Israel’s First Drive-in Movie Opens Soon with 960-car Capacity

Israel’s first drive-in movie house will open in mid-October with room for 960 cars, local officials announced today. The drive-in will be located north of the Tel Aviv Exhibition Gardens and will feature a self-service restaurant.

Recent movie releases will be shown, with two shows nightly and a new movie starting each week, the officials said. A group of foreign and Israeli businessmen have invested in the enterprise. Prices for admission to the drive-in will be similar to already existing prices at regular movie houses.
