Short Description: 
The Film Show visits Oregon drive-in theaters and previews the 2014 Portland Film Fest

Wait, drive-in theaters still exist in Oregon?  Yes, and they seem to be more popular than ever!  All summer long, you can bring your classic car, your bike, or even your two legs to a screening under the stars.

We'll be talking with Brian Francis of the 99W drive-in in Newberg about the storied history and the uncertain future of the theater that his grandfather started over 60 years ago.  And we'll visit Thomas Phillipson of the Northwest Film Center to learn about Top Down Rooftop Cinema as well as the Drive-In at Zidell Yards.

Also, we'll hear from Portland Film Fest director Josh Leake about highlights of next month's 2014 festival.
