photo by MichiganDriveIns, used by permission reported recently that the US-23 Drive-In (Flint MI) reopened for another season last Friday. General manager Johny Thomas says that the US-23 will be fully converted to digital projection on its three screens by the first of July, and according to MLive, Thomas has a novel method of paying for all those new projectors. He’s raised ticket prices by $1 per person this year.

The story also includes an 11-photo gallery of 2012 opening day photos from The Flint Journal. (I love the photo of the really big popcorn popper.) So go check it out!
