I really hate to write this review , because drive ins are great and they are dying out. but This place has really went downhill. they will practically search your vehicle and confiscate any and all drinks or food. the prices have risen every year . and if you own a suv or truck do not go here you will be made to park all the way in the back very far from the screen. . it was once a great place but ever since they have changed ownership it really really sucks. hey run it like a communist gulag. do not waste your hard earned money with these a holes. last time i went there we were in a crossover suv and was told i must park all the way in the back and that they had to confiscate our water bottles. I told them to give me my money back and we had some choice words. will never go back until they change policies or owners.read more

Pricey but worth it. Should still have the option to pay for a food permit. Because I'm always going to buy a pizza and popcorn anywayread more

5 Mile Drive-in is a great family experience. It's hard to believe there are only 9 Drive-in Movie Theaters left in Michigan where at one time we had over 150 of these great family venues. Great place to take the family and very reasonable pricing. I would highly recommend this experience.read more

Neat old Drive-In movies, but the way they act about you having food or drinks in your car is a bit ridiculous. They saw a water bottle, that was almost empty, in our drink holder, and "had to confiscate" it. If it wasn't for that, they would get 4 stars, because the screen is a bit dark, and it's hard to see dark scenes in the movies. I understand that they want you to buy from their snack bar, but you shouldn't be made to feel like a criminal if you have a candy bar or a can of coke in your vehicle.read more
