Gain some insight as to why we bring back retro movies every now and then!
 

Movies, new and retro
Meanwhile, Stars & Stripes Drive-In owner Ryan Smith also has created a Retro Weekend by bringing back three hit movies from the 1980s and making them available only Friday through Sunday.
The three returning hits are:

  • Steven Spielberg’s classic “ET., The Extra-Terrestrial,” the filmmaker’s children’s-film-for-adults released in 1982.
  • Richard Donner’s comedy-turned-cult-favorite “The Goonies,” released in 1985.
  • Tim Burton’s hilarious “Beetlejuice,” with Michael Keaton in the title role, released in 1988.

“As drive-in theater enthusiasts, we celebrate the start of autumn because we can enjoy earlier show times, cooler weather and retro movies under the stars that we cannot show during the summer season. These retro ‘80s movies were selected because they are full of adventure, laughs – and many of our guests grew up watching them, but never have experienced them outdoors on a huge drive-in screen,” Smith said.
“We’re looking forward to sharing something old and something new with family and friends this weekend.”
Admission price for each double feature: $8 for general public age 12 and older, $5 for children between ages 4 and 11, with children age 3 and younger free.
Specific screening times this weekend at the Stars & Stripes Drive-In:
On Screen One:
Animated family comedy “Abominable” will be shown at 7:50 p.m.. It will be followed on the same screen at 9:50 p.m. by “E.T., The Extra-Terrestrial.”
On Screen Three:
“The Goonies,” which costars John Matuszak as “Sloth” Fratelli, will be screened at approximately 8 p.m. It will be followed on the same screen at 10:20 p.m. by “Beetlejuice.”

What We are Excited to See in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

What We are Excited to See in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

 

On May 5th, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is zooming into Lubbock theaters and we could not be more excited. Last year, the Hollywood Reporter quotes that Guardians of the Galaxy was projected to gross $65 million, but smashed the box office expectations with a 94.3 million dollar US 2014 opening weekend debut.

With opening day of the highly-anticipated sequel creeping around the corner, we thought we would share a few things we are excited to see in Guardian of the Galaxy Vol. 2:

1. STINKIN’ CUTE BABY GROOT

 

This one is obvious because everyone just about lost their minds when they saw the adorable sapling sprout in place of beloved Groot. We can’t get enough of this cuddly, baby, tree creature. For you Baby Groot skeptics out there, according to an article in Polygon director James Gunn states that making “Groot a baby was never a marketing ploy. Instead, Gunn said that he has troubles writing an adult Groot for the sequel” and that Baby Groot molded easily into the group.

Well, we can’t saw were mad about it. And we aren’t mad at they decided to put a tiny outfit onto his tiny, branchy body.

 

2. A Killer Soundtrack

In the first movie, the nostalgic, cassette mixtape had everyone over the age of 30 exuding soft giggles and reminiscent sighs of yesteryear. “Set to the all-new sonic backdrop of Awesome Mixtape #2,” Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2’s soundtrack is bound to be an awesome partner to the first. If their trailer theme song, The Chain by Fleetwood Mac, is a taste of what is to come, give us a heaping plate full and about 20 extra servings.

 

3. Family Oriented Sentiment

We are suckers for the plot line that focuses on a squad of misfit characters teaming up to save the world. There is something so relatable about the hodgepodge of characters, their quirky personalities, and their bantering group dynamic. Its familial feel broadens the definition of family. 

Also, we are interested to see what the father/son relationship looks like between Peter Quill and Ego, the (quite literal) Living Planet. Hmm…

 

4. Yo, Sylvester Stallone and Kurt Russell

Although Kurt Russell and Sylvester Stallone won’t be sharing the screen together like they did in Tango & Cash, we are excited to see these stars added to the impressive cast list. With slight mystery around Stallone’s character and Kurt Russell as a literal astronomical force, it only adds to the anticipation.

We hope you are as excited as we are. Don’t just go to a regular movie theater in Lubbock to watch this epic movie. Watch Guardians with us at Stars and Stripes Drive-In Movie Theater in Lubbock. Get your tickets today.

See you soon!
