KC drive-in movie theaters saved with digital projection upgrade

Early this year, the future of the I-70 and Twin drive-ins and their six screens looked bleak. Deadlines loomed for an expensive jump from film to digital projection, which movie studios were requiring, and it seemed a pretty good bet that the two drive-ins wouldn’t open after their usual winter hiatus. But a new owner stepped up and made the projection switch and other upgrades. This weekend the I-70 and Twin are celebrating a grand opening with free popcorn.
