Re: Another Sad Day for Drive-In Fans
- Well I found another article on the Western Aire. It seem the family
hasnt even listed the property for sale. It is just economic reality
setting in. Another fact that was pointed out was the movie
distributors unwillingness to co-operate with the owners of Drive-
Ins. Now really for the sake of a great American (and Canadian)
tradition are a few movies played on a few outdoor screens really
gonna kill Hollywood.
Its with a tear in my eye that I am posting the next 2 articles in
Photos under Misc. Check them out.
