Last went to a drive in as a child so very excited to find Hull's Drive was open when visiting Lexington VA. It did not disappoint.

While traveling in VA, we looked for something to do in the evening. We asked one of the locals, and she mentioned Hull's drive-in. We have never been to a drive-in before, so we were really exited! We learned that this is one of the last non-profit drive-ins in America, and is operated by the community. At first, we thought we might be to old for this, but we had a blast! everything was well organized, the movies were up to date, and for the price of one ticket you are welcome to watch all 3 movies. The sound system was really good and the quality was too! There is a cafeteria there with all the junk food you could think of :) they also had a few people selling toys for the kids. I recommend getting there early, because there is a limited space for the cars, and you don't want to miss it. I'd also recommend to bring a blanket, especially if going with kids, it can get a bit chilly.

If you're too young to remember drive in theatres, you must go to Hulls'. It's one of the last 348 such venues left in the entire USA. Cozy up in your vee hick el and watch the shows; don't forget a trip to the snack bar for all your favorites or for you newbies, your favorites to come.

If you have never been to an authentic drive in movie, then go here.
Great atmosphere, good hot dogs and something you'll remember.

It's cool to attend one of these throwback theaters as of this time Wikipedia says this is one of seven still operating in the U.S. The date however didn't go so well, they didn't start on time because this being the birthday of the theater, then technical difficulties caused an even further delay(start time was advertised as 8:10pm didn't get going until about 9pm). This usually wouldn't be a big deal but, they were doing a 3 movie special(Zootopia, Finding Dori, and Captain America Civil War). If staying on time this would put us around 2AM so we ended up leaving early, oh and some guy not paying attention opened his car door and hit my Corvette door so that just put my wife and I in a bad mood so yeah we left. I'm sure this was an isolated incident and still was an awesome experience. The ticket prices for adults at this time are $7 per person. They have a concession stand and it has decent food at a good price. When staying near go ahead and stop by and participate in some nostalgia.

We do thank you for the great review. We do apologize that the night you came we were running a bit behind schedule. We would have been close to being on time had we not experienced technical difficulties with the projector. Unfortunately that was the major cause to the delays. I'm sorry to hear that your Corvette was hit while you were here. Hopefully there wasn't much damage. We hope that you come back again sometime in the future.
