From their Facebook page:

Our Projected Re-opening Date Is Friday July 21st. We’ll have screens #1 and #3 open with new digital projection and digital sound. The opening date of screen #2 will be announced soon. While the drive-in still needs a quite a bit of T.L.C., the digital upgrade has been a major expense and should be seen as a good indication of things to come.

As of right now the Winter Drive In is temporarily closed until mid-July. They have received two Christie Digital Projectors and they are currently upgrading the projection booths for screens #1 and #3 and have ordered a 3rd projector for screen #2. No word on screen #4 yet but this is still great news!

They currently have ONE screen functioning as of May 24th, 2017. They are showing Baywatch and last years Jack Reacher movie. They started a Go Fund Me page back in April of 2017.

Due to the depressed economic conditions of the area the Winter Drive-in has not converted to digital projection. They plan to open a couple of screens for the 2016 season with what limited 35mm film is available.

This drive-in is just down the street from me. It closed for several years during the 1990’s. It was originally built with only one large screen. A second screen was added during the late 70’s. The third and fourth screens were added just during the last couple of years.

I remember a lot of good horror movies that played there such as The Gates of Hell, House By the Cemetery, Horror Planet, Nightmares In a Damaged Brain, Pieces, Mortuary, Mother’s Day, Burial Ground, Humanoids from the Deep, Galaxy of Terror, Suspiria, Carrie, The Legend of Boggy Creek, The Food of the Gods, Night of the Zombies,Bloodeaters, My Bloody Valentine, and lots more.
