Drive In Lights Out
In this July 20, 2013 photo, a local police officer directs traffic lined up on Main Street into the Skyview drive-in theater as the gates open, in Lancaster, Ohio. Patrons regularly start lining up three hours before the gates open so they can grab a good parking spot. The latest threat to the existence of drive-in theaters is the conversion from 35mm film to digital prints and the expense involved in converting projectors to the new format. (AP Photo/Jay LaPrete)
