Going Attractions: The Definitive Story of the American Drive-In Movie

United States | 2014 | April Wright

Going Attractions: The Definitive Story of the American Drive-In Movie

Five thousand drive-in theatres dotted the U.S. during the 1950s. Today only 400 survive. (Fortunately, northeast Ohio still has more than its share.) This new documentary traces the evolution of this venerable American institution from their postwar heyday, through the challenges posed by multiplexes and home video, to today’s tempting offers from predatory real estate developers. Includes shots of “ozoners” in North Ridgeville, Wadsworth, Warren, and Barberton, among others. With Roger Corman.
