While movie theaters were closed and social distancing became the norm, drive-in theaters saw a resurgence in interest. The Capri Drive-In remained open well into December of 2020 and the demand was there for them to continue through winter. The thing is, the main building that housed the snack bar and restrooms does not have heat. The longtime family business was not built for the winter months so having pipes freeze was a real concern.
While theaters have once again been allowed to reopen, there are still those who need to maintain stricter health practices amid the ongoing pandemic. Whether you enjoy being able to watch films in the great outdoors or just enjoy the nostalgia a classic drive-in like Capri has to offer, this is great news.
