Make Memories with Us!

Stars and Stripes Drive-In Theatre New Braunfels is 3 years old!

April 21st, 2018

April 1st, 2015 is when Stars and Stripes Drive-In Theatre in New Braunfels opened its doors for the first time.
Here's our story from our founder, Ryan Smith:
Our drive-in story goes all the way back to 1948 when my grandfather started the Sky-Vue Drive-In Theatre in Lamesa, TX. I grew up hearing great stories about the people, the events, and the food that made this small west Texas business the pride of the town. While experiencing my first drive-in movie at the Sky-Vue in June of 2002, I felt a calling to share this slice of Americana. In January of 2003 we purchased a Lubbock cotton farm, and on August 21st Stars & Stripes Drive-In Theatre started showing double-features and serving Rockin' Eats TM. After celebrating our ten year anniversary, we bought a farm just outside of New Braunfels to serve another incredible community as well as central Texas. Many incredible people have believed in our vision of a modern, family-friendly drive-in theatre experience. We are forever grateful for the patronage and support. We consider it an honor to help reclaim this unique part of American history and to serve you a better way to watch a movie. Whether you want to load up the family wagon, hang out with friends, or plan a date under the stars, we invite you to enjoy making lasting memories with us. See you at the drive-in!

What You Need to Know Before You See Blade Runner 2049

What You Need to Know Before You See Blade Runner 2049


At Stars and Stripes Movie Theatre, we are a fan of classic movies. Blade Runner, the prequel to Blade Runner 2049, instantly comes to mind when you think of staple Sci-Fi movies. Racking up the most impressive reviews of the year, Blade Runner 2049 is a must see for movie-goers, but it won’t make much sense if you haven’t seen the first one.


The First Movie


Blade Runner 2049 reimagines the original 80s prequel with a 21st century mindset. In the first movie of the franchise, Harrison Ford plays a bounty hunter (AKA Blade Runner), enlisted to find Nexus 6 replicants. These replicants were made as slaves for Earth’s off world colonies and have runaway to save themselves. The movie tracks along Harrison Ford as he is challenged by more than just his job, but his idea of humanity and emotion on a broad scale.


It’s Captivating


The quality of this movie is incredible. The graphics and music blend perfectly together to create a saturated sci-fi vibe. With a post-apocalyptic setting, Blade Runner 2049 blends dark images with stark neon lights as it carefully builds a detailed world. Pay attention to the details – the art director incorporated the tiniest of details to thoroughly create a post-apocalyptic setting.


It’s Out Now


This might seem obvious, but Blade Runner 2049 is out today! We suggest you watch the first one beforehand, but if you don’t, that is okay too! Stars and Stripes Movie Theatre is the ideal place to watch a movie in the fall. As the weather cools off, snuggle up in a car with your friends and family as you watch the latest flick!
