A Great Documentary of The Drive-In Theatre....
4 March 2003 | by (Dallas, Texas) – See all my reviews

This is a Great History of the Drive-in Theatres. Some real good old footage is included along with some great pictures of Drive-Ins of the past. I've met Don & Susan Sanders. Some real nice people. Right at an Hour long. I take pictures of Drive-ins (and old Walk-Ins) so this interested me greatly!. I tip my hat to Don & Susan and to all that had a part in making this documentary!! Thanx!
