standing with both new and old

Meadow Bridge Drive-In owner Howard McClanahan stands beside his new Dolby digital projector. The old 35mm projector stands in the background. McClanahan says the new projector cost more than he paid for the drive-in itself. While managing the theater with his wife, he also worked several other jobs until his retirement in 2001. Now the theater is his main work. Work at the drive-in has always been a family affair. As a teen, McClanahan’s daughter, Melinda Burdette, swept up popcorn, sold tickets, and made pizzas as her friends watched movies outside. Her mother, Lucy, works there too, as did her grandmother. Now, her son and soon-to-be daughter-in-law are starting to learn the ropes.
