Cape Breton might have final weekend

Cape Breton sunsetThe Cape Breton Post reports that the Cape Breton Drive-In (Nova Scotia) will open for its final weekend of the season this season. It quotes the guy who operates it as saying that the drive-in has been losing money for 10 years, and might not reopen next spring. It faces the now-typical need for digital projection equipment and the less-typical need for a new screen. (Do digital projectors need different screens?)

A look at Google Maps suggests that this isn’t one of those drive-ins that’s in danger of surrendering to a Walmart or condo development, but I suppose you can’t just keep losing money. The article says the Cape Breton might hold some fundraisers to get enough to pay for the equipment and stuff. Here’s hoping.
