You say people are too concerned with the outside appearance rather than what a person is like on the inside. Aren't you being a hypocrite by just focusing on the appearance of Jessica Simpson. Don't take your kids to it, it's that simple. You wouldn't let your daughter wear those clothes, fine, no one is saying that if you see this movie your children will all of a sudden be turned into skin bearing, high heel wearing teenie boppers. Goodness, it's just a movie. For your children's sake, loosen up.
For all of the angry " family oriented" partents out there......lets all face reality alittle bit......1st of all, have you all checked out the clothing that they make for teens now a days????? You can't find a skirt in the jrs section that covers everything up... the clothing that they make now a days is to make your 14 yr. old look like an 18 year old. even though you think your children are angels....guess what...i bet that when they are with their girlfriends, they are sneaking on that little skirt or skin tight tank top that you do not aprove of. Or do you really think that while they are at the mall they are looking for the shorts that go to their knees and just a plain t-shirt. Just because a movie is comming out that the main star dresses a little skimpy, doesn't mean that your daughter will run out and act just like that person. REMEMBER.... it is your job as a parent to instill in your child growing up to respect themselves. So if you don't have enough trust in your child to dress appropriate, then i guess you failed.....NOT THE ENTERTAINMENT BUISNESS! I am very excited to see the Duke's of Hazard.....as a little girl who watched it growing up, i surely turned out to be a great mother to my THREE children.
Has becky's run Herbie Yet? I really want to take my daughter to see it at a DI because that's how I saw the originals (star and Beth).. Will it be there?
Been going to Becky's since a kid, am now 62, still enjoy it.
Drive-ins are really an American tradition that everyone should experince at LEAST once in their life. Its sooo sad that so many drive ins are closing down (The Star Lite).Thanks 4 staying open so many years you've helped make PA a better place. I was wondering if you guys were going to have a nite this summer where you show old movies like you have in the past. If so,may I recomend "Grease". A great movie that even has a scene at the drive-in,it'll bring everyone back to the "good ol days" THANK YOU!!!
There are often movies played that I am not interested in seeing.. for whatever reason it may be but to say it not appropriate for a drive in is just wrong. Becky's cannot please everyone everytime they show a movie. They show what people might want to see. If its not appropriate for children don't bring them.. or check whats on the other screen maybe something is there that is more appropriate. Becky's is doing an fantastic job keeping the joy of drive-ins alive. I personally am planning to see the Dukes of Hazzard and alot of my family is coming along. Keep up the good work!!
Being from Philadelphia, I never seen a drive-in movie until I made the trip to Becky's more than 5 years ago. The drive-in is an experience and is for everyone, even people like me who chose NOT to have a family. So please stop with the drive-in being a family thing. It's for everyone, and for angry parents who don't like seeing Jessica Simpson in a half shirt, i have 3 words for you... "Get A Life". I grew up in the 1980's watching the TV series Dukes of Hazzard and watched Catherine Bach run around in barley anything. Did it turn me to an evil perverted being? Nope. Besides the point, it's the same basic principal as a radio and a TV. If you don't like what you see or hear, turn it off. Don't ruin everyone else's fun just because you're trying to raise perfect children that will end up in therapy by the time they're 17. If you don't like the movies playing at the drive-in, then don't go, stay at home and watch PAX-TV. I hope Becky's doesn't go the entire family route like a drive-in about 15 miles south on Rt.309, which I will not attend anymore because of their new policy.
I am originally from So. Calif. and I loved going to the drive-in as a kid and teeneager. When I moved to PA I was so happy to find Becky's drive-in. It kept me from being so home sick. Nothing lasts forever, as there are very few drive-ins left in Calif. and throughout the US. Becky's keeps the memories alive, and not just for me. And creates new memories for a new generation, my kids! I just wanted to say thank you. You're doing an awesome job and keeping an American tradition alive and well.
WE LOVE BECKY'S! We have three little girls and going to Becky's is something we all look forward to each year. With the shortage of Drive-ins, we feel so fortunate to have one near us. The food is great, the atmosphere is fun and we leave with a night full of happy memories. Keep up the great work.
This is for the angry parents. I have 2 children too. My children are older, in their teens. I drive almost an hour to get to Becky's. I check the website to see what movies are playing. You do not have to go to the drive-ins once a week if the movies are not appropriate for your kids. There were several times last year I wanted to go, and this year as well, but one of the movies was based towards kids, not something my teens would be interested in. Guess what? We didn't go then. The drive-ins are like anything else, they try to cater to everybody, but everybody can not be happy with what is there all the time. Why should my kids not get to go to the drive-ins to see movies they want because you don't think it is right for your kids? And as far as the clothes in the movie, have you kids ever been to a beach? She has more clothes on in the movie than most people wear on the beach or at pools. And to the owners of Becky's, I think you are all doing a great job. I love it when we do get to come up there. Keep upi the wonderful job. We will definitely keep coming back.
I used to go to Becky's years ago when you had to put the speaker in the car. I decided to take my family last night to see Charlie and the Chocolate factory. My husband had not been to a drive inn since he was little. We packed up chairs and blankets and a cooler filled with hoagies and soda and snacks. My kids were so excited. There was a long line and about 5 cars before us was when I saw the man waving people to keep going that they were filled. I was so sad for my children. The guy waving the cars was so visibly upset for those of us he had to turn away. He kept apologizing as we drove away. based on the pics on your site I think the guy was Dennis Beck. How could I be mad? It was my fault for not going early! I apologized profusely to my babies and they were so good about it telling me it was not my fault and it was ok. Well, the stuff is still packed and we are ready to go!!! We will be there tonight 4 sure. EARLY! look for a silver durango Becky's cause here we come! You guys must do a great job to fill up like that. and to that guy who had to turn us away- your sincerity is bringing us back. It was almost like your drive-inn family was just as important as your immediate family. God Bless! The Gilbert family
We made the 75 mile drive from Center City Philadelphia to Becky's last night as part of a Corvette caravan and had the BEST time. You're doing a great job of maintaining an American entertainment tradition. We came away with souvenir T-shirts and a yearning for more Becky's chili dogs. Good show and kudos for a cool website!

Angry Parents - Why would you bring your child to see a movie that is based on a sitcom that has a half dressed woman in it? Most parents don't have issue with this based on what it is - but if you do - you have liberty to stay at home. I am all for "family oriented" but when your family values step over the normal accepted practice - you need to look at your choices not those of others. Thanks - thats all.
I love the Drive-In experience so much! We come every year and try to see as many movies as we can before the season is over. Becky's is great because they play a wide range of movies that both adults and children can enjoy. I think it is better than just playing children's movies all the time. I also enjoy how Becky's has an end of season movie marathan and sometimes a scary movie treat in October. I didn't get to go last year because it was only one weekend and I was out of town. I look forward to going this year. Everything about the drive-in experience is so much fun. I hope Becky's doesn't close like so many others have. There are only a few drive-in's left and I would hate to be the last generation to experience them. See you soon at Becky's!!
Just to let the person know who selestcs the music, you did a great job! A nice selection and a great varety. [good bands] Also, a great experience at the movies, as always.
There is a reason that Becky's lists the rating of the features showing on their website and sign out front... so that people are aware of the content they are about to view. Becky's also - from a business perspective - needs to appeal to a broad range audience. They are not responsible for the content and quality of films released by studios for viewing at any given time. On another note, Duke's of Hazard is clearly full of inuendo and risque dress. If you've ever seen the previews or the old show you should've expected the antics and dress of Daisy Duke. I've lived by Becky's all 23 years of my life and have been there more times than I can count. I may not always like the movie I see but I love the experience each and every time. You guys do a great job. Thank you for providing the service you do. I can't wait to bring my kids there someday.
After seeing the write up in the recent PA Pursuits magazine about drive-in theaters, and seeing that we had not only one, but two in my area, I was finally able to get to Becky's on Friday, 7/15/05, for my son's 15th birthday. He hadnt been to a drive in since the Flintstone's movie came out...(about 12 years ago?) We picked Becky's over the closer drive-in because Becky's was cheaper, had two screens, and despite being less expensive, Becky's showed double features! What a deal...two first run movies for only $6.00 per person. Anyway, my son, my oldest son, his wife, their 4 year old daughter and myself came up to Becky's to see 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory' and 'War of the Worlds'. We all had a great time. My 15 year old had his portrait drawn for two different pictures, one for me and one for his girlfriend. My granddaughter also sat for her portrait. The only complaint I had was that the snack bar wasnt bigger, to handle the immense demand. Since I am handicapped, I couldnt stand in that long line, so I had to send my sons. We were also able to take home two of those great refillable soda cups with the 'Becky's' logo for souvenirs. All in all, it was a great experience; one we all hope to relive soon. Thank you Becky's, for keeping the drive-in tradition alive!
so you are saying that if someone dresses trashy that they are a bad person. don't judge a book by its cover. and remember what you might think is trashy might not be for someone else. if you don't think the movie is a family movie then don't take your children to see it. as someone else said it's only a movie. your children just as much skin going to the mall.
