Video: Examining A Drive-In Urban Legend

Here’s a treat for you to start off the new year. In his documentary short Twisted, Jay Cheel dissects the urban legend that in 1996, a tornado demolished a drive-in screen as it was showing the movie Twister, which included a sequence of a tornado demolishing a drive-in screen. Thanks to Vimeo, you can watch the whole thing here.

I wrote a little about this last August when I virtually visited the Can-View, the drive-in with the kernel of truth from which this legend sprang. It’s nice to see that someone else thought the topic was worth talking about. Enjoy!
