Description

One night only! To celebrate National Drive-In Day we will be showing a premiere screening of Back To The Drive-In, a new documentary about drive-ins and drive-in culture directed by April Wright. $5 per person or $10 per car load.  Come on out and celebrate and support the Skyline. Gate opens at 6pm movie starts at dark.

When the pandemic hit, drive-ins were suddenly the only safe venue in town, with press coverage about how drive-ins are “back,” and how they are thriving. But this documentary goes behind the headlines to learn the truth, spending a whole night with 11 very different drive-ins in 8 states all over the country, from preparations before the customers arrive, to selling tickets, opening the snack bar, and getting the movie on screen, we discover these family-owned businesses are actually struggling to survive. This doc is about authentic drive-ins and the passionate people who run them, but more broadly it highlights questions about the future of the theatrical experience, and the challenges of many small businesses wondering whether they will survive and make it to the other side of the pandemic. The film is 105 minutes. It was shot in 4K during the summer of 2021
