Enjoyed the experience, thanks. But Shankweilers seems to only play "family" films. Certainly, cornering the children's market is key to turning the honest dollar, but I argue that by turning the place into a children's entertainment center, you are changing the dynamics of what the drive-in experience once was. It becomes a parody. Likely, I will return regardless, but would it be financial suicide to play an R-rated flick every once in a while?

Reply: First of all, you mention a "Family" oriented establishment and then mention a "Children's" establishment. You were right the first time. Shankweiler's is and will always be aimed at "Family" Entertainment that is "Children" friendly. We will occasionally show (PG-13) rated films that we feel are commercially and/or family acceptable.
As far as taking any risks towards other films, perhaps that is one of the reasons that there are ONLY 400 Drive-In Theatres left in the United States when once there were over 4000. I have been in this business for over 37 years and I have seen the demise of 12 other Drive-Ins in the Lehigh Valley area.

We just discovered this gem of a place! What a fabulous time our family had. We are only sorry that we didn't learn of it at the beginning of the summer. We are already making plans with our family friends to come up next summer! We can't wait!

We are so excited to find out that there is a drive-in within driving distance. We usually take our young children to the one in Danville, Pa when we are up there for a visit to Knoebels. They are so excited to find out that we are actually going to one not too far from where they live. It should be real treat for them.

I really love this drive-in! The only problem is that they don't allow small, well-trained dogs. I still go to some movies there, but it makes me disappointed that my favorite companion can not come.

Reply: Owners Note: We do not permit any animals since all the owners of good, well trained animals, appear to take advantage of our generosity. I do not know where animal owners think it is their given right to bring their beloved animals to our establishment just for us to have to clean up after them.

We just happened to be driving through from visiting some boyhood memories of my husband's in McAdoo, Pa. Imagine our surprise when we saw the drive-in still was thriving. Although it is the end of the season we will definitely watch your website and come back next spring!!

Nice to see a drive in that can stay alive and still manage to keep prices reasonable. My wife and 2 kids get together with another couple with kids and it makes a nice night.
thank you.

I've been visiting Shankweiler's for the past few years with a good friend. Since we now live far from each other the long drive gives us great time to catch up before the show. This place is truly a gem and undoubtedly wothy of an hour drive or more!

We live close by the drive in. So we thought we take our 3year old to see a movie(her first movie). We realized people come far away just to see a movie. And that we are so lucky to have you in our back yard. thank you for a wonderful family outing and we will visit agian:
