In the spring of 2015, Dwight Grimm and Leigh Van Swall revived the historic Greenville Drive-In in Greenville, NY. In addition to upgrading the projection equipment, the couple built a fully-licensed biergarten in the concessions area to showcase Dwight’s unique approach to craft cocktails utilizing local ingredients and products from the Catskills and wider Capital Region.
This gave birth to Cinema with a Twist, a multimedia information brand featuring articles, recipes, a podcast and personal appearances by Dwight. The radio show airs alternate Thursdays at 1 p.m. on WIOX 91.3 FM and his newspaper column appears in the Greenville Pioneer from May until October. He serves as the film historian for the Schoharie County Historical Society and produced the historic re-enactment of the Schoharie Free Street Movies Centennial, honoring the village’s unique contribution to the birth of drive-in movies.
