Drive-in movie theaters disappearing

By Willis Webb


Every time I see a news story about movie theaters in a newspaper, it resurrects memories. Small town theaters in particular evoke tales of yesteryear. For a period of time, the theater business was a sideline and a source of income in those younger years when I tried to blend love, marriage, a career and a desperate need for enough money to support the mix. While newspapering has always been a seven-day-a-week undertaking, that brief venture into theater-dom added seven nights a week to the schedule. Thankfully, I was not in the drive-in theater segment, but the current state of the movie theater business in general, small towns in particular, rouses my interest in seeing how those in the business are managing to survive.
