Three years after Coyote Drive-In brought an old-school moviegoing experience back to Fort Worth, they are opening a new set of screens this weekend in Lewisville.

At the intersection of Midway Road and Holford’s Prairie Road, the new Coyote is larger and has more amenities than the three-screen original. This one features five screens, a 10,000-square-foot restaurant, a beer garden, indoor concession area, and has the capacity for about 1,500 vehicles, about 300 more than in Fort Worth.

The five screens, two more than Fort Worth, will show 10 different films each night, each screen showing double features.

Friday through Thursday this week will offer: Inferno with The Magnificent Seven, Ouija: Origin of Evil with Girl on the Train, Keeping Up With the Jonseses with Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, Jack Reacher with Deepwater Horizon and for something a little lighter, Storks with Tyler Perry’s Boo!: A Madea Halloween.

The drive-in is pet-friendly and has a play area for kids. Portable radios can be rented for $5.
