Drive-in movie theaters make a comeback amid the coronavirus crisis

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said he was considering allowing drive-ins to reopen, as regular theaters stay shut amid the coronavirus lockdown. Drive-in theaters, whose popularity has steadily ebbed since it peaked in the early Sixties, would allow people the ability to watch movies projected on a large screen from the safety of their cars.

I could see this. The A&W with the drive up is pretty popular right now in my town. They hadn't used the stalls in years and now they are talking about hiring skater girls.

I can't see this happening in any city, you'll need a lot of real estate to get the correct angle for car windows these days to see the screen. Where will you find a massive farm land close to any major city.

Tried this. Drove my car into the theatre. They wouldn't give me popcorn, they screamed at me. I honestly just wanted to see Trolls 2: World Tour.

This is actually a very good idea. A drive in movie theater should also be relatively cheap to build since you just need a screen, projector, and a large open space.

They wouldn't have gone away if all the loser progressives had driver's licenses.

I love it grew up going to one for dates and with family. Was a fun way to enjoy ourselves and be able to see the screen without some idiot spoiling the film. Add to that a resurgence in Drive In Restaurants such as Sonic only add to that higher end ones also with cutting edge dishes. A resurgence if true enjoyment in my opinion.
