Summary: Great Place for the Right Price Pro: Cheap tickets and food, friendly employees and people, themed eating area. Con: Older adults can be smoking in the back for weary parents. Not all that noticeable though. Review: I went here about a month ago for their 4th of July promo event and I loved every minute of it. The best part about this drive-in compared to others is you can stay the night if you bring your own camping tent/mobile home. It costs extra ($10/vehicle) but the ability to watch all the movies (2 or 3 for $10, what a steal!), buy cheap food, see a breath taking sunset (seriously, everyone stops and takes photos), and relax makes it a great deal to me. The employees are wonderful. They are friendly, helpful and theme the food area with props from the movies playing that night. Id definitely check out this place if youre in the Poconos/Jim Thorpe area. Tip: If youre new to the drive in theater, make sure you bring your own radio or plan to have your car on to listen to the movies. You can only hear the movie if you have access to FM radio. and bug spray, dont forget the bug spray...
Just came back home from a weekend of ..being out in the final frontier.. The Mahoning is one of those really rare gems on the Google Map. Yes, stay for the awesome cult classic/vintage movie marathons! Bring your tents, bug spray and enjoy the drive in the way its supposed to be enjoyed...Oh, the stories The Mahoning Drive-In could tell. The line up is always one of well cultivated REAL Reel to Reel movies!! A very large and awesome collection of ever rotating visuals can be witnessed. Some of the most ultra friendly & respectful movie buffs ..or if you will time and space travelers from out of state brimming with film trivia you will find (all depending on the films being shown is whos going to show up) There the amazing human lifeforms that keep this place going, (while some could be mistaken as aliens ..seriously, I think they run around and shed their skin ..when the clock hits a certain time....) Yet none of that, is in comparison to the popcorn and now (yes, Seriously, it was voted on..)Capts Now Legendary French Fries.. This place is just awesome. See ya next time!
The Mahoning Drive-In is fantastic for a date, a family outing, or just a taste of something classic. The movies are great and the experience is super unique. You wont regret it! The snack bar serves great food at unbelievable prices. You wont find the outlandish prices of standard movie theaters, instead youve got amazing fries, burgers and corndogs (yes CORNDOGS!!!) for about $3 each! The prices are just as classic as the experience. On top of all that dogs are allowed (as long as they are fairly quiet) and on Friday and Saturdays you can even spend the night camping right on the grounds. I cant recommend this place enough, and I look forward to seeing countless movies there in the future!
This place is exactly what I had hoped for. A very classic drive-in experience, complete with snacks and great hard-to-find films. The staff was welcoming and fun (Bigfoot even came to visit for the creature feature weekend I attended) and they clearly know their stuff. Lots of fun goodies inside including some gem VHS tapes for donation. The mounds in the lot allow nice viewing even from the back. There is also camping, which I will DEFINITELY be enjoying next year. My one and only complaint is the lack of hot water in the (womens) bathroom. Not a deal breaker by any means, but I was a little surprised lol.
I gave this place 5 stars until my most recent visit... Keep in mind that I LOVE this drive in.... But I do not like that they have the fire barrel after the movies solely for the reason that by the time the movies are done its very late, and people gather at the fire and are quite loud. So if you are camping and want to get any sleep at all, DO NOT set up camp by the fire barrel (to the right of the snack shack). You will be kept awake until 4 in the morning by loud people who are seemingly unaware that there are people all around them who are trying to sleep.
The Mahoning Drive-In is my happy place. Friendly, eclectic atmosphere with a constantly changing lineup of fantastic films. The snack bars prices cannot be beat, as mentioned in other reviews. Its a unique environment with a great fan base. For $10 extra, youre allowed to camp overnight. If youve never been here, I urge you to make the drive, bring the family, and enjoy a night at the drive-in like no other. Check their Facebook page to see what films are playing next.
Great prices and they are showing movies you dont get to see in the theater. The events they hold are top notch and for $10 a car you can camp there. The food is simple, tasty and affordable. The entire staff goes above and beyond to make sure every theater goer has the best possible experience. We drive 2 hours to go there and know other people who travel over 12 hours to support this theater. Do yourself a favor and go check it out!
The only Drive-In Theatre of its kind in the world, showing exclusively vintage drive-in rarities including vintage horror and sci-fi on one of the last remaining mammoth screens in the Drive-In Theatre industry. Nestled deep in the seclusion of the Pocono Mountains gives it that additional special effect to some late night flicks. Friendly staff and great snacks. Highly recommend this Drive-In!!
They are still going and getting stronger. They only play retro movies now all on 35 mm film! Lots of movie events and camping every Friday and Saturday night for only $10 a car load. Concession food is excellent and does not cost a fortune. Biggest screen in the area and every spot is a great spot to park! Friendly, leashed dogs are welcome! Spread the word!
From April to October, this is the place to be every Friday and Saturday night. Awesome movie selections, beautiful surroundings, kind and dedicated staff, cheap and tasty snacks made fresh, and a customer base with a real love for the place. These things combine to make the Mahoning Drive-in Theater a little slice of heaven on earth.
Quality place. My first drive in theatre. 87.3fm so bring a radio so you dont have to rely on your car. Foods served here: popcorn for $2, fries, drinks (no alcohol), candy, pizza, basic nachos and a few other things...all extremely cheap. Fun funky place to walk around. Recommended and probably will be back at some point.
By far the best drive in movie theatre Ive been to. The staff are friendly and the concession lines arent long. The best part is you can actually go camping. If youre looking for a great experience with some classic charm, then I highly recommend this place.

This drive in is great. Prices are great and the atmosphere is always so family friendly. I think the only problem would have to be the bathrooms. The stalls are so small that your knees are bumping against the door.
Friendly atmosphere. Value for your money. Thoughtful pairing of double features. Snacks and drinks reasonable. For film buffs and vinyl collectors , a selection available for a small donation. Love this drive-in
WHY DOES IT SAY ITS CLOSED?!!? This place is DEFFIENTLY OPEN!!! All original 35mm reel to reel retro films, Great admission price, inexpensive food and refreshments. New friendly, film loving management staff.
