When I started doing the MobMov, there were no functioning drive-ins within 40 miles:
Since I started, one has reopened just over 20 miles away:
It’s entirely possible that the buzz over the MobMov is part of the reason for the reopening (I’m probably flattering myself here). Nevertheless, I don’t see us having much of a negative impact on each other. I do one show ever 2-3 weeks, they do 4-6 every night.
I don’t charge, but I have a donation jar out. It’s a hobby, and when I get tired of it or it obviously jumps the shark, I’ll stop doing it.
Latecomer comment from the host of the Berkeley MobMov: I only show Public Domain films or licensed, negotiated films (Like “Thank you for Smoking” last year). We show in a public space with the full approval and occasional presence of the police. Nothing legally cloudy or even translucent in the slightest.
