OUR STORY

Summer 2009: A guy in Austin, Texas starts buying up drive-in movie theater speakers on Ebay, teaches himself how to restore them, and opens the first ever Mini Urban Drive-In with the theory that smaller is better!

 

The Boutique drive-in is born by taking advantage of the main things that almost made the drive-in extinct:

The exodus to the Concrete JungleUrban Sprawl (less room meant less space for hundreds of cars)

The advent of VHS, Cable, Satellites, and DVDs meant that people could watch everything at home without having to drive 30 miles out to a field in the middle of nowhere.

But, the boutique Drive-In requires less space and is more exclusive, more personal, more intimate and closer to home.

The Blue Starlite concentrates on indie films, art house, cult, Gen X/Y, childhood favorites, and drive-in classics. A new drive-in experience is born right in the heart of the city!
