The 1950s and 1960s, drive-ins began to spread like wildfire, increasing to more than 4,000 locations. The new sites
may have begun as a venue to watch films, but interestingly, the main films that were shown were mostly considered to
be B films. Patrons enjoyed them regardless and remained enthralled with what they saw – so much so that the drive-
in became a part of American culture where people came together to socialize with each other. It was an experience
all of its own making and is today is considered an important part of Americana.
Today there are fewer than 400 drive-ins are currently in operation across the United States.
A movie watched under the stars and while breathing in the fresh air. Audience members could even get out of the car
to stretch their legs and still hear and see the movie. The environment provided much more freedom than an indoor
theater, and people appreciated the intermissions. It was a magical experience and the memory of childhood drive-ins
still linger in many peoples memories.In an attempted to re-ignite that drive-in passion, Polyscope Media Group LLC. in conjunction with The B Movie
Celebration and Avery Battles, are announcing the launch of the 2013 B Movie Road Tour.

“Last year I curated the B Movie Celebration and people kept complaining that the location of the Celebration was
too far , but wouldn’t it be great to get emerging and classic B Movies in their town” Says Battles “This was our
inspiration for the Road Tour, our goal pure and simple is to making films and film going fun again”

The Road Tour heads off the first week of July and will initially feature the following line-up.
