Trivia Question for March 2, 2017 – Drive in theater

QUESTION: When was the drive in theater patented?
ANSWER: In 1921, a drive-in was opened by Claude V. Caver in Comanche, Texas. Caver obtained a permit from the city to project films downtown. With cars parked bumper-to-bumper, patrons witnessed the screening of silent films from their vehicles.

The drive-in theater was patented by Richard M. Hollingshead, in May 1933 in Camden, New Jersey.
