Sauerbeck Family Drive-In

A great option for family fun this summer is visiting the Sauerbeck Family Drive-In in LaGrange.  This is the drive-in's second year showing movies in Oldham County.  We love the fun and welcoming atmosphere of the drive-in and have always had a great experience each time we have visited.

With social distancing in place, the drive-in has changed a few things about visiting, but for the most part, the experience is the same as before. The Sauerbeck Family Drive-In started online ticket and concession sales that can be done before the movie starts. Parking spaces have been arranged to allow for at least six feet between vehicles. 

We like to find our favorite spot near the front of the parking lot and get set up.  We bring our comfy chairs, blankets and pillows.  Usually, the kids will get cozy in the back of the car and we leave the trunk open for them.  In order to listen to the movies, we always pack our old stereo to conserve our vehicle's battery.  Bug spray is also on our packing list and fun glow stick necklaces or bracelets to add to the experience of outdoor movie watching.

Movie showtimes are always posted on their Facebook page and online.  Admission is for two movies, usually starting around 9:30pm. Admission is only $15 per carload right now as the drive-in is having to show older movies instead of new releases. Our favorite time to visit is on Retro Wednesday where admission is only $10 per carload.

Their concession stand has quite an impressive menu. Visitors can order hot food like hamburgers or pulled pork sandwiches or a sweet treat including Blue Bell Ice Cream. In keeping with safe practices, the drive-in has moved concession sales to online and a walk up (outdoor) table. When we recently visited, we ordered popcorn and drinks online. Once we were ready to pick up our order, we told them our name at the table and they went inside to retrieve everything for us. Another option is for an additional $5, visitors can pay to bring in their own food and drinks. 

The Sauerbeck Family Drive-In has really made our summer fun this year.  We always have a great time watching movies with family and friends.  The facility is clean and has a family-friendly atmosphere. Continue to watch their Facebook page this summer as there are special events and even sponsored free movie nights at times.  Visiting the drive-in is a fun summer memory to make with your family and friends.
