Has anyone used a ten minute intermission trailer. I'm thinking about doing an intermission for POC3 and have found some good ones here: http://www.drive-infilm.com/

I use the one from Screen Attractions at my drive-in. It lets me stretch out my breaks a little, before people start getting impatient.

FYI- Intermissions, unless built into the presentation by the distributor, usually are not allowed. Check with your studio rep. (or your master licensing contract) so as not to bite the hand that feeds you.

Meant to clarify that this involves inserting an intermission into the middle of a long movie. Definitely a no-no here in the States but they seem to get away with it in European theatres from what I've read on other forums.

When I worked at the Skyline drivein, we put an intermission in the middle of Titanic. My boss said we need an intermission and he didn't care what the distributor said. The distributor didn't care because the grosses were so good from our theater.

True. I should have clarified. I use the clock between features here.

I use the 10 minute "Variety Show" intermission trailer from Filmack at my theatre, and like Rodeojack, I use it "between features" at the drive-in.

I've seen some of the stuff from drive-in film.com and most of what I saw was newly struck prints made from old scratched trailers... (kind of like playing Grindhouse all over again.) Nothing like brand new trailers with built-in scratches.
