Curiosity got me today, and wanted to double check a few things on some of the files I created earlier. I was pleasantly surprised to see download count for Drive-In Theaters = 1017. Wow! Thanks again NickJR for your help.
I opened the drive in POI file but it only had 508 entries. Is there another file that I should look for?
he was refering to how many people have downloaded his file;)
It seems that I have a lot to learn about the inner-workings of this web-site.
You are welcome jmarqua
I'm having trouble converting the drive-in file to ov2 for my tomtom, its the only csv file I've had trouble with got any ideas?

all of those changes have now been made. I would encourage everyone to check out this file and see if the locations in their area are up and running still. Please post here if your local spots need to be removed.
The Porterville Drive In Theater (row 32) has been closed for a couple of years now. I will miss that place lots of memories from childhood wearing my PJ's in the backseat, to sneaking in beer and a few friends in the monster trunk of my Paremts Chrysler New Yorker (I had smaller Dorm rooms in college)during High School.
I have removed that one from the file, thanks for reporting it.
The theater in Marysville closed quite a while back.

The Southington Drive-In closed a few years ago. It's still there but I think it's only used for Flea Markets now.
935 Meriden Waterbury Turnpike, Plantsville, CT 06479 (860) 628-2205
Both of those have now been removed from the file.
Great job everyone.
I know this isn't the right place to post this but I sent in some pig icons a few weeks ago and I was wondering when I would see them up in the icon secion.
I will be working on icons today. I usually don't get to icons and sounds until I am caught up with everything else. Sometimes I get a bit backed up in that department.
I am planning on being caught up before I leave on Friday.
Thanks Miss POI!
Those icons are now up:
Very cute I might add.
Here's a new one, only a couple of years old. It's small compared to the ones of old.

Hello.....in case you are still wanting to add more, this one below is for Athens Alabama.
Cinemagic Drive-in Theatre
1702 South Jefferson Street
Athens, AL 35611
You probably already know about this but I found a website with a large listing of drive-ins and you can select Open or Closed. There are a few in Alabama that are not on your list in case you wanted to add those as well.
It can be found at:
Hope this helps.
This need to add:
Keysville Drive-In 37.079074,-78.440876
I am not sure where I should post an update to the Drive-In file, so I will post it here unless I am told otherwise.
The drive-in located in Everett, WA, the Puget Park Drive-In, has closed and is torn down.
Thanks for all of your efforts with the poi files!
DL file found one not listed, been there for decades.
Port Hope Drive-In Theatre
2141 Theatre Rd S
The Bel Air Drive-In closed back in '05 or '06.
But Bengies, the last remaining drive-in in Maryland is still going strong.
Sadly the drive-in located in Winnipeg, Manitoba showed its last movie in 2007.
Thanks to all for putting together this great list!
The Clearwater Drive-In is located 3 kilometers northeast of Kyle, Saskatchewan. Family fun July through August!
CLEARWATER DRIVE-IN THEATER
Kyle, SK. S0L1T0
Continental Drive-in theater, Wicksburg, AL. It has four screens.
Coordinates are: 31.242211,-85.623263
Small typo for a local drive-in: "Mustand" should be "Mustang".
I'll update the local drive-ins once the season opens. There were two new ones last year, but I'm not sure if they'll re-open this year.
Thanks to all who maintain this list.
And... first post! I used to be active on POI Friends, just discovered they closed when I started updating my new Nuvi 1490.
Welcome csilvest and have fun.
This file is very outdated. Sadly lots of theatres closed with the forced digital conversion, though since it was last updated, there have been new theatres.
If I were to work through these theatres, whats the process to do an updated file?
Would you want to keep the CLOSED ones in the list or just open ones?
I think you'll find even more closed by now.
If you want to update the file, remove any closed locations. Who really cares if there ever was one at a closed location.
Knowing our old drive-ins are closed we have wondered if any were still standing. Marking closed but still standing might be of interest to older people like me. If closed and no longer there no need to keep.
I have finally made it through checking the entire list and removing closed ones, adding in new ones. I checked every GPS coordinate for the open ones. There were 2 that had no status of if they were going to open this year or not, so they were left off.
Total 352 open drive-ins.
how do I get it updated
I think you'll have to contact Andrea or Jonathan for this. They will add you as the new maintainer and give you access to update the original file.
You can send it to the owner of the File via message from his Profile, or send it to Globeturtle, (Angela), the same way. If I missed that you took the file over, you should be able to upload ti from the File's page in the POI list.
