Weekend Update!!

I don’t know if it’s because he’s having a birthday or if it’s because he just wants to see me sweat, but my sweet husband (a.k.a. the owner) has decided to make every night this weekend $10 per car load! YIKES!! Yes, you read right, $10 every night, all weekend long.  Say good bye to the last 35 mm film movies you’ll ever see at the Holiday Twin and join us for a fun and inexpensive weekend.  We’ll be posting specials on Facebook and Twitter every night.  I’ll let you in on one deal in advance: All t-shirts will be 20% off every night.  Show your support for the Twin while you enjoy movies under the stars, and a full moon!

See you at the movies!


Final Weekend Fun

Hard to believe but our final weekend is fast approaching.  We worked with our film booker last week to make our last weekend a great one.  It’s costing us much more than we normally like to pay for movies combos, but we know our fans will support us. Screen 1 will be “Paranorman” with the co-hit “The Odd Life of Timothy Green” and Screen 2 will be “The Bourne Legacy” with the co-hit “Ted”.

We’ll be posting specials every night on Facebook and Twitter for the final four nights of the season.  Just a reminder, we’re open weekends only and the final four nights are 8/31, 9/1, 9/2 & 9/3.

To add to the excitement we’re having “retro” weekend.  All weekend if you come dressed in 50’s vintage clothing, think “Grease”, or drive a vintage auto, 60’s or earlier, we’ll give you … Read More »

Weekends Only, 2012 Season Ends

For the last three years we’ve closed after Labor Day.  We’ve owned the drive-in since 1979 and watched the trends very closely.  While there are always a few surprises thrown in the mix, one thing we know for certain; once school starts our weeknight business is almost non-existent.  That’s not to say that NO ONE comes to the drive-in, just not enough folks to justify remaining open during weeknights this time of year.  So we’ve made the decision to close on weeknights for the remainder of this season.  Starting today, August 22, we will have 7 open nights for the remainder of this season.  Those nights are: 8/24, 25, 26, 31 and 9/1, 2 and 3.  We’re working with our film booker to change-up the movies on the closing weekend and will know more the first of next week.  For … Read More »

Enjoying the Cool Down

Aren’t evenings wonderful in Fort Collins?  Coming from the heat in Saint George, Utah, I appreciate our nights here even more.  Even when the sun goes down in Saint George the temperature rarely drops below 90 degrees.  I’m sure our Fort Collins neighbors think we’ve lost it when we’re sitting outside at midnight in shirtsleeves watching the stars!  It usually takes us about 2 weeks to “get back to normal” once the season ends.  I laugh when regular people call me at 8:30 in the morning and apologize because they woke me up!  We usually get to bed around 2 am and our projectionist reports a 4 am bedtime.  You can imagine what a sight it was when I had to meet the tree trimming company at 7am at the drive-in this summer! Enough to scare small children, I’m sure. … Read More »
