Good Luck. This is great to read about. AND they are adding a screen. So much for all the talk about drive-ins being dead in the water. We need more like this.

The Flint Journal reports on this at View link which quotes me and mentions adding a fourth screen next year.

That’s agreed, movie534. However, while this is great to read about, it’s only a drop in the bucket. It’ll be a long time, I’m afraid, before one can actually say that drive-in theatres are making a comeback. Let’s hope they make a comback all over the country and not just simply play the schlockier films of today, either.
