Just got the sad news from Brian Butko’s Lincoln Highway News blog that the Hi Way Drive In Theatre in Latrobe PA is going to be demolished and replaced by a CVS. So sad!
While we should lament the closing of this classic Lincoln Highway movie theater (and replacement by a ubiquitous chain store) I think this is a perfect kick-in-the-pants reminder to all of us to go out and support our local drive-ins this summer! If they remain profitable and popular it is less likely that they’d feel the need to close, and this is how regular folks like you and I can help them stay open.
If you want to know what Drive In is near YOU – Drive-ins.com is my favorite resource to find out what drive in movie theatres are open across the country. Check to see what’s closest to you and then make plans for some summer fun under the stars! It’s the best way to show these folks that you care that their business remains open.
