I saw that story on WGAL.com too, and if they are having problems it may be because the place looks so uninviting. Take a look at that screen. I saw it a few months ago and thought “I guess they’ll whitewash it when the season starts.” I drove by again the first week of the season. No change. Looks like it hasn’t been painted in years. It’s those things that make people think you don’t care and once lost, they don’t come back. They show double-features of two first-run movies, at a reasonable price, in what is becoming a heavily-populated area 15 miles southwest of Harrisburg. They’re open only on weekends, and in previous seasons the place is packed every night. If they’re losing money on concessions because people bring their own stuff, well hasn’t that always been an issue for drive-ins? Perhaps they need to look at the service they are providing as an issue. The family that runs it was paid generously for that property. They can certainly afford to have a clean, white screen. As one of only two remaining DI’s in the Harrisburg metro area, they shouldn’t be hurting. I would hate to see Haar’s close, but if they can’t make going there an inviting experience, give it up.

i think that the haar’s staff always give an inviting experience. to whitewash the screen, it would cost thousands of dollars, and if you haven’t realized, its over 55 years old. they’re not gonna give it up until the screen falls. the screen still gives great surface to play movies that everyone loves to go see. and like you said, it must not be causing problems if the place is packed everynight. i really don’t think the place looks uninviting; it looks its age.. so..
