Amazon's Original Film The Vast of Night Will Screen in Drive-In Theaters Across the Country

Drive-in theater experiences have surged in popularity amid the COVID-19 outbreak in the U.S.

Though extremely popular in the ‘50s and ‘60s, the number of locations for drive-in theaters, once in the thousands, has since dwindled. There are now just 305 left in the U.S., according to the Los Angeles Times.

Since the coronavirus, however, drive-in theaters owners have seen an uptick in ticket sales, with Beau Bianchi, owner of the Paramount Drive-In Theaters in Lakewood, California telling the Times it’s been “a welcome relief for families and adults looking for a little getaway from the house.”

“We’ve been trying to let people know that we have a safe environment and [offer] a little escape,” he said.

The Vast of Night will debut across the country on May 15 and 16.
