New Braunfels' Stars & Stripes Drive-In presents... The Grinch

October 31st, 2018

     We’re ringing in the Christmas season here at New Braunfels’ Stars & Stripes Drive-In with the newest adaptation of a holiday classic! From Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment, it’s Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch!

     Set in a world that can only be described as… ‘Seussical,’ this soon-to-be holiday classic dives into the origin of a despicable creature known as The Grinch who, along with his trusty canine sidekick Max, sets out to ruin Christmas for the festive citizens of Whoville. This marks the third adaptation of the Dr. Seuss book. The most recent was Universal’s live-action How the Grinch Stole Christmas, starring Jim Carrey, which was itself a big screen remake of the Chuck Jones television special of the same name starring Boris Karloff. Illumination Entertainment is certainly no stranger to the works of Dr. Seuss. Their CEO Chris Melandri served as Executive Producer for Blue Sky Studios’ Horton Hears a Who! in 2008 before founding Illumination where he produced The Lorax in 2012.

     Stepping into the role of the famous green meanie this time is none other than Benedict Cumberbatch. In addition to having a name that’s fun to say, Cumberbatch is also known for a variety of roles that are fun to watch. Marvel’s master of the mystic arts Doctor Strange and, most notably, the BBC’s modernized version of the world’s greatest detective Sherlock Holmes to name just a few. Also starring in The Grinch are Rashida Jones from Parks and Recreation, Keenan Thompson from Saturday Night Live, and film and television legend Angela Lansbury.

     Click the link below to get your tickets for Dr. Seuss' The Grinch and remember, Stars & Stripes allows dogs, so don’t forget to bring your trusty canine sidekicks! See you at the Drive-In! 



Halloween 2018 in New Braunfels

October 23rd, 2018

Halloween 2018 in New Braunfels

Following the 1978 horror-slasher film Halloween, this sequel is a continuation that throws out all nine of the Halloween movies of the past 40 years.  Co-written and directed by David Gordon Green, this film follows the characters Michael Myers, played by  P.J. Soles, and Laurie Strode, played by Jamie Lee Curtis, as they seek to finish the evil business begun over four decades ago.  Horror film lovers in Austin will not want to miss this Halloween movie!

Families, especially those will small children, should take caution with this film.  It is rated R and is quite violent.  A complete family review is available on Common Sense Media where they recommend only those 17 and older catching this one.

The Halloween movie does convey the message of optimism and strength through the role Curtis plays as Laurie Strode. Viewers will see the importance of a positive will in life and how much this can help a person overcome a lot of bad circumstances.  Strode is a strong woman with a will to exact her revenge on Myers for what started 40 years earlier.   Common Sense Media says, “And, in perhaps the film's most significant break from tradition, the female characters -- while menaced by a male stalker -- are the smartest and strongest ones in the film. It's creepy, tense, fun; violent as hell; and downright feminist. This alternate-universe-sequel Halloween takes its place among the more respectable entries of the slasher genre.”

June 5th, 2018


Watching a great movie can be an escape, almost a mini-vacation where the stress of your day melts away.  When you catch a movie under the night sky at Stars and Stripes Drive-in Theater the experience is unforgettable.

One movie you should watch out for is the Jurassic world: Fallen Kingdom

The sensation of watching dinosaurs devour people does not get old, hence the sequel to the 2015 classical action – Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. The movie has several dinosaur actions and an erupting volcano.

Two years after the daring dinosaurs were set free and caused the lavish resort park to shut down, a volcano endangered the island, including the primordial creatures living there.

Owen, the Raptor trainer, played by Chris Pratt and Claire, the previous park manager played by Bryce Dallas Howard journeyed to the island in order to save the dinosaurs from extinction. However, they found out that the menace is bigger than they imagined

Jurassic World movie was more intense and scarier than the original films, and Jurassic World: fallen kingdom will pick up from where it stopped. There will be scenes of dangers, romance, as well as strong language.

In the movie, Owen began his journey in search of his raptor and uncovered a plot that will disrupt the planet's natural order.

Off the island

The movies show dinosaurs in different places including a kid's bedroom, on a roof, and in direct confrontation with a lion. The movie will also feature the return of Jeff Goldblum to the movie franchise.

The message

The movie will entertain and educate simultaneously. The sequel (Fallen kingdom) will include a message. According to Trevorrow (the director), the dinosaurs will represent the treatment most animals receive the medical experimentation, the abuse, and the use of animals.

While these themes are not completely new to the movie franchise, Jurassic World will explore other new avenues.

Don't expect to see many dinosaurs running after people on an island. Jurassic World: fallen kingdom will move from Isla Nublar to the world of Jurassic Park.


At the end of the movie, the audience will want more. Earlier Jurassic Park films had a clear conclusive ending, which was quite episodic.

There are diverse interesting possibilities; hence, the inventive minds behind Jurassic World have explored them.

Whatever reason that drives us to the theater in New Braunfels; this movie will leave you happier and merrier.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom opens June 21st 2018. Click here for tickets.
