I heard about the West Wind Sacramento Drive In! Been living here for 3 years now and I can honestly say me and my two sons absolutely love it here! We cannot get enough! Actually we spent a few holidays like Halloween and Thanksgiving here, memorable times<3 the prices are decent the food is great and just way fun for killing time or spending some quality time with your friends or loved ones. Although, you should arrive early because the lines can get really long depending on the day. Other than hefty lines, my only complaint is that this place is suppose to be a "drug-free zone" but you tend to find that, that rule is not as enforced as much as I or like any parent would like it be. Other than the downsides of any public place, be sure to bring a blanket or a few chairs and enjoy(:
