Catch modern movies in an old school double feature at the Showboat Drive-In in Hockley, ten minutes west of Tomball in Northwest Houston.

Open every weekend Friday through Sunday, the beloved drive-in movie theater  hosts new release films in an outdoor double feature format that takes you back and introduces the kids to a new moviegoing experience through an age-old tradition.

Tune your dial to the FM radio movie soundtrack courtesy of Showboat, aim your gaze directly at the screen with slight ramps, or even pull out the lawn chairs to watch the film from outside your vehicle.

Theater Amenities

A central snack bar and concession stand offers all popcorn, candy, soft drinks and burgers. Like everything else at the Showboat Drive-In in Hockley, the Snack Bar is cash only, but you will find an ATM on the premises. Click here for more information.

Kids and families can make good use of the swing set and playground located beneath the big screen. Everyone is welcome to swing or play before the films start and during the show.
