Hi, Ken! It's just going to be a "mini" drive-in that two or three people can run. Probably around 200 cars. our focus will be on the food. It will have a two sided snack bar, with one side near the street. It could be open all day to sell Pizza , soft serve frozen custard, Wings, Sticky Buns, etc We could have miniature golf or a corn maze..

What size screen will work with a 100 car drive-in. The throw will be around 300', but I know that it's not that important.I'd like to go less than 50' to be cost effective (& brighter). Thanks, Crazy Bob.

I think a 50 footer would work pretty well.

My back two fields hold about 250 cars each, and their screens are 60 feet.

American Cinema Equipment (Portland) is pretty well connected, as far as digital equpment pricing and availability is concerned. There are probably others, but on my side of the country, they are the biggest outfit I know of.

Yes Jack ACE is a great outfit. In the last decade Scott Hicks has given me a number of bids on projects I thought were going to come through. They didn't. Next time Scott may not believe me.
