A drive-in theater on the Trinity’s banks
Remember back in the day when you?d watch a movie under the stars and in your car?
Yeah, neither do we.
But thanks to Coyote Drive-In--yes, we said ?drive-in?--in Fort Worth, such memories are yours for the taking. Plus, they?re sure to top the 1950s-era experience. (Sorry, Grandma.)
The four men behind the venture (who also founded such lively ?90s enterprises as the Green Room and the Gypsy Tea Room) perfectly blend nostalgia and modernity. Here, a rundown of what to expect:
How to Watch and Listen Each of the three gigantic screens shows first-run movies (Iron Man III, Oblivion), and sound is transmitted to your car via a special FM satellite signal.
What to Eat You can?t bring your own snacks and drinks, but the well-stocked canteen currently serves fare like burgers, chicken sandwiches and thin-crust pizza. Order from your smartphone, and servers will deliver the goods to your car.
Bonus Points 1) The killer view of downtown and the Trinity River. 2) A kids? playground, should your little ones lose interest in The Great Gatsby. 3) Hitching posts, meaning you can ride your horse there.
