The idea of drive-in theaters conjures up a Grease-like image of teenagers holed up in their old-timey cars to see a double feature. This routine no longer seems to exist in modern society. In fact, Minnesota has closed over 50 drive-in theaters since “the good ole’ days.” But there is hope for a revival. Plans for a new drive-in theater in Minnesota are in the works as we speak. The theater will be open in a small town in southern Minnesota called Elko, home of the Elko Speedway. In fact, the theater will be situated right next to the Speedway.
