Name Becky's

We do hope to have horror movies for Halloween this year, as long as the weather is still nice. We can't do the corn maze, however, because we simply don't have the corn. A corn maze takes months of planning and work - much of the planning needs to be done before the growing season. All of the planning, farming, and maintenance required to create a corn maze is very expensive. On top of this, the response simply hasn't been strong enough to merit the large investment that is required to do another corn maze.

Name Becky's

We have played some more adult-oriented films this year, like The Hangover, Star Trek, The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3, Drag Me To Hell, Terminator Salvation, Angels & Demons, I Love You, Man, Knowing, Taken, and Fast &amp; Furious. We try to get the movie that most people want to see, and if that movie isn't available, we try to get the next movie that people want to see. Sometimes it's a movie for adults and sometimes it's a movie for kids. Right now the movies are more for kids (which is typical for summer - after all, it is the summertime, and kids are off from school). Usually in August and September is when the more adult-oriented movies start coming out. We hope to get some action movies and some horror movies in the next month or so. By the end of the season, we hope to have shown a wide array of movies that pleased everyone.

Name Becky's

The business of selecting movies isn't as simple as it may seem. It all depends on films that are available, and it is even trickier when selecting a second feature. When we get second features, we need to deal with the film companies that provide them, and the second feature is usually included as a package with the first feature. We pay a large percentage of our ticket sales to the film companies, and if we were ever to get two new movies and show them together, we would be paying more than 100% of our ticket sales to the film companies. This is why we play a new movie with an older movie as the second feature. So, when we select a second feature, it is either a package from a film company, or we show a second feature that we can obtain at a low percentage (as in, a movie that we have played for a few weeks already). This year especially, the pickin's been slim as far as film availability (Remember the writer's strike a couple years ago - this is the result). We would love to be able to show a new movie every week, but we simply can't because it all depends on the contracts we can sign with film companies. There are some promising films coming out in the next month that we hope to get, and there are some other second-run films we haven't shown yet that we hope to show as second features. Please don't count us out yet. :)

YA this halloween when you show the horror movies, get the classics, like friday the 13th, NMOES, night of living dead, or how about the rocky horror picture show now any of those will be great, but make them classics and better than the ones you showed last year

We would love to get old classics like that, but it's not as simple as buying a DVD. In order to play one of these, we would need to find a copy on 35mm film, which are extremely hard to find. We have tried in the past, but we could never get a hold of an old vintage 35mm copy. We will keep trying and hopefully one day we can get our hands on something good.

I had a good time thursday night of July 9th, 2009. Was watching Transformers. Came with my sister, her boyfriend and two kids. This was my second time coming to Becky's Drive In. Hard for me to come. Because I do not drive. I got the blue and clear Becky's mug and now I got the colorful mug. It is really cool to come to Becky's Drive In. Better then being at the indoor theatres. Really !!!Yes . . . they have them high tech sound systems. But they do not have what Becky's has. If Becky's was not far. I come every weekend. HAPPY SUMMER TO ALL !!! Bike Mike is always on the air !!!

First time for my 9 and 2 year old at the drive-in, what a great time we had, brought back alot of great memories and the 4th was perfect, the moon above the screen and the fireworks made it a perfect combination...thank you!!

Came to see Transformers & Star Trek and had so much fun. Just the enviroment itself is great. I remember coming here when I was a kid .. Most places closed down over the years, I'm so glad Beckys is still open, its just a great affordable way to have fun with your family. And the funnell cake is the best.. We will be back up next week to see Transformers (again) and The Hangover !!

Name Keith

I agree, it is time to get some different movies. I saw Star Trek there a month ago. No Public Enemies? You guys are still way better than the "junk" that other drive-in plays!!

I was excited when I found out there were still Drive Ins open. I have gone numerous times to Beckys and it brings back great memories of growing up and my dad taking us. Its great because now I get to enjoy and share those moments with my own son and nephews. So I have to drive about an hour to get there, but trust me, I would not trade the experience of being there for anything.

I love Becky's! Did I mention I LOVE BECKY'S? We saw Land of the Lost and Terminator and the kids loved every minute. The best part is that I can bring my 7 month old without having to worry about him crying and disturbing other movie goers and eat funnel cake gallore at the same time : )
