During a recent visit, Ryan Chambers played a game of catch with his son, Christopher, before sunset and the start of the movies.
Christopher, 8, said he loves going to the drive-in.
"We can see the movies here before they come out on DVDs," he said. "We can sit in the car and chill with the family and sometimes, with friends.”
Christopher's mother, Kim, said she remembers her folks taking her to the Earlville movies.
"Coming here always reminds me of my childhood.”
A few speaker poles down the lane, Chris and Amber Evans, of Spring Valley, watched their children, Trinitee, Addison and Jackson run up and down the green lanes in a race in front of the giant screen.
"My parents brought me here when I was a kid," Amber said, "so my husband and I always to come to Earlville for family adventures. I'm sure our kids will remember being here like I do with my folks.”
