A while back, there was a mediateacher.net post about a tradition of American moviegoing that combines many of the cultural values of the United States: cars and mobility, family entertainment, take-out food, and entrepreneurship: the Drive-In. Despite what many predictions forecast, there are still independently run theaters all across the country, at least those that have been able to navigate the conversion to digital projection. Depicted through these images is a visit to one for a recent family outing to see Zootopia and Finding Dory. The story of the Northfield Drive-In (which straddles Massachusetts and New Hampshire) is a very interesting tale of media economics, technology, and moviegoing. Right here and now, the story of a Friday night at the drive-in will be told in pictures.
This is a PACKED house. Back rows here at #9.
A uniquely American tradition.
