First Retro Night of the Season Plus a Giveaway!

We’re trilled to offer our first retro film night of the season on Tuesday, May 7th. Our screen Two will be showing; Grease, the Sing-a-long version with the co-hit American Graffiti.

We’ve waited a long time to be able to play movies other than the ones we booked that are current releases. We plan to have one more retro night in May. Tuesday, May 14th will be the second play date and we have not confirmed the movies yet, but we will announce them here as soon as we know.

There will be something for everyone come August when we go into full swing with our retro film offerings. Until then, will all the big summer movies being released we’re unable to get permission from the film companies to “cut them out” of … Read More »

Spring time in the Rockies

“Wait 15 minutes and the weather will change!” It must be spring time in the Rockies. Wintery weather one day and 60 degrees the next. We plan to open again this weekend on Friday, April 26 and Saturday, April 27. This will be our last weekend only week until mid-August. Our employees are happy and so are we!

Closed Due to Snow

The Holiday Twin will be closed this weekend, April 19-20 due to the weather conditions. With the amount of snow on the field we do not expect the conditions to change or improve enough to provide a pleasant experience for our patrons. We will re-open on Friday, April 26 and Saturday April 27th. Movies will be announced by Monday, April 22nd on our web site, on Facebook and via Twitter. Stay warm and be safe.

Nostalgic Cinema

Drive In’s are all the rage these days. It seems everywhere you go folks are talking about “their drive-in”. In our trade publication, “Box Office”, there is a nice article about drive-in’s this month. The author, David Binet, focuses on celebrating American Drive-ins through the years. Binet says, “Today’s drive-in cinema feels much like the drive-ins of yesteryear, only with some significant improvements.” Significant is right! Digital projection is transforming drive-in’s across the country. Today there are approximately 368 Drive-in theaters left in the United States. Those theaters have a screen count of 611. Amazingly, new drive-in’s are being built. The newest in Fort Worth, Texas (where year round operation is possible). While most drive-in’s close not because of a lack of business, but because of the cost of … Read More »
