Among the jobs I had as a teenager some years ago was the job of cleaning up at a drive-in theater. I also mowed the extensive lawn out in front of the giant screen.

This theater, like so many others in the state of Ohio, closed some years ago. When the one I had worked in was damaged by a severe storm, the economics did not justify rebuilding it. There are very few of these old drive-in theaters left here.

They have been replaced with the year-round multi-plex theaters. People don't seem to want to sit in their cars and watch movies, even if the screens were the size of a four-story building.
