Tallahassee, Florida -- March 24, 2011 --

In 1953, if you were going to see From Here to Eternity, or a double feature of Shane and Roman Holiday at the drive-in theater, there could be a big problem with traffic backing up at the entrance as people paid for themselves and their dates. So that year, lawmakers put some rules for drive-in entrances and exits into the law. The law is still there, but lazy summer nights watching Audrey Hepburn and Burt Lancaster aren’t – there are only six drive-in theaters left in Florida. And so the House on Thursday unanimously passed HB 4009, removing certain requirements for access to outdoor theaters from the law. The measure goes to the Senate.
