Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Monday, July 31, 2021

When you think about it, it’s a wonder that the drive-in movie theater took this long to make a comeback.

Movie-goers can take their own food and drink — they don’t have to sneak it in, like many do at indoor theaters — and can also take home comforts like pillows and blankets.

At the [Albany-area] Averill Park Hollywood Drive-In people play baseball and football as they wait for the movie to start, teen-agers are able to congregate away from their families and lawn chairs dot the parking lot.

It’s the American ideal: Combining the comforts of your cherished car with a big-screen moving-picture spectacle. And you can chat away with abandon, and only risk teeing off your friends and family instead of strangers. If only there were a remote control, too.
