Drive-in is a gem

Spotlight 88 in Pennsylvania ended business as a drive-in after a tornado struck in1985. The owners put up a sign: “Now-showing: Gone with the Wind.” 

The La Grande Drive-In was almost gone with the wind too. It had to keep up with the technological storm or close. When it opened its season Friday with its new Dolby digital projection system, it showed a commitment to keeping a La Grande tradition since 1952 alive. It is one of four drive-in theaters left in Oregon. Drive-in theaters peaked in popularity in late 1950s and the early 1960s. About 25 percent of movie screens were drive-ins. Today, that number has been reduced to 1.5 percent of movie screens.

People who haven’t should support the drive-in, one of the things that makes La Grande special.
