Drive-in theaters back from the dead

A few years ago, it felt as though drive-in theaters were fading into oblivion, if they weren't there already. From the 1970s to the '90s, thousands closed, often due to rising land values that were worth much more as built-up condos and/or mini-malls than empty parking lots with an adjacent bigscreen.

But now, with the number of theaters holding steady -- 636 screens are currently operating at 383 locations -- drive-in operators are finding a steady business can be had, although not without its challenges.
