Part film screening, part art installation and part urban exploration – Empire Drive-In is possibly the world’s first no-drive drive-in movie theater. Artists Jeff Stark and Todd Chandler have created a fantastic cinematic experience using junked cars and salvaged materials. Here is a brief description from the project’s website: »Empire Drive-In is a full-scale theater made out of wrecked cars and a 40-foot screen constructed of salvaged wood. Audiences climb in and out of cars rescued from the junkyard to watch films projected on the big screen. Low-power radio transmits stereo audio directly to each car«. The project was first commissioned for the 2010 01SJ Biennial in San Jose, California and since then repeated at different locations.
