TWISTER will always have the rare distinction of being the first blockbuster ever made about tornadoes. The always awesome Bill Paxton stars as Bill, a retired storm chaser who is sucked into one last ride with his old team. When his soon-to-be ex-wife Jo (Helen Hunt) shows him the completed tornado-analyzing device, Dorothy, that was based off of his previous design from his days with the team. The more Bill tries to leave his old days of chasing tornadoes the harder he finds it to be. The film also stars a who's who of character actors Carey Elwes, Jeremy Davies, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Alan Ruck.

There are two ticket options for this event. The first is $10 and only gets you in to watch the movie. The second is an $18 option that also includes the movie and Franklin Barbeque's Tipsey Texan sandwich (chopped beef, sausage, cole slaw) for your eating pleasure.

There will also be limited brisket available to purchase, but if you plan to eat you should guarantee yourself a full belly by purschasing the $18 ticket.

Beverages of all kinds will also be available for sale.
