Film Festival Coming To Kanopolis Drive-In

Patrons of a small central Kansas drive-in will be part of a national effort to save venerable outdoor movie theaters.
A miniature "film festival" will play at the Kanopolis Drive-In on Aug. 25. It will include two original short films followed by two major movies.
The evening is part of a New York woman's efforts to promote drive-in theaters. Five years ago, C.C. Webster started a nonprofit group called Drive-In Film Festival. She says the mission is to bring independent films and film classics to small-town drive-ins across the U.S.
Webster thinks no other theater offers the same relaxed and fun approach to watching the movies.
In addition to the movies, the film festival includes old-fashioned carnival games, raffles and merchandise.
