New drive-in theater to open in Davenport this summer

DAVENPORT, IA — Randy and Terri Lorenz will be opening “Reel to Reel” this summer. It’s been 20 years since the last drive-in in the Quad Cities closed.

A nostalgic summer pastime will be available in the Quad-Cities this summer.

Randy and Terri Lorenz and their grown son, Arron, found that a trip to the drive-in movies was a trip indeed — to such places as Maquoketa or Grandview, Iowa.

To bring the experience closer to home for Quad-Citians, they plan to open a two-screen drive-in theater at the west edge of Davenport, just off West Locust Street and north of West Lake Park.

So according to the youtube video, this drive-in is starting out from scratch. A brand spanking new drive-in. Good Luck with it. I wish we could get them back here in jersey, like we did years ago. The only we have is over 2 hours away.

It would be cool to get more of them back here in the Bay State, also. The only drive-in here in the Bay State is in Mendon, MA, which is way west of us, out in the central part of the state, really.
