Artifacts & More

This page is dedicated to the preservation of drive-in theater artifacts that I believe have historical significance. These artifacts may include anything from drive-in theater flyers to posters, ticket stubs and the like. Usually a piece of advertising for a local drive-in theater. Of course one main criteria is that the piece has to be pretty rare and most likely a one-of-a-kind item. Also, the age of the item must be from 1933-1939. I consider these the rare years for drive-in theaters as there were only about 95 drive-ins in the entire country by the start of World War II. So sit back and let's take a trip through time and look at some long forgotten pieces of early drive-in history.
