Survival of the drive-in movie theater

At the height of their popularity, nearly 4,000 drive-in movie theaters entertained wide-eyed crowds across America. Today, there are fewer than 400. Those left behind are kept alive by a dedicated breed of individuals—folks who understand that going to the drive-in is much more than just catching the latest blockbuster flick—it's a social event that is shared with family and friends on a beautiful summer evening amidst the fresh air and the wistful aroma of hotdogs, french fries and popcorn.

While the drive-in theater has seen its share of changes over the years, movie-goers still can't seem to get enough of this one-of-a-kind experience. Join My Generation  on a trip down memory lane to celebrate cinema under the stars.
