10:15 – Drive-In Movie Memories
Drive-In Movie Memories is a film celebration of drive in movie theaters, one of America’s greatest symbols of youth, freedom and the automobile. What started as the business venture an auto parts dealer to make some easy money accidentally became a magical place where romance, fun and a sense of community flourished. The centerpiece of Drive-In Movie Memories is a vast collection of historical photos and footage from the mid ’30s until today, including clips from classic drive-in movies of all genres: westerns, romance, horror, and the teenage beach party movies of the ’60s. Interviews with film critic Leonard Maltin and other film historians add context while stories from B-movie actors, including Beverly Garland, the “queen” of B-movies, provide entertaining “insider” views of the era in its heyday.
