The Goochland Drive-In Theater Opens Tonight, August 28, 2009.
From the Drive-In website:
“Drive-in theaters have been a part of rural America since the 1930’s. And in keeping with that tradition, we believe that a new drive-in theater would be a wonderful addition to the make-up of Goochland County. Through technological advancements over the years, the improved picture and sound of drive-in movies provide an outstanding experience — with little, if any, disturbance to the surrounding environment.”
It has been many years since I have been to a drive- in. As a young child I remember going to see Disney’s “The Shaggy Dog” at a drive-in in Northern Virginia and, here in Richmond we went to the South Side Plaza Drive-In for Zombie movies and then again for some other nameless horror films.
We wish the owners who have the vision to open a drive-in in the 21st Century, John & Kristin Heidel, luck and a night with few mosquitoes!
