The first drive-in movie theater dates back to June 6th, 1933. Later in the 1950’s, as many as 4000 drive-in cinemas were operating in the US. In recent times, well pre-Covid, only a fraction were still open (around 300 throughout the US), and today we are happy to announce that two of them are reopening in the Bay Area for a full Americana experience!
Not fear of poor image quality as per the West Wind company itself “We were one of the first drive-in theatres to fully embrace technology with the installation of the largest digital projectors available. Now all West Wind Drive-Ins project a crystal-clear digital image on screens so big they dwarf the ones you’ll find in a typical walk-in theatre”.
Drive-in cinemas are re-opening under strict operating rules of social distancing but it should fill like a little breeze of freedom. Trolls World Tour, among other movies, is showing this week in both locations. Sounds like a family outing!
Not yet in San Francisco, there is one in Concord and one in San Jose.
