The Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater Restaurant is located at Disney's Hollywood Studios, one of the four main theme parks at Walt Disney World, in Bay Lake, Florida. The restaurant is modeled after a 1950s drive-in theater, with booths resembling period convertibles. While eating, guests watch a large projection screen displaying film clips from old B-movies such as Frankenstein Meets the Space Monster, Plan 9 from Outer Space, and Attack of the 50 Foot Woman.

The entrance to the restaurant is made to look like a box office, and guests walk from there along a tall fence to the dining room, where several fiberglass booths made to look like convertibles from the 1940s and 1950s fill the area. The cars have whitewall tires, and license plates are dated 1955. Each convertible seats four people who eat off formica countertops. The ceiling simulates a night sky replete with twinkling stars made from optical fibers. The upper walls of the dining room display a 360-degree panorama of Southern California as seen over a fence.
