Coyote Drive-In is set to install its screens  today at 3 p.m. as the theatre plans for an opening in the spring of 2013.

Coyote Drive-In will be located at 223 NE 4th St. Equipped with three screens, Coyote Drive-In will play first-run movie, double-features in digital format and patrons will be able to stream sound through their car radios.

“We are really excited to get all three screens up this week,” said Brady Wood, owner of Coyote in a news release.  “We’ve had a lot of interest from the public about when they can enjoy our drive-in and the installation of the screens is the first step in the construction required to open next spring.”  

In addition to the drive-in, the area will be able to accommodate guests without cars for movies in specially designated box seating areas.  Guests of the drive-in and those not seeing a movie will be able to eat outside and keep children entertained in a playground at the site. The pavilion area complete with fans and misters, and the play area will not require a movie ticket.  The theater will allow patrons to use their smartphones to order food and beverages from the on-site kitchen and gourmet food trucks.

“This project is an important milestone for Trinity Uptown,” said Trinity River Vision Authority Executive Director, J.D. Granger, “As we continue to program the area the public will get a better idea of what the future looks like for this neighborhood.”
