The Remarkable Theater — the pop-up drive-in at the Imperial Avenue parking lot — was the surprise hit of summer (and fall).
Carloads of families and friends (no more than 5 per vehicle!) “thronged” the site (though never too close to each other). They enjoyed classic and relatively new films: comedies, action, romance.
There were special events too, including fundraisers (with videos), and a special showing of the Staples High School boys’ soccer team match at Norwalk (we won).
At the same time, the Remarkable Theater provided employment for people with disabilities. It was a win-win-win.
Today the big screen was dismantled. We hope it will be back next year.
And after COVID is vanquished (wear your mask!), every parking space can be filled.
