Plan your Beijing tour? If you are a drive-in fan, Beijing will not let you down. A drive-in theater is an outdoor cinema with a large movie screen and a large parking lot for automobiles. People are able to watch movies from their cars with privacy and comfort. The first drive-in was created by Richard M. Hollingshead, Jr. in the United Stated. He opened the first drive-in theater in his backyard in New Jersey June 6, 1933. The drive-in quickly spreaded to the world and gained much popularity.
