Welcome to the

Silver Moon Drive-In Theatre

Ages 4-9

Ages 10+


Since film companies have postponed major movie release dates, we are showing some of your favorite classic movies. Come see them again… on the big screen, under the stars and in perfect weather. We appreciate your support!

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!

The Silver Moon has two screens usually showing first-run movies – with double features seven nights a week. Listen to the movie through your FM car radio. But don’t get caught without sound! It’s best to bring your own as our rental supply is limited. ($2 and Driver’s License required.)

Come early to pick out your favorite spot! Make yourselves comfortable in the privacy of your own car. If you have a large pick or van, please park to the rear as a courtesy to other patrons.

Load up at the snack bar with your favorite treats (See menu). Your purchases at the snack bar help keep this drive in open and we want to be here for you!

As a courtesy to other patrons, please note:
– 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



Beat the Rush!

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.
