APTOPIX Digital Drive Ins
In this photo made Thursday, June 26, 2014, Jen and Philip Mason, along with their sons Skyelar, left, and Trysten, watch the previews 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.
