Adding 300+ Drive In Theatres to Spots – [RSS Readers Bear with Me!]

Posted on: July 4, 2014


Hey gang –

As you know I’m committed to making Retro Roadmap THE resource for cool vintage places, and this means that on  very rare occasions I’ll be adding a lot of spots to the map in bulk.

I usually don’t have time to do this because I work full-time outside of Retro Roadmap HQ but I’ve promised myself to devote time over the holiday weekend to add as many Drive In Movie Theatres to that category as possible.

With each one of those appearing as a Spot on the Retro Roadmap it’s possible that folks who subscribe to getting updates with services like Bloglovin or the RSS feed may be temporarily swamped by all of these additions. PLEASE bear with me, as once they are up there this will benefit everyone looking for one of the last remaining Drive Ins in their area.

While I would normally never add anything to the map that hasn’t been vetted or visited, I occasionally make exceptions for places I KNOW deserve to be on the Retro Roadmap, but I will never have time to visit them all. I’d hate for any of them to close simply because I wasn’t able to share them on the map so people could support.

 

Thanks and happy 4th of July!

    I’ll start by saying “thank you” for all the wonderful information you share. It’s greatly appreciated. 🙂 I don’t know if you have our one remaining drive-in here in the Denver area on your list of those to add. So, just in case you don’t, here is a news story that aired just a few days ago…pertaining to the 88 Drive-In Theater that is in Commerce City, CO.

    They also have a facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/88drivein

    Whew…now I know it’ll be added. haha. I really hope they raise enough money to buy the digital equipment they need to keep up with todays’ technology. Thank you! Happy 4th of July. 🙂

    I just shared the info about the 88 Drive-In in Colorado. I just found a neat site that is about a documentary on Drive-Ins. I thought you might be interested in using it.

    Thanks again. 🙂

    • Thanks so much Donna! Going through the list alphabetically by state, and halfway through California now. If I didn’t have to go out tonight because it’s the 4th of July and all, I’d honestly be staying inside working on this all night 🙂

    • Yes! Thanks for the link and I actually made sure to see the documentary before we did our first Retro Roadmap Video at the oldest Drive In in the country! Some really interesting tid-bits in there. Check it out if you get a chance!
