Traveling Vest Virginia
Sunset Ellis Drive-In

First Run Movies In An Outdoor Setting


Anthony Ellis knows how to entertain.

Ellis’ family bought the Sunset Ellis Restaurant and Drive-in Theater in 1955, and it has been in operation ever since. Built in 1947, the Shinnston theater is West Virginia's second oldest drive-in. Movies are shown April through September.

What sets the destination apart from all others is the Ellis restaurant, featuring home-cooked meals and seasonal specialties. But the restaurant’s most famous offering is the Giovanni sandwich that is not to be missed.

Offering first-run double features at a great price, $6 for adults and $3 for children, the Sunset Ellis Restaurant and Drive-In Theater in Harrison County gives you a healthy dose of nostalgia that is easy on your wallet.
