APTOPIX Digital Drive Ins
In this photo made Thursday, June 26, 2014, Mike and Naomi Gibel, and their children Norah, 4, left, and Issak, 7, watch a movie from the back of a pick-up truck at the Saco Drive-In in Saco, Maine. Many in the movie industry feared the need to convert to digital could be the death knell for drive-ins, but drive-in operators are finding creative ways to afford the switch. Drive-in movie theater operators say more than 200 of the remaining 348 drive-ins in the country have made the expensive conversion from film to digital, which typically costs more than $70,000.
