Awesome drive in. I drive an hour to attend every other week. This is the only time I attend a theatre. I do not bother with walk ins any longer. This place is clean, well maintained, and has great food and features. The best place to be in the summer, the Capri Drive in in Coldwater Michigan.
Admission this year, 2008 is $8.00 per adult. Still cheaper than the walk ins. !!! and you get 2 movies, its great to attend a double feature in these days of cram them in and get them out,and cram for the next showing.
Please attend this historic wonderful drive in, with a screen that
is 75 ft tall and 150 ft wide. No walk in can claim that.
The presentation is crystal clear and the FM sound in your car is the best.

I think i see the second screen below the big one with the car in front.

I’m confused, the screens look to be 2.35 aspect ratio fixed, yet for movies that are 1.85 – do they crop off the tops and bottoms to fill the entire screen? This looks to be the case of the picture of ‘Monsters University’ framing on their facebook page.
