Augusts’ most anticipated openings!

The two most anticipated movie openings in August will be playing at the Holiday Twin this weekend. We had to wait an extra day for our film booker to work out the deal but we were able to land both features this week. (Pun intended) :-)

August 9-15th our line-up will be as follows:

Screen 1: Planes with co-hit The Smurfs 2

Screen 2: Elysium with co-hit The Wolverine

Elysium is rated R and we will be playing it first even though Wolverine is rated PG-13. We previewed the film and it’s mostly violence, but not more so than Wolverine to a large degree. It has language as well. With it being the new movie, we decided to play it first despite it’s rating.

The weeknights at the Twin for the 2013 season are quickly coming to an end. We will be closed weeknights starting August 19th. We will be open Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights after that.

See you at the movies!

    Confused! your “coming soon” says Percy Jackson starts on 8/9 but your pairings dont show it at all for Fri 8/9. What’s the real story? Really want to come see Percy Jackson.

      In the planning stages we looked at Percy Jackson and Elysium. The film booker was unsure which we would play. We went with Elysium over Percy Jackson now. Our plan is to play Percy later in the month as a co-hit with Planes.

        I know you cannot commit to a specific date “later in August” but will Planes and Percy Jackson possibly play together before the end of your weekday nights for the season? (PS: You run a GREAT drive-in and we come all the way from Longmont to enjoy your movies and snackbar!)

    I am a mom and my children are young. I don’t understand why two kid movies are playing on the same screen. My kids are more often than not asleep after the first movie which leaves us parents watching an undesirable movie when we would rather watch a non animated flick.

      We have a number of requests for the kids movies to play together, then we have a number of requests for the kids movies and then a more adult movie. We can’t please everyone all the time. We try to mix it up and hopefully everyone gets their way once a season. Hopefully you understand.

    Can I ask what you plan on playing Friday the 16th? We have a 2 hour drive to get down there and want to know if the movies available will be age appropriate and ones that were recently released. Please and thank-you!

    I am from Cheyenne and my 8 year anniversary with my girlfriend is on Sunday August 18 and I wanted to take her to your drive-in for the anniversary. We have never been here before and I wanted to know what your movie schedule is for this day so I can try to plan and make the trip to Fort Collins for the day. Thanks.

    Snackbarqueen,

    Bringing some teenagers to the Drive-in Saturday the 24th-do you have any idea what your features will be then so I can clear it with parents?

    Thanks!

      Tammy! This is one time I just don’t know. We may have a retro night on one screen, it’s all in the planning phase right now. I will get back to you as soon as I know.

    I have not been to your drive in before. My kids have gone and really like it a lot. I am excited to be coming there tonight for the first time. Is there a chance that if we cannot be there until 7:30 that there will be no space available.
