It’s always hard to say goodbye! This will be our season finale for 2013 this coming weekend, Fri-Sat-Sun-Oct 11-12-13. Thanks to everyone who patronized Becky’s during the 2013 season! We plan on reopening for the 2014 season sometime in April.
We couldn’t have run the drive in without all our dedicated employees. Thanks to all of our employees for their hard work this past season. There have been a few employees who have worked for Becky’s since the 1970’s. That is what you call devotion to Becky’s!
On Saturday, October 19th, our nephew, Sean Beck, will be married to his high school sweetheart, Mindy Mertz-Hockenberry. We wish them both many years of married blest!
For our final weekend, we are showing classic Halloween movies from the 1970’s & 80’s. Triple features on both screens! Screen 1 will have horror movies for adults and Screen 2 will have kid friendly Halloween movies.
The gates open Friday night at 6 pm. On Saturday and Sunday night the gates will open at 5 pm so we can hold our 1st Annual Trunk or Treat event on Screen 2. If you have never heard of that you can visit a website with ideas for your own trunk.
All we ask is everyone viewing Screen 2 features and have children of your own, please consider participating in the Trunk or Treat event by having your trunk opened with some goodies for children to enjoy. We will have the younger patrons walk around and visit everyone’s trunk. You may decorate your trunk as well. There will be prizes for the best decorated trunks. (Passes to use sometime next season)

Special activities besides the Trunk or Treat will be: Each car entering the drive in to view the triple features will receive one pass to use one time during the 2014 season. We have been doing this for years on the last weekend we are opened for the season and everyone looks forward to it each year. It’s our way of thanking you for your patronage during the 2013 season.
This weekend, all patrons that show up dressed in costume can get a free photo taken in 3-D! The 3-D pictures will then be posted to the Becky’s Facebook page for download. The 3-D pictures will be in Anaglyph 3-D, so any glasses with Red and Blue lenses will work, but don’t worry if you need glasses we will have pairs available for $.75 a piece.
On Saturday night only, at roughly 6:00 pm, we will be setting up a 3-D video camera in front of Screen 1 (the big screen). We would like to set a world record for the most people in a Halloween costume crawl by while being filmed in 3-D at a drive in.
Basically, what we want to do is get everyone dressed in costume in front of Screen 1 and have you walk, shamble, creep, and crawl towards the 3-D camera like the zombies, monsters, and ghouls that you are. All patrons, young and old, are welcome to participate.
Each child dressed up for Halloween will receive one coupon for one Kids tray, which includes popcorn, candy and souvenir cup with soda in it.
We will have our moon bounce and trackless fire engine rides going before the features begin. For our final weekend, the rides will be $1.00 per ride.
There will be food menu specials this weekend, as well.
12” pizza--$8.00, Jumbo pickle--$1.00, King size pretzel--$2.00, Pretzel bites-$4.00, Chipwiches-& Sundaes--$2.00, Ice cream sandwiches--$1.75, Hot dog’s --$1.50, Chili Dogs--$2.00, Kids Souvenir cup w/soda--$1.00, to name a few.
Congratulation goes out to: Kristy Bernard, who was the 67th email with two movies she is looking forward seeing at Becky’s in 2014. Her favorite movies are: “Transformers 4” and “50 Shades of Grey”. Some other movies that were popular with patrons were: “Godzilla’, “How to Train a Dragon 2”, and “Captain America”. Kristy, please email your mailing address, so I can get two passes out to use next season.
I will be sending newsletters during the winter months when there is any news about Becky’s that will seem newsworthy. This winter will be a quiet one for us. (Fingers crossed)
See you under the stars at Becky’s this coming weekend!
Movies are more fun at Becky’s!
