From the Archive: Drive-in postcards

Once you build and outfit your drive-in, you’ll need to make sure you have keepsakes and momentos for people to buy. Here are three great postcards from the American Theatre Architecture Archive.

    I’m in my 7th summer photographing for my book project, “Vintage Movie Theaters of the American West.” Tonight I’m in Hastings, Nebraska. I started the summer with a shorter 3000 mile trip through Northern California, Oregon, Idaho, and Nevada. This one will be around 6000 miles. Most of the drive-ins I photograph are in ruins. I do all 16 Western states, mostly small towns and staying off the Interstates. I plan to drive till the wheels fall off and burn, and just for the record, I’ve done it all in my faithful ’03 Honda Accord EX!
