STORY

The 49'er Drive-in Theatre will once again open soon for the season, and is approaching celebrating 60 years of movie magic. The theater was founded in 1956 and served as a hot spot for families to gather on warm summer evenings.

New this year is a digital projector, a move that will allow the drive-in theater to continue to show the latest flicks out of Hollywood. Named one of USA Today's "Top 10 Drive-Ins," The 49'er is a favorite among region residents who enjoy the nostalgia of drive-in movie theaters. The drive-in has nearly 20,000 likes on its Facebook page and updates movie-goers with the latest events and flicks scheduled to appear.
