    Last drive-in theater around here closed around 20 years ago.

    Though I was driving around in the back country to avoid the interstate a few days ago and happened upon a two screen drive-in in the middle of construction. Not really sure why they picked a narrow pothole ridden country road to build it on, but I'll check it out when its finished.

    Heh all the old ones were built on major highways.

    But they may be on to something. Highly noticable and accessable properties are very expensive. If you've got something that unique in this day and age, you don't need people to find it by happenstance.
