A drive-in theatre or drive-in cinema consists of a large outdoor movie screen, a projection booth, a concession stand, and a large parking area for automobiles. Within this enclosed area, customers can view movies from the privacy and comfort of their cars. Parking slots in drive-in theatres are planned in a way that every car gets a perfect view of the screen. SUVs and taller cars occupy the parking lot’s rear while sedans occupy the parking slots upfront. At the given time movie will start playing on that screen, and one can watch it from the comfort of its car.
