December's Featured Place
Minnesota Drive-In Theatres

The first drive-in in Minnesota opened in 1948 in Bloomington. Drive-in theaters took off at the end of WWII due to an increase in the popularity of the automobiles. In the 1960s and 1970s, families moved away from the cities that had indoor movie theaters to the suburbs where outdoor drive-in theaters were available for family entertainment. Moms and dads put the kiddos in the back of the station wagon and traveled to nearby drive-ins. When the movie started at twilight, the kids fell asleep and mom and dad could enjoy an inexpensive night out under the stars viewing the movie on a large screen and listening to the sound from the speaker placed on the driver's side window.

A major growth of the Old Highland Neighborhood occurred during the 1880s and 1890s. This period saw large architecturally designed and contractor-built residences of distinctive period styles.
