Stars and Stripes Drive In Theatre, New Braunfels

Theater · Concert / Show
Our drive-in story goes all the way back to 1948 when my grandfather started the Sky-Vue Drive-In Theatre in Lamesa, TX. I grew up hearing great stories about the people, the events, and the food that made this small west Texas business the pride of the town. While experiencing my first drive-in movie at the Sky-Vue in June of 2002, I felt a calling to share this slice of Americana.

In January of 2003 we purchased a Lubbock cotton farm, and on August 21st Stars & Stripes Drive-In Theatre started showing double-features and serving Rockin' Eats TM. After celebrating our ten year anniversary, we bought a farm just outside of New Braunfels to serve another incredible community as well as central Texas.

Many incredible people have believed in our vision of a modern, family-friendly drive-in theatre experience. We are forever grateful for the patronage and support. We consider it an honor to help reclaim this unique part of American history and to serve you a better way to watch a movie. Whether you want to load up the family wagon, hang out with friends, or plan a date under the stars, we invite you to enjoy making lasting memories with us.

  • This is a great place to go. My wife and I enjoyed the nice breeze and the outdoor movie. It's great to sit or lie back and watch a movie outside. The hotdogs and funnel cake were delicious too. This place is awesome. The parking spot was big and there wasn't a huge crowd for Sunday night. The people coming into the second movie could have turned off their lights before flashing the screen, but some people are just inconsiderate. That's nothing against the theater.
  • Love the environment! Great price! I’m very happy they are dog friendly. They serve good food or if you wanna picnic with a cooler it’s all good! Bring your lawn chairs and a blanket or just sit back in your car and enjoy the show!
