Since 1947, Ceres Drive-In has been the premier source for family movie entertainment in the valley.

Our Drive-In Cinema is the only real drive-in theater between Madera and Sacramento. Featuring a massive 100-foot screen, new movies, paved lot, and angled spots; our location is the premier destination for outdoor movies in the valley.


Ceres Cruise In offers the opportunity to watch movies with the entire family from the comfort of your own car—or feel free to bring a blanket and find a place to lay under the stars. Get cozy, get comfortable, and have some fun at the drive-in!
