West Wind Las Vegas Drive-In

North Las Vegas

This 50-year-old institution has survived several changes in ownership and the increasing popularity of indoor multiplexes, leaving it as Vegas's only remaining drive-in. It's ideal for traditionalists and cheapskates who favour bringing their own drinks and snacks, though lights emanating from the surrounding sprawl have affected visibility. Six screens offer double features of current releases; sound is available through your FM radio.

    To misquote Forrest Gump’s mother, Guardians of the Galaxy is like a box of chocolates. Or rather, it’s like a vast, family-size crate of chocolates, all wrapped in the shiniest packaging and exploding with sweetness and surprises. Maybe there are...

    It’s no surprise that this digitally animated adventure from the producers of Edward Gorey–esque kids’ fairy tales Coraline and ParaNorman is an ooky, spooky affair. But the sheer stomach-churning weirdness of The Boxtrolls is a shock. In the med...

    You’d think gun-happy police would have enough PR problems these days—now they must contend with lame portrayals in aggressively unfunny August comedies. Directed by Luke Greenfield (whose The Girl Next Door suggested a brain), Let’s Be Cops is bo...

    It’s the end of the old millennium. New York City is a pusher’s paradise, Y2K fever is sweeping the globe and all crumpled crimefighters have a young black sidekick who says things like "word" and "dope." But something’s amiss. If it really is 199...

    Teenagers are getting it in the neck again, in the latest dystopian YA literary sensation to get the Hollywood treatment. The Maze Runner, adapted from the first novel in a series by James Dashner, takes a Lord of the Flies premise of boys fending...

    With stricken dolphin Winter re-homed in a Florida aquarium and fitted with a life-saving prosthetic fin, you’d think the story had peaked in the original movie, but this unexpected sequel offers a worthwhile follow-up. When her older dolphin comp...

    Director Sam Miller’s attempt to take us on a thrill ride feels more like a slow train pulling up to the station. This predictable home-invasion drama could have benefitted from complexity and narrative depth—or at least a few more viewings of Dav...
