However, a fantastic option is the Silver Moon Drive In Theater in Lakeland FL. If you have never had the experience of going to a drive in theater you are in for a treat.
One of the great things about Silver Moon Drive In Theater is the cost. One dollar for kids ages four to nine and four dollars for all those ages ten and over. The tickets are for entry into the theater and there is a double feature on both screens sometimes a triple if you really want to enjoy a late night out. Most of the movies The Silver Moon shows are newer releases while also playing some of the classics. There are two different screens to choose from and each screen has a different movie. Movie goers can choose to either use their own car radio to tune into the movies or chose to use the in car speakers the theater offers for your convenience. They also offer great concessions including the favorites of pizza, popcorn, and candy.
