Longview's Dive-In Theater Showing Transformers Tomorrow

It's the wettest movie theater in east Texas. Tomorrow, the Longview Parks and Rec is hosting a dive-in movie.

You get to take a plunge in the pool and stay cool while watching a flick on the big screen. But, you better get there fast because only 200 swimmers can take a splash.

"We set up a movie screen at the pool and we're going to show Transformers this year, and we'll have the shallow pool open and we'll have the first 200 people can get in the water and use floats or anything like that and we actually get in and watch a movie in the water," said Seth Pyle of Longview Parks and Recreation.

Tomorrow, the pool opens at 8:30 pm and the movie starts at 8:45 pm.

The "dive-in movie" will be Transformers, rated PG-13 at the Longview Swim Center on West Fairmont Street.

The cost is five dollars and you get a free bag of popcorn.
