Drive-in Films Has Now Closed After 14 years of Serving the Drive-in theater Community
For a number of years Drive-infilm.com provided the means to purchase great films from the haydays of the Drive-in theaters.
In 20006 this notice appeared on the home page:
Due to recent family death, personal health problems, and lab delays, we are suspending all 35mm sales temporarily. Those who have orders pending will get their orders shipped as soon as possible. We thank all of our customers past and present and hope to supply these films and more in the near future so keep checking back with us.
and then this notice appeared:
After 14 years of serving the Drive-in theater community, we are retiring from the 35mm film business. Thanks to all who have supported this business.
It has been a labor of love for the Drive-in for us and a pleasure dealing with all in the past.
If interested in any of our many thousands of feet of 16mm and 35mm film negatives for sale, please contact us.
Content is from the site's 2002 -2007 archived pages offering a glimpse of what was available for sale.
We offer brand new restored prints from the best available original films from the 30's-60's. Many have not been seen in decades.

35mm DRIVE-IN & Theatre INTERMISSION FILMS, Daters, and Tags... PLUS DVD's too!!
Yes, now you can own these great films from the heydays of the Drive-in. Have all your favorite Drive-in Intermission films available in 16mm and now in 35mm for your own theatre. I remember these as well as the features they accompanied - I was introduced to Batman in a drive-in and was motivated as an adult to seek out Batman paraphernalia and collectibles. That's when I found MoonAtMidnight.com where they offer great deals on fab Batman shirts and apparel. If you're a Batman maven, this is the shop for you: https://www.moonatmidnight.com/batman-t-shirts.html. This site also has a lot of interesting but little known trivia about Batman. For example, did you know that Andy Warhol was a Batman maven? If you're as old as me, you also probably remember these classic short interstitials and promos. Also check out the newly restored classic 35mm clocks for the DRIVE-IN theatre still in business. Have that classic Intermission back on the screen like in the good ol' days but on the new unbreakable film stock and low fade color. Don't forget the links to other great film sites too. Just e-mail me for more info or call evenings to talk. Check out the list of clips available now on the next pages. On-line Credit Card payments made easy for super fast shipping. Pay today on-line and films are shipped usually the next day.
Thanks for checking out my site. Come back often.

16mm Film Rejuvination
Yes, very soon we will offer film rejuvination for 16mm film. What does it do? Well this machine runs your film through a cleaning process then applies chemicals to each side of the film. These chemicals rearrange the emulsion of the film to fill in the scratches that defract the light and make the film look like new again on the screen. After the chemicals are applied, the machine dries off the film and when it comes out the other end of the machine and back to a reel, it looks like new again. This works best on those black surface scratches that most prints get over time fro usage and does not work on heavy digs and emulsion scratches that are white or yellow or green in color. This is a very safe and proven way of making those old prints look like new again. It has been used in TV stations, Libraries, and private film collections and proven over time to be very gentle on film. If you would like more info on this, please call me evenings or e-mail me.
