We went to the Higgins Moonlite Drive-In for the first time a few weeks ago.
It’s located in Woodbury, Tennessee (just east of Murfreesboro).
Following is our review of the Moonlite Drive-in.
Compare this to our reviews of other drive-ins near Nashville:
We drove from Spring Hill through Murfreesboro to Woodbury on Highway 70S. It was a nice drive and the area appeared to be safe and clean.
Immediately before the Drive-in’s entrance is the Woodbury Police Station. Next to that is a gas station / convenience store — which is handy if you want any last-minute snacks.
Even though they say you can’t bring any outside food in, we did. We also bought a bunch of stuff at the concession stand. (More on that in a minute.)
The ticket prices were very reasonable, especially for 2 movies! Tickets are $6 for adults and $4 for kids age 5 and up.
Their website says no pets allowed. But on the printed flier they give you when you come in, it says that all pets must be on a leash at all times. Which is nice, because we like to take our dog to the drive-in sometimes. (He just sits in the back of the Jeep and watches all the people.)
What Are The Movie Screens Like?
As soon as you enter, you’re supposed to tell them which movie(s) you’re there to see (each screen has a double-feature).
That makes it seem like you’re expected to remain at one screen all night. But we saw lots of people move their vehicles from one screen to the other during the intermission. It’s not hectic, loud, or confusing, so I really don’t think they mind.
The 2 screens aren’t the biggest, but they suffice. Your best bet is to get their early and park in the 2nd or 3rd row right in the middle. (That’s what we did, and the view was fine.)
What’s The Food Like?
In fact, I would rate their concession stand / restroom (it’s all in the same building) as the best we’ve ever seen at a drive-in movie theater! It was so clean (even the restrooms), and they had a lot of staff working the counter to make ordering go faster.
Everyone was really friendly and helpful. And the food was delish.
The popcorn was fresh and tasty. The ice cream cones were huge scoops of hand-dipped ice cream in a waffle coan. The personal pan pizzas looked amazing. (I have to say, the Icee drinks were a bummer though… all air & no soda.)
The prices for all of the things they sold at the concession stand seemed very reasonable!

I like to help people find unique ways to do things in order to save time & money — so I write about “outside the box” ideas that most wouldn’t think of. As a lifelong dog owner, I often share my best tips for living with and training dogs. I worked in Higher Ed over 10 years before switching gears to pursue activities that I’m truly passionate about. I’ve worked at a vet, in a photo lab, and at a zoo — to name a few. I enjoy the outdoors via bicycle, motorcycle, Jeep, or RV.
