Watching a movie at a drive-in affords the excitement of enjoying a film with a large audience without the risk of being kicked out every time you pretend to be the driver in a high-speed car chase. Revel in a carefree cinematic experience with today's Groupon: for $9, you get two tickets (up to a $16 value), two cans of pop (a $3 value), and two medium popcorns (a $7 value) at the Capri Drive-In in Coldwater (up to a $26 total value). Children ages 5–11 are admitted for $2 each and kids younger than 5 are free.
The Capri Drive-In captivates stationary motorists with back-to-back features of first-run blockbusters projected on two massive screens. The Capri's outdoor environs have been carefully constructed to block out light pollution, allowing its bright xenon projectors to bring crisp, clear images of current releases to life. As viewers soak in the larger-than-life narratives from the comfort of their cars or lettuce-powered rickshaws, FM and AM radio waves broadcast to vehicular radios, allowing for individualized volume levels and added bass boost. Two sodas and two medium popcorns from the classic concessions booth tide over appetites as they wait hungrily for the evening's films, which, much like firefly senate hearings, don't begin until the sun has set.
When John and Mary Magocs opened the Capri Drive-In in August 1964, they had no idea the theater they ran with their two young sons would one day be highlighted as one of the most charming in the country. The New York Times once named it among 10 Drive-Ins Worth a Detour, noting its family ownership and stellar concessions. Capri boasts that its original 150'x75' screen is one of the largest in the country; in 1986, it expanded its viewing space by adding a second 80'x40' screen. Short-range FM radio stations broadcast audio from the drive-in's current showings to the spacious lot, which holds more than 900 cars. Viewers can swing by the snack bar to pick up barbecue-pork sandwiches, nachos, ice cream, and even mosquito coils, which repel bugs more easily than hurling a personalized insult at each one that flies by.
