Summer Season Extended and Planes Story Winner

dolphin2

We’ve been given an opportunity to extend our season with the movie “Dolphin Tale 2″ starting September 12.  We felt this was a great opportunity to offer family friendly fare in September. Unfortunately there is not a lot of family friendly product available right now, and we hope this will please a great number of our patrons. Our season will be extended for Friday and Saturday nights only September 12-13 and 19-20.  We’re working on our Labor Day weekend line-up and will have an announcement early in the week of August 24th.

We did have a winner in the Planes: Fire & Rescue contest.  Congratulations to Alexander Collins with the following Planes story:
It is soon to be Christmas time here in the world of Planes. Every air tanker and car is excited for Christmas, buying gifts and putting up the Christmas trees. While the Americans are enjoying this wonderful holiday, there was a war between two foreign countries that was ruining the spirit of Christmas for the millions of planes and cars. The two foreign countries were fighting over oil and other resources that fueled millions of planes and cars for every day life. In order to stop the war, the US air tankers had to provide extra oil to the two countries that are fighting. Dusty brought the idea to the US Naval base but they refused the extra oil. They wouldn’t want to risk losing profit to stop the war.

So Dusty, Nick “Loop’n” Lopez, and Maru set out on this amazing journey to figure out the real reasons behind this war. Officer Nick Lopez eventually discovered that one of the foreign air officers had a bad habit of talking things that didn’t belong to him. This particular foreign air officer had been gradually taking oil from both of the foreign countries, and then going to sell the oil to the Caribbean islands for twice of what it is worth. The Caribbean country was storing the fuel, while the foreign air officer was pocketing the money. Officer Nick “Loop’n” Lopez was able to arrest the foreign air officer. Mean while, Dusty and Maru were able to return the oil to the rightful owners. Once the war came to an end, the US had awarded Dusty, Officer Nick Lopez, and Maru with a medal of honor and bravery. They were seen as heroes around the world and even here at home. They saved Christmas for foreign soldiers, and they helped renew what the true Christmas spirit is here at home in America.

Alexander won movie passes for his entry.  We will have more contests next summer so be sure to stay tuned and keep you creative hats on!

See you at the movies!

      Thanks for the kudos. We love to hear them! Hope you enjoyed yourselves. It was a bit crazy on Sunday night with a few technical issues and staffing shortages, but we made it through!

    Hi!! I was just curious if during your extension, is A dolphin tale 2 the only movie that you will be playing? I usually am able to come and enjoy the drive in several times a summer but this year I’ve been ill so I haven’t been able to get there :( now that I’m doing a little better, I really want to come visit you all but I’m not sure if I want to make the drive for that particular movie so I thought I would ask. If not, I will hopefully see you all next summer! Your drive in is, hands down, my favorite thing to do!! I love it and everyone working there is always so nice!

    Thank you for keeping the wonderful experience of the drive-in alive and providing us with so much fun this summer. Thank you also for recently allowing me to shoot a video at the Holiday Twin Drive-In.

    Here is the video I shot for my Moving Postcard web series: http://movingpostcard.com/drive-in-movie/
    And here are a few photos: http://goodhardworkingpeople.blogspot.com/2014/09/holiday-twin-drive-in-movie-theater.html

    I’m sad to know the season is now coming to a close and am already looking forward to next summer.

    Hope you had a great season, too.

    I know that it says here on the website that Sept 20th was your last night, but it is still showing “Now Showing: Dolphin Tale 2″ :) Any chance you guys extended it one more weekend and have a showing tonight (9/26)? :)
