Drive-In Movie Memories DVD

Director Kurt Kuenne fashions a nostalgic tribute to one of the most iconic American traditions with his festival-favorite documentary DRIVE-IN MOVIE MEMORIES. The brainchild of a New Jersey businessman, drive-in movie theaters first appeared in the 1930s but rose to eminence in the '50s and '60s with the concurrent rise of teen culture and America's love affair with the automobile. Though the growing ubiquitousness of television and VCRs caused a decline in their popularity by the '70s and '80s, drive-ins continue to enjoy a mini-renaissance fueled by the particular pleasures offered by this American institution. Kuenne chronicles the drive-in's rise, decline, and comeback through archival footage and interviews with devotees like Leonard Maltin, Samuel Arkoff, and Joe Bob Briggs.
