TWIN DRIVE-IN INDEPENDENCE MO

A couple of weekends ago we enjoyed a fun evening at the Twin Drive-In located in Independence, Missouri as guests of my pal Mike or better known as Aparofan! This drive-in is amazing as you feel that you just fell back in time! It's been open since the mid-1960's and the only thing that's changed are the movies. The best part is that they still show the classic "It's Intermission Time" film between the double feature.

I dug out some photos that I had taken back in 2001 and those are all the day shots. The night shots are from a couple of weekends ago.

Here's the same intermission film.

Wow, nice to see a place like this still exists! I bet there aren't very many like it.

Wow! That looks like it would be well worth the trip. And that's my favorite intermission reel ever.
Thanks for enlightening me.

I use to reside in Liberty and go to thee Twin many weekends. Best part was when they use to have a third feature not on thee bill. Saw many oddball films like Return of thee Swamp Thing and other grade Z flicks. Still running and will reopen for thee 2011 season.

I'm in NYC, which is not Neato Coolville no matter what you may have been told. We haven't had any drive-ins near the city for decades, although they do show free movies in some of the parks (but it's not really safe most of the time).
Love to see drive-in photos.
Thanks.
