According to a story in the Hanford (CA) Sentinel, the Kings Drive-In in Armona is in danger of shutting down. The problem isn’t digital conversion or Walmart, it’s persistent vandalism. Which reminds me of all the signs I see in drive-in rest rooms reminding patrons that vandalism can kill this fun avenue of entertainment. (You paid to get in, didn’t you?)
Be sure to check out the story just for the photos if nothing else. And it’s got a nice ending that describes how the Kings’ fans have pitched in to ensure that the drive-in can stay alive.
