Drive-in Theaters In The News

    The links on this page are for stories that appear from news agencies or television outlets from around the United States or the world.  Some of these stories are about the wonderful things that make drive-in theaters so memorable.  And some stories that make us cringe with horror when the occasional bad things happen too, closings, storm damage etc.  The newest stories will be at the top as the older ones will be pushed farther down.  If at anytime there are broken links to these stories, please let me know.  I will check from time to time but your help is appreciated.  I would like to thank Bruce Shinabarger & Justin West for the links to these great stories!
