CHARLOTTE'S DRIVE-IN MOVIES Charlotte, North Carolina
View from the rear of the booth. Notice our best friend the portable AC! On summer nights in NC temperatures in the booth could exceed 100 degrees. During deconstruction of the Drive-In we found evidence of melted grease in between projector chase and sound chase. Oh and forget trying to swap the aperture plate in between shows with your bare hands! Humidity was a major foe too!
