TheiC outdoor theatres, with a total capacity of 263.879 cars, were built at an estimated cost of $52.125,800—giving the industry its second biggest drive-in year in its history. The 690 figure includes outdoor theatres either opened or placed under construction during the 12-month period ending December 31. This compares with 403 drive-ins reported in 1951. The total, however, falls to come near the 1,154 projects recorded in 1950, an unrestricted year. ADDS 700,000 SEATS Figuring that each 750 cars represents a a 2,000-seat theatre, the 1952 totals added approximately 700,000 seats for motion picture patrons, or the equivalent of 350 de luxe theatres each w^ith a 2,000-seat capacity It is expected, however, that with restrictions lifted and steel and copper more readily available, at least 1,000 more drive-ins will be built in 1953. On an estimated cost of $200 per car and the theatres averaging 500 cars each, the industry will put an additional $100,000,000 into motion picture exhibition facilities. Because of steel and copper limitations, exhibitors kept down the size of the drive-in projects, limiting them to a national average of 380 cars each. Theatremen apparently le?.rned how- to get around restrictions by using substitute materials and planning the drive-ins on more modest car capacity than if materials had been unrestricted. Many of the exhibitors constructed expandable units, with the intention of increasing car capacity when restrictions were lifted.
