This just in from the Wichita Big Screen Facebook group: Another carload night is scheduled at the Starlite Drive In.
On Friday the 13th and Saturday the 14th of September, they’ll be showing the Jason trilogy at the drive in, and admission is just $13 per carload! (Find more upcoming scary movies here.)
Normally you can get tickets to the Starlite online, but for this special pricing night you will get them at the box office.

And here’s a trailer for the event:
Head over to the Starlite Drive In website to see what’s playing other nights this week.
The new ownership of the Starlite Drive In in Wichita actually lowered the per person ticket prices. It is definitely the best movie deal in town (not to mention a great family fun event). The experience of going to a drive-in movie is something that many cities don’t offer.
Movie goers can bring lawn chairs to sit outside in nice weather (as long as you aren’t taking up a second parking spot). And well-behaved pets on leashes are welcome.
Starlite Drive In Prices
The Starlite’s per-person pricing is more affordable than ever – especially considering that you get two or three movies. For adults (ages 12+), the per-person price is $7; kids ages 3-11 are just $3; kids under 3 years get in free.
But carload pricing at $14 per carload is always fun too, because you get to play “clown car” with all your family and friends! 😀
And the snack shop offers very reasonably priced refreshments.
Do consider purchasing food from the snack shop during your visit. The Starlite’s owner told me that film studios can take up to 80% of box office proceeds, so strong support of the snack bar is how they stay open.
