Arizona drive-in closes after nearly 60 years

CREATED Sep. 29, 2013

GLOBE, Ariz. (AP) - One of the last drive-in theaters in Arizona has closed.
   
KSAZ-TV reports that the Apache Drive-In theatre in Globe showed its last movie on Saturday after nearly six decades.
   
Apache Drive-in owner Bob Hollis says it costs too much to keep up with the times, especially since movies have gone digital.
   
The closing drew long-time fans who came dressed in poodle skirts and brought classic cars.
   
Officials say the only drive-in movie theater in Arizona now is in Glendale.
