French Drive-In Theater


Welcome to the "Cinémobile," a specially built 18-wheeler equipped with a 100-seat movie theater inside. The truck comes one Saturday per month and plays recent releases. On this occasion, we saw Shrek 4. Seats are comfy--I fell asleep--and it's clean. No food sold, nor allowed. Tickets are actually cheaper than the theaters in Orléans: it's 5.40 euros (~$7.50) for adults, as opposed to 7.50 (~$10.50) in the city.  The Centre Region bought three of these custom trucks to bring movies to people in 46 communities who are living at least 15 km from a regular theater....
