Seems that for the past few years there’s been concern about how much longer the Fort Union Drive-In Theater will be able to remain open. And yet, year in and year out, owner Jeanna DiLucchio manages to produce another season of good movies starting on or near the Memorial Day weekend.
Each year, however, it gets more and more challenging, because the movie industry is moving away from the 35 mm celluloid films that Fort Union depends on. In fact, according to DiLucchio, the industry has set 2013 as a cutoff year for such films. Instead, they’re going digital.
