  1. It would be nice to see a picture of this drive in movie theater. I am going to guess they set up something in the parking lots? Great idea though. Looks like they are using the River parking lot. No mention of what type of screen, but I am going to guess a projection set up and a really big white screen set up. I wonder how they have the sound set up. Maybe a blue tooth app or simulcast. Normally I don’t bother even trying to go to the Boardwalk because parking is impossible, but wait…now parking and watching a movie are the same….could it be……
