“We had a great time at the drive-in! Nice big screen and lots of food/snack options to choose from.”
“Great place to watch movies, especially on dates. Real good concession prices, very friendly staff, they will even jumpstart your car after it dies from watching the movie too long. Very cheap tickets, and they have tons of movies for sale. Even new ones for as little as $5. They also have some purchasable items such as movie stickers and collectibles. Great place, highly recommended.”
“Peter and his son at 1000 Islands Drive In were truly amazing and attentive to my needs as a medically at risk person. They have a really wide assortment of theatre goodies from popcorn, soda and chocolate to fries, ice cream and other treats. They also have a massive selection of rentals - perfect for the cottage in the summer months. You can also rent out their indoor theatre which seats by my account 80 for a private event. Thank you 1000 Islands cinema. I will be back.”
Yes, dogs are welcome. The Drive-In just asks that all dogs be leashed when they are out of the car and to pick up after them.
The movies start at different times throughout the season. The first film typically starts around sunset.
The Drive-In strongly recommends you buying your snacks from its snack bar. No profit is made off movie tickets. On average, more than 60 per cent of the movie ticket sales go back to the film’s studio (Disney, Universal, etc.). The rest goes to the staff, hydro, etc.
