An aerial photo of a drive-in can be a useful research tool when the address or location of the drive-in is unknown. I’ve used aerial photos in conjunction with topo maps and Google maps to find a location for a number of drive-ins. Since we already know the location of this drive-in the photo is unnecessary and I doubt that it was being posted for research purposes.
So why are these photos being posted to numerous pages for drive-in theaters that already have an address? I’ve asked this question multiple times and no reply has been given by the individual posting these photos. Maybe Ross or Patrick will have better luck getting an answer to this question than I’ve had. Posting an aerial photo to a drive-in listing that has no address is fine but flooding this website with these photos should not be permitted. Cinema Treasures isn’t a dumpster. If this is now an acceptable practice on Cinema Treasures, then it has become a website that I no longer wish to contribute to.
This is another night photo of the Laurelhurst.
