We're Getting A New Drive-In Theater

When you think of L.A., you think of driving and the movies. And while multiplexes have been the main destination for a family movie night for a long time now, a developer in Paramount is betting that there's room there for a drive-in.

Curbed reports that Modern Development is turning a dormant drive-in theater in the city of Paramount back into a movie destination after years of use as a swap meet. Prices will be $9 for adults and $3 for kids to see second run movies. Compare that to ticket prices and parking at a mall theater and it seems like a pretty good deal.

The swap meet will continue in the space as well.

Of course, the Paramount drive-in won't be the only one in the region. There's the Pacific Theaters Vineland drive-in in the City of Industry, and the Electric Dusk drive-in in downtown L.A.
