Welcome to the

Silver Moon Drive-In Theatre

Ages 4-9

Ages 10+

Welcome to the Silver Moon Drive-In Theatre. We’ve been in Lakeland, Florida for more than 70 years. In fact, we are the last drive-in theatre in Polk County, but we are here to stay!

** NO loud diesel engines allowed during the movie no diesel allowed with harsh  fumes

** No open flames or grills of any kind

**No saving spaces or taking up parking spaces with chairs (You may place chairs in front of your own vehicle)

**Large vehicles will be parked in the back rows (small cars parked in the back rows may have large trucks in front of them and are encouraged to move to mid field and up)

**When backed in to a spot no rear lift gate / hatch may be lifted if it blocks the view of other guest

The Silver Moon has two screens usually showing first-run movies. Each screen has a double feature seven nights a week. You’ll enjoy listening to the movie through your FM car radio, but we also have in-car speakers available on some rows. Large pick-ups and vans are encouraged to park to the rear as a courtesy to other patrons.

Come early and pick out your favorite spot! Load up at the snack bar with your favorite treats (See menu). Make yourselves comfortable in the privacy of your own car. Every night is a great night for the drive-in!

Beat the Rush!

Due to the popularity of brand-new, first-run movies, we strongly suggest  you come well before showtime. This will allow you to avoid traffic and find a better parking spot. We appreciate your understanding of the situation.
