Twister (1.7MB - WAV)

Dear Patron:

This sound file was played before the start of TWISTER. If you remember the drive-in theatre that blew down in that movie was the GALAXY. So as you can imagine, everyone wanted to see TWISTER at the GALAXY. So I thought it would be fun to pretend that there were twisters headed toward the GALAXY. So let me take you to that time.

Of course it is dark at the GALAXY and we have a big crowd. Before we start the movie, we play this tape with thunder in the back ground. At the same time we have installed large strobe lights on the roof of the concession stand. So you are hearing thunder, and seeing simulated lightning while you wait for the movie TWISTER to start. Now what made the effect even more realistic was the heat lightning in the sky. So while all of this is happening, you hear the national weather SEVERE WEATHER alert over your radio. And the announcer tells you that there are numerous TORNADOS heading toward the GALAXY DRIVE-IN THEATRE, and tells you to take cover. Now do you believe what you are hearing? Once the warning concluded, all of the lights in the theatre went OFF. Itís now Totally Dark, and quiet. Then you get startled as you hear a fire department siren blowing loud at the drive-in. Yes we had a real siren mounted on the concession roof. So what do you do? What would you do?
