Drive-In Movies

The last place you would expect to see a Drive-In Movie theater is midtown Manhattan. This unexpected event concept, created, designed and produced by Glenn Mahoney, provided the public the opportunity to watch an outdoor movie while sitting in classic convertibles. The design was traditional theater with red carpet and velvet rope meets Drive-In. There were 1,000 seats for guests as they watched first run independent films, including “Garden State” and “Napoleon Dynamite,” on a 40’ tall by 60’ wide projection screen. The slope of the famous Channel Gardens provided a theater like set-up allowing each seat unobstructed views. Sections of seats were separated with surround sound so the native sounds of New York City would not overpower the film.
