Why would you put the kids movie last at 1:30 a.m…? All of the kids will be passed out in the car by then.

This is exciting! People are complaining but this is a 3rd movie at no extra cost! These are nice surprises!

Kids movie first would be great

The first time we saw the original was at your drive in!

A couple years ago the drive in got new projector because all movies switched to new film that the old projectors couldn't use. So that's probably why there's no old Twister... although it would be great if you could play thee old Twister with the new Twister

Just watched it on MAX if you have the subscription!
