Plan Your Next Trip to the Malta Drive-In Theatre

The Malta Drive-In Theatre is located about one mile south of Exit 13S of the Adirondack Northway, and it's easily identifiable by its large flashing marquee. At the theatre, you can enjoy double features on two screens this season.


Regular admission prices are $11 for adult tickets (ages 12 and older), and $6 for children tickets (ages 11 and under).

Parking and Viewing

Trucks, vans, SUVs, and other large vehicles must park next to silver poles only. Red poles are reserved for cars and other small vehicles.

Cars may park at a silver pole if they intend to watch the movie with friends that have a large vehicle, however the Drive-In will not ask a vehicle to move if it has blocked the view of a car next to a silver pole.

Guests should watch the movies from inside their vehicle (in seats, through an open hatchback, or from a pickup truck bed). Chairs, blankets, and other similar items must be either in front of or behind your vehicle, and you can only occupy one spot per vehicle.


The concession stand offers a variety of food, including pizza, chicken, candy, and popcorn. The theatre currently has a zero garbage policy. Guests must discard trash in the dumpster, the box office trash corral, or bring it home with you.

Note: You can purchase a food and beverage permit for $5 and bring in food and beverages from home.
