Named one of Fort Worth’s “hidden gems” by the Dallas Morning News, Coyote Drive-In provides an awesome outdoor movie-viewing experience.
But Denton County residents will no longer have to make the trek out to Fort Worth to enjoy the Coyote Drive-In experience because Coyote Theater LLC was recently approved by the Lewisville City Council to build a drive-in theater on the corner of Holford’s Prairie Road and Midway just a couple of blocks from the Sam Rayburn Tollway.
And the Lewisville location is planned to be even bigger and better than the Fort Worth location with five screens offering double features (versus Fort Worth’s three screens), an open-air pavilion, a kids’ play area and a 10,000-square-foot restaurant! And the owners are also working on plans to include a beer garden within the massive restaurant space!
The reason for the bigger vision? Coyote Theater execs believe they can expect 250,000+ cars to visit the drive-in annually with the five screens accommodating up to 1,367 cars.
They’re hoping to have the Lewisville location open just in time for prime drive-in weather, so look for news of the grand opening around May. Pricing will stay the same as the Fort Worth location’s current prices: $8 for adults, $6 for children age 4-10 and kids 3 and under for free. But remember that you’re really paying $8 for TWO movies so that’s only $4 a movie! Plus the cool experience of being at a drive-in.
I think our whole team may be spending a lot of time at the Coyote Drive-In this summer – nothing beats the nostalgia of watching a movie on a big screen from the hood of a car.
Let us know if you’re looking forward to this grand opening as well and maybe we can meet up for movie night!
