If you see that on a reader board in a theater , you know where they got their start. The drive ins that closed and were not converted to some form of the homogeneous American landscape were often the victims of poor management, inability to convert to digital, or the rise of the ubiquitous multiplex.
Urban and exurban sprawl is a substantial undercurrent leading to the demise of drive -ins. It takes a lot of land to run a drive-in theater , and their business model often meant charging less per customer — sometimes they ‘d offer a flat fee or discounted rate for just the car’s entry, no matter the occupancy.
How does a drive -in movie theater make money ? You bring in income by selling tickets to your films and through the sales of concession products. Most of your profit is generated through food and drink sales as film distributors take a serious portion of ticket sales for new films.
