Everything’s up to date in Kansas City—especially when it comes to Drive In movies…
The Boulevard Drive-In made its debut in 1950 and remains as the oldest, continously operating movie theater in the greater Kansas City area.
In 1999 the outdoor venue’s owner and operator Wes Neal installed DTS Digital Sound, a first for Drive In’s anywhere.
And for the 2012 season, Neal and grandson Brian Neal are really stepping it up with another FIRST.
The BOULEVARD Drive In is currently in the final stages of converting its facilities to state-of-the-art Christie 4K Digital projection equipment powered by a 6,000 watt Xenon bulb .
According to the Neal’s, "No other Drive In in the country will have as sharp and crisp a picture on the screen as we will and our digital sound will be crystal clear."
Note that just as at the I-70 and TWIN Drive In’s, movie sound is broadcast to car radios via FM frequencies.
The BOULEVARD will be showing off its new 4K digital projection system next Friday, April 6th with an absolutely free, one night Fan Night featuring a great double feature of Steven Spielberg classics, RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK starring Harrison Ford and the original BACK TO THE FUTURE with Michael J. Fox.
You can print your free Fan Night pass good for one carload (each) now on the BOULEVARD’s Facebook page:
Do it soon before they’re gone!
