A drive-in theater screening 'Twister' was hit by a twister. Or was it?

In 1996, a powerful storm tore through a Canadian drive-in theatre, destroying a screen. Some witnesses recall it was during a screening of 'Twister,' which includes a scene where a drive-in is destroyed by a twister. The short documentary "Twisted' looks at how memories can be distorted over time.

The curious case of Ontario's Can-View Drive-In was first reported in the local news, then the remarkable story got picked up by national news outlets. Eventually, a number of residents recall being there as the film played, many of whom were young children at the time. The film attempts to get to the bottom of the mystery through interviews with attendees and employees.
