Kings is closed for the season, maybe for good

As we reported recently, the Kings Drive-In (Armona CA) was suffering the effects of vandalism and was hoping to find enough support to keep going. Now there’s a new story from KFSN, Fresno’s news leader, that it may all be for naught.

The report says that switching to a digital projection system would require more than swapping in new equipment. “It’s an old building. They’d have to tear down this wall and rewire the whole building,” said the owner’s daughter, Catherine Graff.

Against that sad backdrop, the Kings has closed for the season, and the owners sound unsure but pessimistic about its chances to reopen in 2013.
