JOE BOB'S ADVICE TO THE HOPELESS Victory Over Modernism!
The Country Drive-In, on West Nob Hill Boulevard in Yakima, Wash., is still popular and profitable as the last remaining outdoor theater between Ellensburg and the Tri-Cities, an area that once had 10 drive-ins.

Jeffrey Anderson runs the 9-acre drive-in, which his father opened in 1954 after buying the land and building the theater among apple orchards.

They still play double features on both screens. They've upgraded the projectors, the screens and the concession stand. The car capacity is now 600, and the drive-in now has radio sound.

Jack Laney of Kent, Wash., reminds us that, with eternal vigilance, the drive-in will never die.
