I didnt think this place was very good at all. First of all, its so run down its ridiculous. The bathrooms are absolutely disgusting. I believe the other person about a staph infection...seriously. I could barely see the movie the screen was so dull, and this was after it got dark out. There was a lot of idiot teenagers there, running around during the movie, yelling/swearing or otherwise being completely obnoxious the entire time with NO respect for anyone else actually trying to watch the movie. I thought to myself, "Why would these people pay $25 to come here and do everything BUT watch the movie?" I didnt go to the snack bar, but I dont have high hopes for that, either. The only thing this place has going for it is that its a drive in- its cool to watch a movie outside by your car. Other than that, everything else sucks. Unless your some moron 16 year old with all your friends, then youll have a good time! You wont be watching the movie. But hey!
In brief: an okay way to see first run movies on the cheap. The food at the concession stand is actually pretty good - the jalapeno poppers and mozzarella sticks are especially worth a try. Dont let the fountain drink machine fool you, they only had off-brand cans of soda... similarly dont expect the advertised soft serve ice cream as only a small selection of bars were available. The field wasnt mowed and some of the poles still had electrical wires sticking out from the old audio system. There didnt seem to be any rules enforced... people smoking and drinking openly. Once the movies got going, the sound and picture was just about as good as any other drive-in. A mixed bag depending on what you are looking for. Its a pretty chill place and easy to make a nice night for a group of folks to enjoy the movie in a more relaxed atmosphere than a theater.
There could have been a lot more offered for food. Ive never been to another drive-in theatre so I dont know what else they could offer. As far as I can tell, they have two screens, and spots for parking. The ground isnt flat. Theres some grass on some spots. Consider that when bringing something to lay down on. Also consider bringing a hand radio so that your car doesnt die or so that you can hear the movie (you might not be able to if youre laying on the ground and your car is running).
The bathrooms are basic and old. The snack shack is basic but adequate and not too expensive. The best part is two first run movies for $25.00 a car load. So pack as many people, chairs, blankets and food as you can in one car and get a great deal to see two new release movies. The screens and the sound are very good. We will continue to go every year for as long as its open. We love it!!
The only problem I had with Leicester drive in is they make a big deal about buying from the concession stand, but they dont keep the concession stand stocked. I went last Sunday and they had NO FRENCH FRIES AND NO CRAB CAKES. The food they had was good just really disappointed they were out of fries and crab cakes.
Great fun for the family. We have been going for about 10 years. Its not very expensive, you watch two movies outdoors. sure you have to get past the dirt and mosquitoes which we have no issues with. We bring food, the concessions arent great and are expensive for what you get.
way better then paying individually at a movie theater it has 3 screens but they dont use them all every showing. Alot of space. The concession stand could be better. There instant coffee isnt that good and they sell wal-mart brand soda cans well over priced.
Started coming here June 2012 and it has gone some what down hill. The Snack Bar is barely average at best. The bathrooms are run down and in need of some serious help. The staff is very friendly and the price still beats going to a theater.

Experience is great. Prices for the movies are great, but prices for the food are way too outrageous. If they would only spray for bugs to keep the mosquitos down, it would be a lot better of an experience.
I love this place......state of the art cameras, nice retro experience, and the best deal ever. I will be there every weekend through the summer. The staff is awesome too! Its well worth my 40 mile drive.
A a little run-down, but clean and theyre making improvements (new digital projection, at least on screen 2). The screens are small, so get there early for a good spot.
Todd and I has gone there for years now.Its been there for years. Great movies to see! They updated the screen to digital.Now you can see everything.AWSOME!!!!!!!!

The bathrooms are inhumane. Youll probably get a staph infection using them. The owners clearly are too old to care any longer. Just go to Rustic or Mendon instead
My kids were able to grow up going to the drive-in here. Priceless. Im grateful for their dedication to remaining open. It really has been a labor of love.

This is an old school experience that is incredibly affordable, and the addition of a digital projector ups the movie quality to match that of any theater.

double feature rocks. price rocks. doesnt get too crowded. snack bar and bathrooms leave a lot to be desired. but a really good time otherwise.
Please do something about the protruding rocks and massive dips. You might need to visit a mechanic after a night at this drive in.
They need to control the patrons and leaving their headlights on. Makes it hard to see the screen with headlights in your face.
Up to 6 movies playing each night so if you dont like your options at one screen you can always park at another.
Fun place to see movie and be outside at the same time. Family friendly atmosphere, without being kid crazed.
Still a great place to visit ,and cant beat the price, even if the only real good thing the they offer is
3 screens. Great movie line ups. Not many drive-ins left. Trying to support so it never goes away
...nice entrance during the sunny day...a full of potentials to change up its image...
Always clean, great atmosphere, one of the things I look forward to every summer.

not so great bathrooms..but nonetheless...affordable night out w/the family .
Nothing like a double feature in the fresh air. Great price for a car full.
Old and run down but still gives a classic drive in experience
Old fashioned drive in. Lots of fun but bring the bug spray!
I wish there was a 0 star-rating because this is just no.
One of the few remaining drive ins in Massachusetts.
Awesome place to go, and a very fun time !
Great fun. Two movies at 25 bucks a car.
Drive in with newer movies. Great
$25. Screen great! Sound great!
good for a family time
Family loved it
