The superior video quality on the DVD makes this version a lot better. Terrific documentary.
Seeing ANY movie at the Drive-In will always make it more memorable and enjoyable. A fascinating look at the rise and fall of Drive-In movie theaters. There are currently only about 350 Drive-In theaters that remain in operation in the United States compared to a peak of about 4,000 in the 1950's. And every couple of years, new ones still open.
This documentary even discusses the importance of avoiding buying a car that has Forced Lighting. Forced Lighting is a car that does not allow you to turn off the Daytime Running Lights. General Motors is particularly bad on this, Toyota particularly good. Most better cars do let you turn off the Daytime Running Lights, but verify before buying.
I really enjoyed all of the technical details in making a Drive-In movie theater. It's not as easy or simple as it would appear.
One of the reasons we have so many great Science Fiction movies from the 1950s is the fact that Hollywood was making something, anything, to get the teenagers into Drive-Ins.
By this great DVD and support your local Drive-In.
I'm very happy to have this excellent DVD in my 3000 DVD/Blu-ray collection.
