Tuesday, June 6, 1933

Today in English we finished "Julius Caesar" by William Shakespeare. Luckily, we do not have any test on it.

The world's first drive-in movie opens in Camden, New Jersey, on June 6, 1933
(Note: This is the reverse side of the movie screen)

The concept was developed by Richard Hollingshead Jr., who experimented with various
projection and sound techniques in the driveway of his house. Using a 1928 Kodak
projector mounted on the hood of his car and aimed at a screen pinned to some trees,
 Hollingshead worked out the spacing logistics to make sure that all cars had an
unobstructed view of the screen. He received a patent for his idea in May 1933 and opened
his first drive-in theater only three weeks later. They quickly fanned out across the country.
