The government imposed social distancing inside establishment amid the spread of COVID-19. The drive-in cinema would allow customers to enjoy movies while observing health protocols.

A drive-in theater or drive-in cinema is a form of cinema structure consisting of a large outdoor movie screen, a projection booth, a concession stand, and a large parking area for automobiles.

Within this enclosed area, customers can view movies from the privacy and comfort of their cars. Some drive-ins have small playgrounds for children and a few picnic tables or benches.

A partial drive-in theater—Theatre de Guadalupe—was opened in Las Cruces, New Mexico, on April 23, 1915. The first movie shown by the Theatre de Guadalupe was Bags of Gold, produced by Siegmund Lubin. Theatre de Guadalupe soon was renamed De Lux Theater before closing in July 1916.

Demi Lovato engaged with Max Ehrich

Singer Demi Lovato announced her engagement with boyfriend Max Ehrich on her Instagram Thursday.

“When I was a little girl, my birth dad always called me his “little partner” – something that might’ve sounded strange without his southern cowboy like accent. To me it made perfect sense. And today that word makes perfect sense again but today I’m officially going to be someone else’s partner,” Lovato said in her post.

“I knew I loved you the moment I met you. It was something I can’t describe to anyone who hasn’t experienced it firsthand but luckily you did too..,” she added.

“You never pressure me to be anything other than myself. And you make me want to be the best version of myself,” she said.

Demi added that she’s “honored” to accept Ehrich’s hand in marriage and that she’s “ecstatcic” to start a family with him.
