Sunset Drive-In (NY) switches to digital

Aerial view of the three-screen Sunset Drive-InThe Sunset Drive-In of Middleport NY has finished swapping out film projectors on all three of its screens in favor of improved, expensive digital projectors. That’s the story this week from The Journal Register of Medina NY.

Denise Stornelli, who co-owns the Sunset with her husband Mario, said she has noticed the quality improvement in the picture. I love this sentence from the story: “Stornelli’s son and grandson are helping her and her husband get acclimated to the new computer system that handles the movies.”

And I love the tag line, which probably applies to all drive-in operators. Stornelli said, “We’re hoping for good weather, and good movies.”
