Google Doodle Honors Drive-In Movies

You’re likely to go to Google.com today, and if you do, you’ll see that the Google Doodle of the day honors the earliest predecessor to the inflatable movie screen. Of course we’re speaking about drive-in movies! According to this article in the Christian Science Monitor, Richard Hollingshead was the very first person to open a drive-in movie theater in New Jersey, all the way back in 1933! The article also notes that at the height of the phenomenon in the 1950’s, that there were over 5,000 drive-in movies across America.

The Outdoor Movie Screen Replaced the Drive-In Movie

The Christian Science Monitor article also talks about the rich history of Guerilla Cinema, where people throw up an instant outdoor movie theater to watch a movie with family and friends. Although the permanent drive-in movie is a thing of the past, Open Air Cinema’s outdoor movie systems and inflatable movie screens make it possible to have an instant, portable, giant drive-in movie experience in practically any location. In fact, at Open Air Cinema, we’ve seen many individuals across the United States and around the world using our inflatable movie screens and outdoor movie systems to setup drive-in movies for communities everywhere.

There are some great things about using an Open Air Cinema outdoor movie system to setup a drive-in movie theater. Instead of having a built-in permanent structure like in years past, an Open Air inflatable movie screen is portable and can be setup in any location. The seamless white screen and today’s digital projection technology make it possible to have a high-definition or even 3D drive-in cinema experience!

Drive in Movies With an Open Air Cinema Outdoor Movie System

There are many ways to use your Open Air Cinema outdoor movie system, and one of the most popular ways is to host a drive in movies event. In this post we’ll discuss a few steps that will get you on your way to using your OAC outdoor movie system to set up your own Drive in Movies theater. Contact us today at 866-802-8202 to order your drive in movies system today. You can also fill out our online contact form by clicking here, and a friendly Open Air Cinema associate will be in touch with you shortly. We look forward to meeting you and to getting you the drive in movies system you’ve always wanted.

Drive in Movies Made Easy With OAC

With an Open Air Cinema outdoor movie system, you have almost everything you need to start your drive in movies theater. We recommend to go with one of our Elite systems, as you’ll have a large enough inflatable screen (from 20 to 40 feet in width!), and a state of the art audio visual system that will meet the demands of your event. An Open Air Cinema outdoor theater system comes with a very powerful outdoor speaker system, but with a drive in movie, you may not need the full benefits of the speakers that come with this system. However, there are several ways to setup a drive in movies theater. The classic way to produce sound for your drive in movies event is to push the sound recording through a radio frequency, and then to have your guests listen to the movie through the audio in their cars. Many people who produce drive in movies will also supplement their sound with a powerful audio system, and all of our Cinebox™ systems will have you covered. The one thing you’ll need to acquire (and we can provide this for you), is an FM transmitter that is powerful enough to send a signal to all of the vehicles in your audience. Contact us today at 866-802-8202 to speak to an Open Air technician today about starting your own drive in movies theater.

Portable Drive in Movies

One of the main benefits of using an Open Air Cinema outdoor movies system as your drive in movies event is that it is highly portable meaning that you can set it up in virtually any location. As long as there is enough room for your inflatable screen and for your guests in their vehicles to park their cars, you can set up your drive in movies theater. The drive in movies theater of the past required a large permanent structure for the movie screen, and these were expensive to maintain and made the property specific for the function of a drive in movie. But with an Open Air Cinema inflatable movie screen as your drive in movie screen, you can change the location of your drive in movie whenever you’d like, and replacing and maintaining your projection surface is a fraction of the cost of a permanent screen.
