This year we brought back the All-American Drive-In for six nights in August. Thanks to the Northfield Bank Foundation we doubled our screen size to 40 feet. Stereo sound was area-cast on FM so every vehicle will have a super experience. In addition, loudspeakers brought the sound to those hanging out at the snack bar or at the picnic tables up front.
It was the super seventies at Historic Richmond Town brought to you by Rab's Country Lanes. Three big, popular films! Plus present-day short films. What a mix of madness and fun on one big screen! It was hours and hours of amusement for the whole family. With a snack bar filled with candies you remember and love.
A WORD FROM OUR SPONSORS
• Spots created by the All American Drive-In Committee •
Our All American Drive-In guests saw some of the best and most innovative independent short films produced today. These films transform the All American Drive-in an international film fest. So for the price of one ticket you saw a classic popular film rarely projected on a huge screen and cool cutting edge films that you can't see anywhere else.
Our committee was led by eight-time Emmy Award winning director and producer, Ed Wiseman and its members were young filmmakers and museum staff.
All American Drive-In Awards
These two top winners were revealed during the Drive-In on the first night each winning film was screened. The winners received a $500.00 US Savings Bond.

A large number of talented filmmakers wanted to park their film at the Drive-In. Over 1000 films from around the world were submitted! It took a lot of serious judging by our committee of award winning professional filmmakers and culture geeks to whittle down the long list to a select few. But we did it!
Congratulations to the following films that were selected be screened at the Drive-In.
