The Coyote Drive-In is a small chain of local drive-in movie theaters in the region, including Leeds. The Leeds, Alabama, location is a favorite among those in Pell City. To listen to the movie, you just turn your radio to the appropriate channel for your screen. Read on for more movie details!
Hours and Location
The Leeds location of the Coyote Drive-In is at The Outlet Shops of Grand River. The shows run daily, regardless of the weather, starting at 5:30 p.m. Adult tickets are $8, and kids between 5 and 12 get in for $4. Kids 4 and younger are free. On Tuesdays, admission is just $5 for anyone 5 years old or older. Because the lines can be long on weekends or for blockbuster movies, the drive-in strongly encourages people to show up at least 90 minutes before the show to get a good spot. The admission always includes a double feature with an intermission in the middle.
Check Out the Canteen
You don’t have to worry about going hungry when you go to the Coyote Drive-In since there is also a canteen right there. The canteen opens at 5:30 p.m. and stays open until close. The menu includes pizzas, mozzarella sticks, chili cheese fries, hotdogs, nachos, corn dogs, sliders, and popcorn. There are also cookies, candy, and a range of drinks. The beverages cover something for everyone, including soda, water, draft and can beers, cider in cans, and wine.
You can take your items back to your car to enjoy, bring them to the grassy area, or sit at the pavilion, where you will find chairs and tables.

Important Rules to Know
Keep in mind that the Coyote Drive-In doesn’t allow you to bring in outside food or drinks. You have to park in a lined parking spot and can’t save a space for other cars. You also can’t change the screen at any point, which is something the film companies enforce. Feel free to bring along your pets, as long as they stay on a leash. The only exception to the rain or shine rule is when the weather makes it impossible to see the movie. There are no refunds, and you should be able to see the screen even if it’s raining.
Now that you know what to expect, you’re ready for a night of fun, whether you choose to watch the movies on the grassy area, in your car, or by the pavilion.
