A short documentary about the classic American Drive-in Theater. Reaching its peak popularity during the 1950’s, drive-in theaters provided a cheap way for Americans to watch movies in rural areas. The drive-in provided a space for the community to come together and enjoy cinema under the stars. The rise of multiplex movie theaters and ever changing technology has caused drive-ins around the country to close their lots.
In this documentary, drive-in theater owner Lee Burgess discusses the struggles of owning a drive-in theater in the 21st century.
