Maybe it’s a rough form of adaptive reuse with an assist from technology. Haar’s Drive-In’s big screen, stands near York County, Pa.’s Dillsburg, showed captured a Jimmy Buffett concert in Texas, rather than a recently released flick. The drive-in, York County’s last and one of the few in the region, installed digital equipment last year, positioning itself for such shows. Interestingly, the Cumberland Drive-In near Cumberland County’s Newville is letting its audience know that its last 35mm show is set for June 26. Then it will switch to digital. Interestingly, Haar’s opened in 1952; Cumberland in 1953. Also of interest: Last picture showplace: Haar’s Drive-In, York County’s last outdoor theater, has gone digital and Old Lincoln Drive In Theater, west of York, Pa.: ‘No sitter problems, No parking worries’.

Other neat stuff from all over … .
