Drive-in theatre provides other means of entertainment

Kent State offers a variety of activities for students to choose from, but sometimes it’s nice to travel off campus and try new things.

Only a half-mile from Kent is a drive-in that runs newly released movies and charges only $16 per carload. The Midway Twin Drive-In is open Friday through Sunday, and cars can enter at 7:45 p.m.

“My favorite part was sitting on my friend’s car,” senior English major Stefanie Walesch said. “That’s an experience you can’t get at a theater.”

There are two screens simultaneously playing double features. Moviegoers tune into FM radio stations that the drive-in uses to create a surround sound listening experience for the film.

While there is a concession stand at the drive-in, food is allowed into the complex; however, a food permit must be purchased for $5 and can’t be shared with other cars. If patrons have a medical diet, they can bring in their own food without buying a permit. Water is also allowed into the complex.
