Fun note from the July 2, 1962 issue of BoxOffice:

HASTINGS, NEB.β€” Fred Teller of the Hastings Drive-In is convinced he must hold the national record for the lowest per-person admission, a record established on a recent buck night.

Teller said a man approached him and asked how many persons would be admitted for $1.

β€œAll that are in one vehicle,” Teller answered.

The man left and returned shortly in a bus loaded with 27 Iowa school children and three adults on a tour of South-Central Nebraska. He paid $1, drove in and parked the bus sideways so all could see the picture.

Teller said he figured the per-person cost something like 3β…“ cents, a record he has no desire to break."
