Movie Theatre
“You just can't beat an old fashioned drive in movie. Mansfield stays true to the class, showing a double feature back to back on each of it's three screens. Usually offering a family friendly choice and a set of horror films for the grown ups. Their website gives showtimes and prices...plan on a late night, most shows don't start until at least 8:30 in the summer. ”
