Sitting still in your car has never been so entertaining…

The last movie I saw at a drive-in theater was Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey. I remember thinking that I preferred the first one and that their journey was kind of bogus (but not in the way they intended). The drive-in closed and I was forced to go back to watching movies indoors where my dog wasn’t welcome.

Until now.

There’s a drive-in out in Hockley (near Tomball, five minutes east of 290 on FM 2920) called The Showboat Drive-In Theater. Adults can watch a double feature for only $5 (tickets are $4 for kids 2-12, and free for kids under 2). Better still, the movie sound comes from your own car radio, instead of those rickety old speakers that I remember from my youth!

June 16 – June 22
X-Men: The Last Stand
(First movie starts at dusk.)

Coming soon: Grease!

Because of a previous post of mine about a new dining-during-movie theater in Copperfield, I now officially have two theaters to go inspect and report back on. Full reviews of both coming very soon, I promise.

    Who in their right mind wants to sit in a hot car and watch a movie? I’d much rather watch a movie in an air-conditioned place than sweat my balls off in a hot car during the Summertime in Houston.

    Luckily, they’re open for more than just the summer months.

    Thanks for the great information. I am going to pass this on to my dog group. We are always trying to find new things to do with our dogs in and around Houston.

    I’m afraid I have to beat you to the punch on the Studio Movie Grille review.
