In 1933, Richard Hollingshead invented the drive-in movie theater, a cinema for Americans infatuated with the automobile. For seventy years, the drive-in has asserted its place in American culture as a mecca for families and restless teenagers. Their popularity peaked in 1957 when 5000 drive-ins illuminated the American landscape. Today, the "passion pit with pix" has become a dinosaur. Drive-In Blues celebrates the drive-in and laments its decline. A blank white screen looms behind interviews with old-time theater owners who reminisce about the heyday of the drive-in and confront the reality of a dying business. Laced with unusual archival trailers, the tone of the film swings between camp and nostalgia.
