To all our friends of the 56 Auto:

I've been advised by my film buyer that 35mm prints are being
made available for all the films thru May and June so we are
planning on re-opening April 25 if the field dries out and
repairs can be made to the screen. I thought we made it thru the winter unscathed...
but last weeks winds have taken out two panels in the screen...
With a structure that's over 50 years old and exposed to the elements...
I guess we've come to expect it!

 Many theaters nationally have closed do the need to upgrade to digital, and a great number have already made
their conversions including the Bay and Black River in our area.
unfortunately we work on a tighter profit margine than them and have been exploring the many aspects of this situation,
including alternate financing and the like.
Please stay tuned for further updates.



here's a few interesting links i came across for your wintertime enjoyment

here's a quick handy list of the drive ins still open in New York

and a link to a number of north country drive ins open and closed.
It's Amazing how many there were at one time...

and a link to a national article on 10 more that didn't make it.
another link to some artsy drive in pictures...although somewhat sad
