In case anyone interested might have missed the first announcement—
Drive-in Theaters in the Regional American Landscape
Sponsored by Flanders Nature Center

Woodbury Public Library, 269 Main Street South, Woodbury, CT 06798
The presentation will feature photographs of about 100 of the 250+ drive-in theaters I’ve photographed over the past twenty years across the country. The talk will give a brief history and timeline of the drive-in, along with extensive stories and anecdotes collected from the scores of theater owners I’ve interviewed in the course of the project.
As I was shooting this window display, a young man walking down the sidewalk stopped and asked what I was taking pictures of—in a friendly, completely non-belligerent way. I answered, "anything that looks interesting." He said, "then be sure to go around to the back alley behind these buildings, there's all sorts of interesting stuff back there."
