Ultimate Outdoor Entertainment to Open First ‘Ultimate Drive-In’ Location in Austin, 2021


Ultimate Outdoor Entertainment (UOE), a Texas-based outfit that specializes in outdoor movie screen rentals, has announced the opening of their first drive-in theater in East Austin by April 2021.

Branded The Ultimate Drive-In, the theater will provide a hybrid movie experience combining open-air cinema seating with premium parking, alongside LED screens and SkyView Deck seating. Their approach will include dining and drink packages, contactless food and drink delivery or exclusive SkyDeck Loft concierge services, and a mix of repertory movies and new releases with theme nights and party packages. Various ticket options allow viewers to bring their own snacks, or guests can order the amazing Ultimate Grilled Cheese Donut or fresh popcorn packages delivered straight to their seats or vehicles.

“We began our outdoor movie adventure in Austin, TX in 2008, so we are thrilled to bring this new movie-going experience and vision to life here in our home-town!” said Darrell Landers, founder of UOE and The Ultimate Drive-In. “However, we want to make clear this is not your grandparent’s drive-in. We have created a modern combination of viewing options with a new generation of movie experiences as the world continues to change. Two-story outdoor seating options in our SkyView Deck Pods will accompany our drive-in parking spots and up-front single seats on plush turf, offering all first-class viewing options to our guests. With everything being bigger in Texas, the screen will be no exception! Expect a giant-sized viewing experience that will parallel some of the largest screens in the country.”

Before construction begins in January, UOE is spreading some holiday cheer in Austin with a 52′ inflatable screen, constructed on top of a platform of shipping containers located at 1600 S. Pleasant Valley Rd. to create a movie watching experience like no other in Austin.  UOE will screen a mix of holiday movies, new releases, and classic films starting Friday, November 27th. Chandra Schwausch with the UOE sales team says “Pardon our dust while we build the future of the drive-in and change the way Americans watch movies. With so many ways to consume movies and television these days, through phones, tablets, streaming services and more, combined with reduced big name films due and delays from Hollywood for the foreseeable future, the drive-in is the next best thing to a traditional indoor theater. But no wants to watch movies inside right now. It’s not safe. Outdoor movies and drive-in theaters are making a big comeback in these very different times.”

The Ultimate Drive-In final buildout will be complete mid-March. In the meantime, UOE’s temporary holiday drive-in will be held from November 27th, 2020 thru January 3rd, 2021. The largest inflatable screen in UOE inventory (52′ x 26′) will be used alongside their Mobile Max 15 LED Screen Trailer, creating two theaters (lots) of day and nighttime drive-ins. The first week of showings is up online, with the remaining Holiday Series lineup coming soon. All tickets must be purchased thru the website, www.TheUltimateDriveIn.com.
