Coyote DriveIn Lewisville
Coyote DriveIn Lewisville: The area’s first drive-in movie theater in more than 30 years, has opened at the corner of Holfords Prairie and Midway roads, and we were invited for a sneak peek!
Although neither of my kids had ever been to a drive-in theater, I’m sure this was just the first of many visits – they both LOVED it!
For myself, Coyote Drive-In Lewisville has all of the nostalgia of going to drive-ins as a child, but with a much more updated, enhanced experience. The drive-in that I visited as a child had clunky speakers that you would hook to your window, a small-cinderblock concession building with limited options, and a metal swing-set – you know the kind… that shakes when you swing too high:)
Coyote DriveIn Lewisville takes drive-ins to a whole new level!
The concession building is beautiful, well-lit, and inviting. There’s a large, covered patio with lots of seating options and live music on the weekends. Plus they have a bar with flat-screen TVs to keep you entertained as well. That means you can arrive early, get a good viewing spot, and enjoy the time that you’re waiting with family and friends.
And they didn’t forget about the kids! Not only do they have fun decorations throughout, but the playground was a big hit with everyone!
And the girls loved picking out their favorite beverages from the digital fountain dispenser that allows you to mix and match flavors!
The 35-acre complex features five movie screens, a 10,000-square-foot pavilion that includes a restaurant and full-service bar, and a fenced-in playground for kids. Patrons can buy artisan pizzas made from scratch, burgers, cotton candy, movie theater snacks, craft beers, and a wide selection of wines.
The complex has a capacity for 1,500 vehicles, and an outdoor seating area for about 300 people. It also will be used as a live music venue on weekends and to screen regional sporting events.
Coyote Drive-In is open seven days a week, and will show double-feature new releases every night with show times beginning 15 minutes after sunset. Movies are shown using state-of-the-art digital projection systems. There are four specially coated movie screens more than 75 feet wide and one more than 60 feet wide. Dolby Digital sound will broadcast to each vehicle through FM transmitters, and portable speakers are available to rent.
General admission ticket prices are $7-8 for people 11 and older, $4-6 for children 4-10, and children under 3 are free. A ticket includes two movies. No outside food or drinks will be allowed in the complex.
And yes! You can even bring your dog!!
