Smaller in size and no longer in the 2.35:1 ratio for wide screen “Cinemascope” formatted movies without cropping top and bottom or the sides.

Vance Haar and the family were the owners of the drive-in, as well as the adjacenet auction house and roller rink.

Haar’s leases its land, and that landowner has put up a For Sale sign. Nobody has been able to get the landowner on record, but Haar’s’s (how do you type that?) owner Vickie Hardy said she was “completely caught off-guard” by the development. WHTM ran a news story with plenty of great views of the drive-in.

Giant Food Stores bought the Drive In and adjacent Auction House property from the Haar’s family heirs in 2003 for 2.9 Million Dollars which came with a long term leaseback back to the Haar’s family to operate the Drive In. Giant Foods overpaid to keep Walmart out since Giant Foods had just opened a brand food store adjacent to the Drive In. Walmart subsequently found a nearby tract on which to build ….. which is why the Drive In in now listed for sale by Giant Foods. The asking price is 2.2 Million. If the Haars family cares that much why dont they repurchase?

There is already a Change.org petition called “Save Haars Drive-Movie Theatre”

And yet again, the big-box money A-holes take another piece of our memories. Where was GIANT foods when my buddies and I were at the Drive-In watching the movies we embraced and loved! Getting ready to take over and run their F-ing robot through the aisles.
