Drive-in theatres replaced drive-thru theatres, known for their bargain-priced, no-frills versions of popular films, such as One Man and a Baby and Star War. Avoid cutting corners with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get two admission tickets and a large popcorn at Dixie Twin Drive-In (up to a $20.50 value). Moviegoers can redeem tickets ($8/ages 13+, $1/ages 5–12) at the Dixie ticket booth every night of the week. Kids younger than 5 are free.
Dixie Twin Drive-In regales up to 900 show-goers with action, drama, comedy, or adventure from the comfort of their own automobiles, projecting moving pictures onto two giant outdoor screens encircled by a tree-lined landscape. After passing the vintage 1950s-style marquee sign, visitors can plant folding chairs, unfold backseats, or saddle onto dromedary camels for a first-run flick, such as “Cars 2” or “The Hangover Part 2.” Tears of laughter, sadness, or onion whittling can be assuaged with the 170-ounce popcorn, popped fresh within the indoor, wood-paneled concession stand. To make the movie-going experience even more intimate, the film's sound transmits through your car's FM radio or your own portable stereo.
Dixie Twin Drive-In
Dixie Twin Drive-In transports moviegoers back to the 1950s with a constantly changing selection of first-run films on two outdoor screens, one 120’ x 52’ and the other 100’ x 65’. Cars pull into the drive-in’s tree-enclosed grounds and tune into a private FM radio station, which provides the audio accompaniment to movies’ car chases, star-crossed love affairs, and alien invasions wedged awkwardly in the middle of historical biopics. The theater starts the season with weekend screenings, then kicks into full swing with daily screenings during the warmest weeks of summer.
