Today's Google Doodle is an animated tribute to the first drive-in movie theater, which was opened in New Jersey on June 6, 1933.
An invention of Richard Milton Hollingshead, Jr., the drive-in movie theatre enabled users to watch the movie in open space, from the comfort of their cars.
The drive-in theatre became very popular in the 1950ies and 1960ies, with some 4,000 drive-ins being open in the U.S. at one point, but due to real estate economics, they lost in popularity in subsequent years. A recent figure claims 366 drive-ins are open in the U.S.
