Roy's Black Hills Twin Drive-in in Hermosa, South Dakota has been featured in an article published by the Rapid City Journal:

For 3-year-old Andelyn Krysl, it was hard to tell which was more exciting: the fact that she was bundled up in the back of a pick-up truck with a large bowl of popcorn way past her bedtime, or that she was about to watch her first drive-in movie.Either way, she wasn’t alone in her kid-like anticipation of this season’s opening of Roy’s Black Hills Twin Drive-In movie theater.

As darkness fell over the prairie north of Hermosa on a recent Saturday night and meadowlarks sang a goodnight call, the animated antics of the new hit “The Croods” echoed in the night air.

For owner Roy Reitenbaugh, it was another great night a long time in the making.

“It was a dream for me,” he said of opening the theater, which started with his work at the indoor Hot Springs movie theater. He worked there for 16 years and became friends with owner Gerald Bullard. It was Bullard who first planted the idea of a drive-in movie theater in his head.

“And then it took seven years to find an investor and a location at the same time,” Reitenbaugh said.

The two finally came together a couple of years ago, when Reitenbaugh applied for a building permit with Custer County to become one of only 400 drive-in movie theaters in the country. The theater opened late last summer.
