As TV caught the attention of American families, the drive-in began to decline steadily towards the end of the decade. The “drive-in teenager” went to college. Family movies failed to attract audiences, and studios still charged extra for first-hand films. Many drive-ins become obsolete. They lacked the money to fix the once impressive screen tower or the wiring that plagued their sound system. The invention of radio sound in the 1970s অর্থাৎ that is, sound broadcasts on local radio frequencies সাহায্য helped to shut down many, but the urban sprawl of the city picked up the weak one by one. Built on the edge of the main metropolis, drive-in land became valuable for developers. Improvements in the theater became casualties. Many survivors turned to pornographic programming in the 1970s to pay their bills. Once VCR1 landed in the early 1980s, the masses began to shut down and the drive-in disappeared.
Drive-in movie theater has survived into the 21st century as a symbol of the past. Work is underway in a small number of theaters, which provide a fancy experience for patrons who are still bold for awkward viewing lines due to bugs, bold sound and the proliferation of large SUVs and hatchback trunks. During the Drive-In Peak in 1958, more than 4,000 drive-ins dotted the American landscape. As of 2020, there are only 321 remaining in the United States, a number that has remained stable over the past few years.
During the COVID epidemic, drive-in theaters experienced a small renaissance Since movie fans resort to the only method displayed for them after the play is closed. In a real sense, they saw double the bill of the familiar movie and even rented some traditional themed B-movie that allowed the drive-in past. Some business forecasters see that coronavirus flow and flow have left an effective business-in-drive for the future. Independent theaters have even given new life to abandoned urban parking lots as unfamiliar drive-in auditoriums.
As long as there are drive-ins, for the past they will be floating by this nostalgia পরিবার for the family to do something, something outside of the normal routine. They will never again be the cultural hub or represent the freedom of adolescence. We have 70 televisions and a 9-speaker sound system in our house and 4,500-lumen projectors in the back of our house and our own blow-up movie screen. Consumers have embraced technology drive-ins, but people are going out to see a movie under the stars. It connects us to past generations and provides a socially distant activity that symbolizes normalcy.
Over the years, I’ve had a handful of drive-in double features and each usually offers its own challenges and frustrations. (How can I turn off the interior car lights * and * keep the radio on when the rear hatch is open? / Do I park my little SUV all the way there?Even after all that, I remember every experience because I thought I would become an active participant in a great American tradition. No one appears in the drive-in because you want a first-rate theatrical experience or you want to focus your attention on a great movie. You take yourself to some remote parking lot because modern life (especially during epidemics) becomes monotonous. The drive-in still contains some of that old magic, if you are willing to accept the terms of the contract সেখানে there will be bugs, you will be annoyed by something and not understand all the dialogue.
And yet, we still love it. For one reason or another, the drive-in theater is held by the court.
To celebrate the drive-in and its singular place in the history of movie running, I’ve come up with a few dual features, some inspired by my own drive-in experience, and some inspired by Ozoner’s history. If you have a drive-in nearby, plan a trip to hug at the end of the summer. As the air cools and the sun sets before midnight, there is never a better time to watch a movie than under the stars in the sky and under the stars on the screen.
