Could definitely be updated and add more screens. We went last weekend only to find out they had ONLY kids movies to select from.

They recently updated the projectors at this drive in. You always get to watch two movies and they replay the early movie after the second one finishes. There are two options of movies to choose from. They have a large confession are and bathrooms. The sound is played through a radio station given out when you enter the parking lot.

This place has been around for awhile. Been going her for about 25 years. One of the original treasures from the past. Half the price of the indoor complexes. Staff was friendly from ticket window to concession stand. This place has had ownership changes but still keeps rolling on. Only suggestion I would make to them is update the bathrooms.... More

Like that you can see 2 movies for $10 - great bargain. I would bring your own food/snacks because the concession area is not great.

This is a great drive-in theater to take the family to on the weekends. Although I agree with some of the other reviewers that the place does need some investment in the grounds, bathrooms and parking lot it is still worth loading up and heading out to the Twins for a two-fer move night. My tip for a economical and... More

Twin Drive In is a good, old fashion, family oriented movie theater. As the name implies there are two separate screens with at least two movies on each. Entrance fee is $10 but that's only $5 per movie - a lot less than what you would pay at a theater. Great for families - the kids can fall asleep in... More

We went here last night. If any of the speakers were working, I'd be surprised. The bathrooms were on the dingy side. However, everyone was pleasant, the shows were on time, and it was busy enough that although we had a good choice of spots, it wasn't claustrophobic.

We drove to Kansas City from out of state to go to a baseball game. On the way to our hotel, we drove by the Twin Drive In theater and thought it looked pretty cool. I quickly looked it up on my phone and saw there were showtimes for that night. We went to the baseball game and afterwards we... More
