Drive-in theatres replaced drive-thru theatres, known for their bargain-priced, no-frills versions of popular films, such as One Man and a Baby and Star War. Avoid cutting corners with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get two admission tickets and a large popcorn at Dixie Twin Drive-In (up to a $20.50 value). Moviegoers can redeem tickets ($8/ages 13+, $1/ages 5–12) at the Dixie ticket booth every night of the week. Kids younger than 5 are free.
Dixie Twin Drive-In regales up to 900 show-goers with action, drama, comedy, or adventure from the comfort of their own automobiles, projecting moving pictures onto two giant outdoor screens encircled by a tree-lined landscape. After passing the vintage 1950s-style marquee sign, visitors can plant folding chairs, unfold backseats, or saddle onto dromedary camels for a first-run flick, such as “Cars 2” or “The Hangover Part 2.” Tears of laughter, sadness, or onion whittling can be assuaged with the 170-ounce popcorn, popped fresh within the indoor, wood-paneled concession stand. To make the movie-going experience even more intimate, the film's sound transmits through your car's FM radio or your own portable stereo.
