WICHITA FALLS, Texas (TNN) - The Graham Drive-In is offering a safe way to watch movies and enjoy family time during the weekends, not only for residents of Graham, but people from all over.
While they are open for business during the COVID-19 pandemic, they are struggling with not being able to show new releases.
However that hasn’t stopped them from coming up with new and creative ways to make sure they keep guests entertained each weekend.
“We’re going to have a senior citizen night, and it’s going to be themed with the film “Red,” which stands for retired and extremely dangerous,” said Therrol Dubois, owner of Graham Drive-In Theater. “It’s a comedy, and we’re going to cut prices down four dollars for seniors and five for any other tickets.”
The drive-in has become more than just a place to watch a movie. It even opens its doors for the community in times of need.
“We were married 40 years, and we couldn’t find service anywhere,” said resident Louanne Phillips. “We have a fairly large family, so they were able to let us do the service here. We released balloons in his honor, and I wanted to continue coming here so my grown children and my grandchildren met here and we were able to be together.”
On any given night, the box office can sell 12 to 150 tickets. The majority of profits comes from concessions sales, but for the owners it’s about more than just money. They says they’re just happy the drive-in is a place where families can have a normal night out again.
The drive-in is open Friday through Sunday. More information can be found on its website.
