The Empire Drive-In, created by Jeff Stark and Todd Chandler, salvages wrecked or abandoned cars. This one of a kind drive-in is surrounded by junkyard cars, which people can sit in or on. The speakers in each of these cars are used to transmit sound (which is how traditional drive-ins work.)
Though the Empire Drive-In may not look glamorous, it provides movie-goers with a great experience. It's not easy to find drive-ins anymore, but they have a nostalgic quality that makes them unbeatable. Stark and Chandler are hoping that their junkyard drive-in will help to spark discussions on planned obsolescence and car culture in general.
This clever cinematic project is only a temporary installation, but it's sure to be popular while it lasts.
