The Big Mo - Monetta Drive-In Theatre

5822 Columbia HWY N US 1
Monetta, SC 29105


This cultural icon was destined to be an area of overgrown trees, briars, worn traces of the old drive-in and even a junkyard until Richard and Lisa Boaz purchased the property and opened the Big Mo in March 1999. The theatre had been closed since 1986. One of three remaining drive-in movie theatres in South Carolina, The Big Mo has a play area for the kids and trivia contests during intermission. The drive-in is open Friday through Sunday for familes and couples to come have a "reel" good time. The concession stand features hot dogs, hamburgers, nachos, sno kones, ice cream, boiled p-nuts, etc.

Show starts at dusk. Call for times. Automated movie-line at (803) 685-7949 provides information on family-oriented films.
