BBQ's are NOT permited. We ask that you be considerate of your fellow drive-in patrons and restrict your BBQ'ing to your own backyard.

The Starlight encourages people to come and have a great night out, but please support our concession and keep us here for years to come. We work very hard at keeping our concession prices low & your continued support will keep them there.

My car has daytime running lights. What should I do?
Most daytime running lights will turn off when you engage emergency brake. Shut off your vehicle, set the emergency parking brake, then turn your vehicle back on. Before the movie starts, please do a "test" to ensure that it works, so that your lights don't come on during the movie if you start your car.

Will the drive-in kill my battery? And if so, what do I do?
Leaving your radio on should not kill your battery. Start your car at intermission to be sure its still alive. In the event that it does die, we have a booster pack in the concession and we'll be happy to give you a boost.

It'salmost a year too late, but wanted to send an email to say a huge THANK YOU for a great experience last summer. For years..and years...and years—I’ve been wanting to have the North American Drive In cinema experience; something the weather simply does not allow in the UK-ever! (though it has been unusually hot this year) but it’s never happened. I tried to get my wife to go on trips to North America....but always a no go. But last year my daughters were old enough and enthusiastic enough to sway my wife’s opinion so we made the drive from the Grandparents in Kelowna to your place and it was BRILLIANT!!! We watched the emoji movie and my daughters loved the whole experience so much that we stayed for Spider-Man Homecoming (so I was beyond thrilled)! The atmosphere—the staff—the service---the value for money for food (I had no idea $16 could go sooooo far!!! Cinemas are usually chastised for poor value but your place is great value---though please do not increase prices...)—everything made for a great experience. The guy in the golf cart who recommended where to park and how to tune in (initially to the 50’s ‘radio’---he said “welcome to my world!!”) set the tone for such a great family night of entertainment that was truly special for the whole family!!! Thank you so much! I think my wife will be much easier to convince this year and I know my daughters are itching to see Ant Man and the Wasp so fingers crossed that’s on when we are over! Many thanks again—and thanks, in advance, for what will no doubt be a great experience this year too!
Many thanks

Hey Folks! We came to the drive in Saturday night and just wanted to say thank you! All the staff was so friendly! From the young lady in the ticket booth, to the gentleman who was guiding traffic, to your concession staff. Everyone was so friendly. This was my daughters first time at the Drive In and she LOVED it!! I also wanted to mention how affordable it was. Your prices to get in and the concession are very muchly appreciated.. Hope all of you have a great summer!

We just wanted express the sincere thanks that someone has the knowledge and the means to open and maintain a Drive in theatre in 2010!! This past weekend we took our kids ages 12 and 20 to see the double feature. To our surprise both of our boys as well as us (mom and dad) completely enjoyed the evening and are planning for the next trip out to Enderby. We came from Westbank to see what all the talk was about, and we were not disappointed!!! We found ourselves talking to and meeting new people, our dog met some new friends as well. We sat under the stars and enjoyed the movie!! What was one of the most surprising things was when we went to the concession. Going in we were thinking that we would be spending a small fortune for popcorn and drinks. . . and yet again to our complete surprise it was less than $15.00, and all was served by the nicest people we have encountered in the service industry in a very long time. Even the gentleman at the debit line up was so happy to have us there and made us feel welcome!!! So keep up the great work and we will be attending many times throughout the summer of 2010. We will be telling anyone and everyone that is willing to hear us that they need to go to the Starlight Drive-In!!! Thank you!!

My name is Shawn Cardinal and I'm emailing you at 2:00 am in the morning because we just got back from a wonderful family night at the Starlight Drive-in. Even though it is a school night we knew we had to take our 8 and 9 year old boys to take in this awesome event thanks to SUN FM and the Starlight Drive In and of course a winning ticket to get us in. We were so excited to get a chance to come out and celebrate the Starlight Drive In's 10th anniversary with the SUN FM crew and all the other lucky contestants that we showed up at 6 pm to ensure we got our usual spot.
We were the 2nd hard core Starlight Drive in fans to show up that early and for that we graciously received two awesome T-shirts from SUN FM which the kids loved. They boys also were excited to get tattoo's and pictures with the fun finder vehicle and Hay Stack. Even though we did not win any of the prizes we had a fun filled night under the stars together as a family surrounded by other families enjoying the awesome night together as well. Our boys enjoyed the movies, cake, goodies and more importantly the atmosphere. I just wanted to send out a huge THANK YOU to you SUN FM and the STARLIGHT DRIVE IN for an much needed and much appreciated family night out. We have been loyal loving STARLIGHT DRIVE IN fans since we move to the Okanagan over 5 years ago and will continue to be as long as the will have us. Great Job guys and HAPPY 10TH SEASON STARLIGHT DRIVE IN. Thanks for giving our family a safe, enjoyable and economical place to enjoy some excellent entertainment....KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK.

I just wanted to send a hearty thank you to Starlight Drive-In for an amazing night last night. My husband and I took our two small children to Starlight last night for their first experience at a drive-in and they LOVED it! How to Train Your Dragon was fabulous! Your facility was well run, clean with friendly staff. I thoroughly enjoy going to the drive-in as I grew up in Langley and went the drive-in all the time in the summers. Thank you for allowing me to create memories for my children that I was fortunate to have with my family. We look forward to coming back again this summer and hoping that our other friends will join us next time. Great job and hoping that you have many more successful years.
