Plot: Once a vibrant part of American culture, drive-ins reached their peak in the late 1950s with almost 5,000 dotting the nation. Although drive-ins are experiencing a resurgence, today less than 400 remain. In a nation that loves cars and movies, why haven’t they survived? April Wright’s lovingly made documentary–filled with archival images of hundreds of open and closed drive-in theaters and interviews with theater owners and cinema luminaries such as Roger Corman–attempts to answer that question.

Nope. The Drive-In Ain’t Dead Yet!
Believe it, or not, Drive-Ins have been around (at least in the USA) since 1933. But it wasn’t until the late-1940s (and especially throughout the 1950s) that Drive-Ins really flourished, big-time, all across America, and beyond.
It is estimated that in 1958 there were something like 5000 Drive-Ins going strong all across the States. While, in comparison, today, there are less than 400 still in existence.
Through stills, vintage film clips, and interviews with historians and Drive-In owners, alike, this fairly interesting documentary moves its story along, decade-by-decade, giving the viewer a thorough history of this phenomenon known as the Drive-In.
From Drive-Ins having to compete with TV in the 1950s, to the invasion of mall cinemas in the 1970s, to the video explosion and cable TV in the 1980s – The survival of the Drive-In (in the last 30 years, or so) has certainly taken quite a beating – But, according to what the experts say – “They aren’t dead, yet!”.
So, with that said, who knows what the future holds for the Drive-In?
