Blast from the Past: Rediscovering Drive-In Theaters

By Mandi Dietz

When looking to get out of the house and for something to do, opt for a little fun under the stars, rediscovering the forgotten comfort, convenience and nostalgia of drive-in theaters.

“Rain or Shine,” Fort Worth’s Coyote Drive-in Theatre and Canteen at 223 NE 4th Street opens daily at 7 p.m. Located on Panther Island, north of downtown Fort Worth, off Main Street and near LaGrave Field, ticket prices range from $8 for ages 12 and up, to $4 for children ages five to 11, and free for ages four and under.

Pets are welcome but must remain on a leash. Weekends, popular movies and holidays draw crowds and create long wait times, so purchasing tickets online in advance is recommended.
