Anyone interested in catching a drive-in movie? showboatdrivein.com

The Showboat Drive In DOUBLE Feature Movies

GATES OPEN AT 6:00 PM

1ST FEATURES BEGIN AT 8:00 PM

CASH ONLY, NO CREDIT CARDS ACCEPTED

There is a Concession Stand with Hotdogs, popcorn, burgers...and other fast foods and desserts.

This location is in FAR North of Harris County.

For those that want to Carpool in NW Houston, we are meeting at my place, 9906 Jockey Club Dr. 77065 and leaving at 5:15pm.

The date was changed from Friday to Saturday to avoid Friday traffic.

For those that are coming from Sugarland, It may take 45 minutes to 1 hour to get there.  THIS is a Very Busy Place, and with the nice weather, is expected to be SOLD OUT quickly.   So the earlier you can arrive to save some spots the better.

 

You can call or text me, when you are nearby, so we can coordinate where you can park at.  [masked]

 

The Action Movies are GI Joe Retaliation and Olympus Has Fallen

The Comedy Movies are the Croods and Oz, The Great and Powerful

(I prefer comedy but we can take a poll here to see what the group vote is)

I custom built my car just for this drive in :)  Its great to use all the cool 007 gadgets finally!!!

You may want to bring some games, or frisbee or something to do, while we wait for the movies to start...and you may consider foldable chairs, blankets or pillows to have options when you get there.

So what do you want see?  Comedy Movies or Action Movies??? VOTE Now :)

    So I think according to the poll.. Action movies is what we're seeing. And not comedies... So who all is going to go... And who is carpooling?

    • David

      Diane, Nicky, I'll volunteer from Sugar Land. It'd be 6:15ish-1:00ish in a compact car with just enough trunk room for 3-4 camp chairs. Anyone wanna bring a boom box?

      April 2, 2013

  • Nicky

    Pls let me know if anyone will be leaving from sugarland

    I'm Near 290 and FM 1960. We could do a car pooling group near Willowbrook Mall. The drive in Has double feature For only 5 bucks!!!

    April 1, 2013

  • Krystal

    My husband has other plans

    March 29, 2013

  • Mary Lynn P.

    Possibility that we can call ahead and see if we can reserve something. I will give them a call and find out.

    March 21, 2013

    • Rich C.

      I've called them in the past they don't reserve its first come first serve

      March 27, 2013

  • Mary Lynn P.

    Sounds like a lot of fun. I'm game!

    March 21, 2013

  • Rich C.

    Oops. There was no date listed..so I thought I could suggest one.. but it looks like it changed the official date too. and I can't undo it.. So, whoever thought of this. can you change the date?

    FYI, I have a Super Great Sound System in my car and Minivan, that really makes the drive in movie, turn into a Live Symphony of Super Surround Sound :)

    For those that are interested, would April 5th be good? Getting there early is best...carpool maybe? Perhaps we can do a picnic or something?? or take over a small section? Gates open up early so folks can get setup before dusk. some bring lawn chairs, Its halfway in between Tomball and 290 on FM 2920. Anybody interested??

    We have done it (family and friends) and when it's later in the year cooler is much better because the sun goes down much earlier (this summer we didn't get home until 3 am because the first movie didn't start until 9 pm with previews and intermission!). Bus wouldn't be a good way, in my opinion, as you have to be able to see the screen out of the front unless you are willing to sit outside in the cold for two movies. I would suggest, for a meet-up, to coordinate to meet up there (and maybe even plan ahead with the location) to get four cars up there to block off a section for the group and have the others 'fill-in' the blocked area with the plan for everyone to be there by a certain time?

    Maybe we should rent a bus. How else would a meet-up work at a drive-in???????

    I'm totally interested, my car seat is way better than any movie theater seat. If you traveling from the west side though(I-10/hwy6 area), welcome to catch a ride with me, got room for 5 but back seat view would be pretty blocked(besides the middle of course.)

      The Showboat is a long drive. Unless you are going as a couple and want some privacy, carpooling is a great idea!

      January 16, 2013

  • Kathy

    Tim, you have a good point, how do we meet up at a drive in?

    January 8, 2013

  • Chrystal w.

    If you sign up with Groupon.com you can get discounted tickets to the Showboat Drive-in. For $10 two people can gain entry and watch a double feature and you also get a large popcorn and two medium drinks!

    So . . . just how does a 'meetup' work at a drive-in? Do we all just park near each other???
