Drive-In Theaters: A Uniquely American Institution
Mar 26 @ 11:00 am – 12:30 pm
Going to the movies is tightly woven into the fabric of entertainment history worldwide. However, going to the movies at a drive-in theater is much more popular in the United States than in any other country. Perhaps it’s because the drive-in movie is truly an American invention. Over the years, we’ve seen the changing fortunes for drive-ins, but we still appreciate their unique place in American culture that brought cars, stars, and movie-goers together.
Join us for a “Live” Look at Drive-Ins
For our next AACA Museum Live webcast, Executive Director Jeffrey Bliemeister presents “Drive-In Theaters: An American Institution.” Offered virtually via Zoom or onsite in the Museum’s own drive-in theatre, the program covers, the history, uniqueness, popularity, and changing landscape of these iconic open-air venues. Also, Tim Neal, manager of the Sky Vu Drive-In (Gratz, PA), joins the discussion. Sky Vu has been in business since 1948. Tim offers a unique perspective from an owner/operator’s viewpoint.
Jeff Bliemeister’s onsite presentation is included with paid general admission to the Museum. You can purchase your admission ticket now or at the door when you arrive. Space is limited.
