|Home: BigScreen Journal - Drive-in movies making a comeback|
Reuters has published a story about the recent upsurge in the number of drive-in movie theaters with the news that 20 new drive-in cinemas have opened during the past year, bringing the national total to 420.
The article also interviews patrons about why they like the drive-in experience:
Jessica and John Catlin began watching outdoor movies when they were children and they now drive their red pick-up truck to the 54-year-old Hollywood Drive-In Theater in Averill Park, 30 miles from New York state capital Albany, most weekends.
They bring their 2-month-old daughter Jadyn and 9-year-old son Jacob and like the way the drive-in can cater to all ages -- they were able to change Jadyn's diaper in the car, as Jacob sat glued to "Pirates of the Caribbean 2."
"We like being able to be in our own vehicle so we don't disturb others," said John Catlin, adding that he enjoys being out under the stars during summer.
