18. Harvest Moon Twin Drive-In Movie Theater
Location: Gibson City, Ill.
Harvest Moon is one of the first truly sustainable drive-ins, with energy provided by a Skystream 2.4kw turbine on a 50 foot tower which creates 30% of the theater's electricity during the season. This drive-in also utilizes LED lighting, soy paints, energy efficient appliances, and recyclable products to reduce their carbon footprint. A larger solar panel set up is planned for this year to reduce an additional 50% of the electricity, plus a Solar Hot Water System is set for installation. We definitely dig some old school entertainment with an eye on the future. A good look for 21st century drive-ins.
