Spiderman Homecoming - Free Facepainting 


There is nothing quite as jarring as the merging of worlds. Whether it’s your new beau or belle meeting your family or eating chocolate covered bacon, it’s hard to forget when you see or taste something you have never experienced before- when two different worlds come together.

That’s kind of what it was like when Marvel dove into the world of live-action remakes. Bringing comics to life is bringing the fantastical into reality. The fantasy becomes tangible and is no longer simply a fantasy.

People are very protective when an actor or actress is cast as their beloved comic book character. The young Spiderman makes an appearance in Captain America and luckily, the new Spidey quickly won us over. But, what we really love about Tom Holland’s roll is how he perfectly embodies the awkward tween persona that is as lovable as a puppy.

In Spiderman Homecoming, Peter lands an ‘internship’ with Stark Enterprises. Tony Stark, who is also Iron Man, begins to teach young Peter the ways of an Avenger as the young hero begins to embrace his new-found identity. With every teenager, there is a natural rebellion that occurs and becomes a big theme throughout the movie. As Peter learns more about his powers, he attempts to balance school life with his super hero responsibilities. Soon, he is put to the test when the evil Vulture threatens everything he loves.

Critics are raving about this new film and it is sure to be a huge hit. In fact, to celebrate we are having ANOTHER summer event at Stars and Stripes Drive-In Movie Theater. We will be having a retro red-carpet event with FREE face painting and photos with Spiderman! From 6-8pm on July 7th & 8th.

At Stars and Stripes Drive-In Movie Theater, we believe that a movie experience should be more than simply seeing a movie. It’s a memory. We want to help make your time with us a fun and unforgettable night for your family.

Not only are you getting an entertainment filled night, you get two movies for the price of one! And we have the coolest combo of movies around: Spiderman Homecoming and Wonder Woman. This is a once in a lifetime chance to watch these incredible super heroes back-to-back on the big screen! Check out our show times for Spiderman Homecoming and Wonder Woman here!

Minion Meet & Greet with Free Face Painting!

June 29th, 2017


Minion Meet & Greet for Despicable Me 3

Despicable Me 3 is coming out this Friday and it’s one of the biggest family films of the summer. Gru is back and better than ever with his 3 adorable girls and his minions that function like his 3000 additional children.

Despicable Me 3 is the 3rd movie installment in the Despicable Me series. The franchise “has grossed over $955 million domestically and 2.7 billion worldwide with the first three movies (including spinoff Minions).” Despicable Me 3 was an inevitable next step and is expected to smash the box office.

What’s Despicable Me 3 About?

After failing to capture the most wanted villain Balthazaar Bratt, Gru and his wife Lucy are fired from the Anti-Villain League. Soon after, he learns that he has a long-lost twin. With an abundance of new found time, Gru travels to Freedonia to meet Dru. Dru is a blonde-haired version of Gru and tries to convince Gru to join the dark side again. Sibling rivalry ensues and the lovable villain gone good, Gru, has to face his sibling, a former 80s child star villain, and what he wants his own future to look like.

Steve Carrell plays dual roles in this movie as both Dru and Gru. South Park’s star Trey Parker joins the all-star cast of Kristen Wiig Miranda Cosgrove, Russel Brand, Jenny Slate and more! There is so much to love about animated movies and their random love of hodgepodge casting.

Meet a Minion Red Carpet Event with FREE Face Painting

To celebrate this beloved series, we are having a minion red carpet event on Friday, June 30th and Saturday June 31st! Be sure to arrive early to Stars and Stripes Drive-In Movie Theater with your family, grab some food, get your face painted, meet your favorite minions, and watch the premiere of Despicable Me 3!

Memorial Day at Stars and Stripes Drive-In Theater in New Braunfels


Memorial Day weekend kicks off the drive-in movie season and we couldn’t be more excited. There is no better way to spend time during a long weekend than taking a trip to Stars and Stripes Drive-In Theater in New Braunfels. We are a fun and family friendly establishment that is the perfect activity to bring your friends and whole family!

With a fully stocked concession stand, playground, affordable prices, and friendly staff, we are ready to celebrate Memorial Day weekend with you! We were even voted the most underrated attraction in Texas by Good Housekeeping, so you will be sure to have a memorable time!

This weekend, Baywatch and Pirates of the Caribbean premier as the first Summer blockbusters




Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

The fifth installment of the Pirates series sets sail this Thursday. Johnny Depp once again dons his Jack Sparrow attire and is accompanied by an array of new characters. His old nemesis, Captain Salazar and his ghost pirate pack escape Devil’s Triangle and are determined to kill every pirate at sea. In typical archetypal fashion, the unscrupulous Jack Sparrow must go on a quest to retrieve the only thing that could possibly save him – the Trident of Poseidon.

What could only make this better is if it was coupled with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Lucky for you, movie times for Pirates of the Caribbean are paired with Guardians. It’s the perfect family friendly option for this holiday weekend.





Famous for its well-known slo-mos and classic eye candy, the 90s sitcom is back and ready for reboot. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson plays Mitch Buchannon who butts heads with brash, recruit Matt Brody (Zac Efron). Together, they uncover a criminal plot that threatens the Bay.

Make this Memorial Day a memorable one by checking out our movie times and watching a summer flick under the stars.
