HONG KONG, CHINA — A new drive-in has opened that is attempting to bring people in by talking up its spaciousness.
Touted as a first for Hong Kong, The Drive-In movie theater was set to open its doors Thursday, banking that locals in this densely populated city will appreciate a rare break from congested surroundings and a taste of Americana.
Backed by an anonymous foreign businessman, The Drive-In features two 25-meter (82.5-feet) by 14-meter (46.2-feet) screens and 200 parking spots. It is set to open to the public with two screenings of the Japanese movie “Nana 2'‘ Thursday evening, Iris Wong, a spokeswoman for the movie theater, said.

Screens are too narrow. Sounds like they got the dreaded 2:1 screens.
