Please join us on the Riverside Drive In Theatre's FACEBOOK Page HERE and make sure to tell us that you are going and keep the coversation going about Drive-In Super Monster-Rama!


Now in our 8th Annual Year! The ultimate trip back in time to the grand old days of drive-in cinema is back! DRIVE-IN SUPER MONSTER-RAMA is two nights of classic horror and science fiction 35mm screenings presented at an authentic, hospitable drive-in movie theater. There will be two big shows on two consecutive nights which will start at dusk and go on until really late into the night! This is the seventh year in a row that we are hosting such an event, so we encourage drive-in movie fanatics from all parts of the country to come out and experience something you'll never forget! What could be better than a weekend getaway topped off with two nights of classic monster movies on the big outdoor screen?

We realize that everything is so expensive these days, but admission is (still) only $10 a person each night! Plus, children 12 and under are free with parent or adult guardian (parental guidance is of course recommended, but this is in case you want to put the little tykes to sleep in the backseat instead of hiring a babysitter). How can you beat that? The Riverside's concession stand is loaded with reasonably priced goodies that patrons continue to rave about, including hot foods, hot and cold drinks, candy, popcorn and much, much more! Their concession stand always gets compliments, and it's one of the things that keeps fans of this event wanting to come back for more year after year.

We guarantee that this will most likely be your only chance to see so many of these type of films on the drive-in screen all in one big weekend, so plan your vacation now! You won't be sorry!
