Seems like a good idea. Hope

Seems like a good idea. Hope it works out to be a good idea.

Wow. When Walmart went on a quest for land near urban areas to build new stores, one target was drive-in theaters. On Clinton Highway, for instance, the land where the Walmart center is now located used to be a wonderful, double-screen drive-in. This center has built out by installing small businesses in the parking lot. Probably better land use than a drive-in.

Smart Land Use

No doubt this will be a winner that will catch on for other developers. Having shopping during the day and a theater at night is better land use.
