The new generation of drive-in theaters will blow you away

Drive-in theaters had mostly died out by the time I was born, and the closest I ever got to going to one was seeing that scene set in a drive-in from the movie Grease.

But now it seems that the drive-in is being reborn, eco-style. The Harvest Moon theater in Gibson City, Illinois claims to be the world's first wind-powered drive-in (although the website proclaims, "The show goes on even in the Rain, Snow or No Wind!"). Company Angel Wind Energy provides the technology and it only costs the moviegoer $6. Looks like I'll be planning a trip to Illinois...
