As the days get longer, we’re starting to get another yearly round of appreciation stories for local drive-in theaters. Today’s is from WATN, Memphis’s News Leader, as it celebrates the Malco Summer Drive-In with a brief interview with David Tashie, Malco’s Senior VP of Construction.
I wish that WATN had included more video. Except for Tashie’s remarks, delivered from indoor theater seats, this is really a slide show. And a lot of those slides came from Cinema Treasures‘ contributors. But I think this clip is worth watching just to see the classic Volkswagen beetle atop the Summer Drive-In sign and to hear some of that story from Tashie.
