Tidbit – “A small piece of news or information.”

Here at the Holiday Twin Drive In Theatre we are always looking for ways to better communicate with our customers.  After all, if you don’t know what’s showing, how will you decide to come to the movies?

In early 2014 the issue of missing information came to the forefront when I became aware of our patrons having difficulty seeing our social media posts. As a result, I began to earnestly think about and research the most effective communication tools available. I’ll spare you the details, however I eventually landed on the idea of designing and building our own app to utilize push notification technology thereby reaching our customers directly.  Notifications are sent via an app, directly to the notification bar/ lock screen of your smart phone and allowed by you.  For a … Read More »

Drive In Season Begins

Welcome to June! The official launch of the Drive-in season coincides with the first big movie in June and this year it’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows.  The second feature will be Angry Birds.  One Screen 2 we’ll be playing The Jungle Book with the second feature X-Men:Apocalypse.  Every summer we have some really tough decisions to make about which movies we play and which ones we pass on in order to make sure we can play the hits that will follow.  We are a family friendly theatre and rarely play R rated films. Tonight, Friday June 3rd, we welcome the Sisters on the Fly to our theatre.  Visit their website https://www.sistersonthefly.com/about-us/about-sotf/  and see for yourself what this wonderful organization is all about.  They’ll have their delightful vintage trailers on hand tonight and you can take a … Read More »

Closing out April Movie Updates

Wow friends! Thanks for an amazing weekend last week.  We felt like it was mid July.  Three-quarters of our staff are new – and they’re getting the hang of it!  We’re really proud of them and thank you to every one who has patience as we train our “newbies” and get back in the grove ourselves.  🙂This coming weekend we’ve only made one change in the line up.  We’re replacing Batman with My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2.  I know some of you were looking forward to Star Wars, but we couldn’t make a deal with the film company that was satisfactory to us.  Sometimes we just have to pass.  We do have some fun collectible cups, toppers and tins for Star Wars, Batman and coming soon Captain America.  These are highly collectible and we encourage you to pick them … Read More »
