I.In America in the early 1960s they were considered the latest craze. Drive-in cinemas opened everywhere on the outskirts, on the flat land.

Loving couples parked in the back row to fumble, the so-called Lovelane.
A successful model that has also been imitated in Germany in 40 drive-in cinemas, which soon disappeared in the decades that followed.

In order to avoid the Corona requirements, cinema operators across the country are pounding improvised drive-in cinemas in parking lots and other open spaces.
