My thought is why did hollywood do the conversion in the first place? Can
someone answer me that? I like the old movies and such and see no real
cinematic value of some hollywood movies. For example CGI of the new star
wars vs. the old model use of Star Wars that used good film making
techniques.

(The drive-in movie theater is in Cottage Grove Minnesota and damn WalMart
bought the land. Really sucks.)
