This was a 700 car drive-in operated by the Budco chain in the 1950’s, 1960’s and 1970’s. Budco was bought by AMC. The theatre was closed in July 1987. The drive-in was reopened in late-July, 2004 and a second screen was added in 2008.

Saw The Simpsons Movie and 1408 this summer – my first drive-in experience! Nice big screen and all, and I like that the sound comes through the car stereo, but every loud noise from the movie caused the sound to shift into mono for a bit.

Anyway, both movies were 2.35 widescreen which filled the screen exactly…I think seeing 1.85 movies would be distracting with the blank space at each side…

I saw Red eye and the 40 Year Old Virgin there a few years back. My wife and I had a great time. All in all, it was a cheap date night. Good sound through the car speakers. Pretty big crowd on a beautiful evening. Glad to see it’s back. The long lines between features at the women’s bathroom brought back memories. I also liked the old advertisments and 3 Stooges shorts.
